Adventist Health’s information technology department has earned an award for their meaningful work to improve patient care. The College of Healthcare Information Management Executives (CHIME) assesses how effectively healthcare organizations apply core and advanced technologies into their clinical and business programs to improve health and care in their communities. CHIME is pleased to announce that Adventist Health has earned 2020 CHIME Digital Health Most Wired recognition as a certified level 8.

This is the second year that Adventist Health has received this award, holding on to level 8 and improving 2.9%from last year’s 2019 submission.

“I’m incredibly proud of our team for this prestigious award,” says Matt Fink, chief information officer. “We continually strive for excellence in digital technology to enhance care for our patients. This award is a shining light during an especially challenging year with COVID-19.”

A total of 30,091 organizations were represented in the 2020 Digital Health Most Wired program survey, which this year included four separate surveys: domestic, ambulatory, long-term care and international. The surveys assessed the adoption, integration and impact of technologies in healthcare organizations at all stages of development, from early development to industry leading.

Each participating organization received a customized benchmarking report, an overall score and scores for individual levels in eight segments: infrastructure, security, business/disaster recovery, administrative/supply chain, analytics/data management, interoperability/population health, patient engagement and clinical quality/safety. Participants can use the report and scores to identify strengths and opportunities for improvement. Participants also received certification based on their overall performance, with level 10 being the highest.
