CHIME Honors Most Wired’s Top Tier in Most Improved, Small/Rural and Ambulatory Categories
ANN ARBOR, MI, Dec. 17, 2019 – The College of Healthcare Information Management Executives (CHIME) recently spotlighted top performing healthcare organizations that participated in the 2019 CHIME HealthCare’s Most Wired survey. The organizations were honored for being best in class in three categories: most improved; small and rural; and ambulatory.
The Most Wired survey assesses the adoption, integration and impact of technologies in healthcare organizations. In 2019, CHIME expanded international outreach, added an ambulatory survey and introduced a performance excellence certification system using a Level 1-10 scale. Each participating organization received certification and CHIME also looked at total scores and performance to identify standouts in three categories: healthcare organizations that showed the greatest improvement from 2018 to 2019; small and rural organizations; and the top ambulatory organizations. They are:
- Mercy Medical Center in Cedar Rapids, Iowa;
- Kaleida Health in Buffalo, N.Y.; and
- Martin Luther King Jr. Community Hospital in Los Angeles, Calif.
Small and Rural
- Cogdell Memorial Hospital in Snyder, Texas;
- Bozeman Health in Bozeman, Mont.;
- Western Reserve Hospital in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio; and
- Mt. San Rafael Hospital in Trinidad, Colo.
- University of California, Davis Health in Sacramento, Calif.;
- Children’s Health in Dallas, Texas; and
- UT Health Austin in Austin, Texas.
“Most Wired is a measure of who uses their technological resources and talent in ways that best serve their patients, health organizations and communities,” said Bill Spooner, chair of the Most Wired Governing Board. “We are pleased to find that quality isn’t tied to one organizational type, size or location, and to give well-deserved recognition to leaders across the industry.”
