OSF HealthCare Earns 2020 Most Wired Recognition
OSF HealthCare has earned the 2020 CHIME Digital Health Most Wired recognition from the College of Healthcare Information Management Executives (CHIME). This marks the ninth consecutive year OSF has achieved this honor.
The CHIME Digital Health Most Wired program conducts an annual survey to assess how effectively healthcare organizations apply core and advanced technologies into their clinical and business programs to improve health and care in their communities.
Nearly 31,100 organizations were represented in the 2020 program. Each 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 also received certification based on their overall performance, with level 10 being the highest. OSF HealthCare earned CHIME’s Quality Award for Digital Health, being Level 8 certified in both Acute and Ambulatory Care technology.
“We are pleased to be honored with the Most Wired Quality Award for both our hospitals and clinics this year,” said David Hall, MD, Senior Vice President Information Systems and Chief Information Officer, OSF HealthCare.
“Achieving Most Wired status for 9 years in a row is a testament to the hard work of our analysts, technicians, clinicians and innovators who continue to strive to provide our patients the greatest care possible through our digital technology. Achieving the Quality Award across the entire continuum of care is fitting recognition of the innovations in healthcare technology that our teams have made for many years now. OSF HealthCare will continue to keep pushing to be the digital leader when it comes to providing what is best for our patients and those we serve.”
This is the third year that CHIME has conducted the survey and overseen the program which has been expanded to capture more types of organizations that serve patients across the continuum of care.
