The College of Healthcare Information Management Executives (CHIME) has named 254 organizations 2018 CHIME HealthCare's Most Wired recipients. The honor is given to hospitals and health systems that are at the forefront of using health care information technology to improve the delivery of care.
For the first time in the history of this award, all hospitals in Mayo Clinic Health System, and Mayo Clinic in Arizona and Florida were award recipients. Because of the timing relative to their electronic health record go-live, a survey was not submitted on behalf of Mayo Clinic hospitals in Rochester.
The IT Customer Relationship Management team coordinated efforts to gather answers and submit surveys on behalf of each hospital. Questions focused on patient engagement, analytics and data management, business and administrative management, disaster recovery, clinical quality and safety, infrastructure, interoperability, population health and clinically-integrated network-accountable care organization, and security.
A total of 647 organizations representing 2,190 hospitals from nine countries submitted surveys. See the list of 2018 award winners.
