The College of Healthcare Information Management Executives (CHIME) has named AdventHealth a 2019 Most Wired award winner, which includes the AdventHealth operations in Volusia, Flagler and Lake counties.
CHIME’s Most Wired program recognizes health care organizations that apply technology to clinical and business programs to improve health and care in their communities.
This is the seventh consecutive year AdventHealth has earned the Most Wired designation.
“Our organization has prioritized the use of technology and innovation to elevate the care and services that AdventHealth provides,” said Brent Snyder, chief information officer for AdventHealth. “Being a recipient of the Most Wired recognition again is a testament to the level of adoption of IT applications and infrastructure to support the operations of AdventHealth, as well as the talent and dedication of our AIT team members who support and maintain our systems.”
This year, CHIME introduced a 10-level scale to benchmark participants’ level of adoption and outcomes achieved. AdventHealth earned Most Wired Certified Level 8, earning the Quality Award and special recognition at the 2019 CHIME Fall CIO Forum in November.
More than 16,000 organizations were represented in the 2019 Most Wired program. The surveys assessed the adoption, integration and impact of technologies in health care organizations at all stages of development, from early development to industry leading.
“Healthcare organizations across the globe are continually striving to raise the standard of care, pushing themselves and their peers to do better,” said CHIME President and CEO Russ Branzell. “We designed Most Wired to identify and share those leading practices so everyone can benefit. It is an honor to be among those that perform at the highest levels, knowing that the excellence they achieve will impact patients for years to come.”
CHIME is an executive organization dedicated to serving chief information officers, chief medical information officers, chief nursing information officers, chief innovation officers, chief digital officers and other senior health care IT leaders.
With more than 2,900 members in 56 countries and over 150 health care IT business partners and professional-services firms, CHIME provides a highly interactive, trusted environment, enabling senior professional and industry leaders to collaborate; exchange best practices; address professional development needs; and advocate the effective use of information management to improve the health and care in the communities they serve.
