Parkview Earns 2021 CHIME Digital Health Most Wired Recognition

 

PUEBLO, October 19, 2021- The College of Healthcare Information Management Executives (CHIME) announced Parkview has earned 2021 CHIME Digital Health Most Wired recognition as a certified level 9.  This is up from level 8 in 2020. 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.

“Information technology saw unprecedented times in 2020 and the industry will continue to grow, adapt and enhance throughout the years.  The Most Wired Award represents the strong collaboration by all staff at Parkview in the adoption, implementation, and most importantly, the use of information technology. It is through this collaboration that we enhance the quality and safety of patient care,” stated Vice President of IT and Chief Information Officer, Steve Shirley.    

A total of 36,674 organizations were represented in the 2021 Digital Health Most Wired program, which includes four separate surveys: acute, ambulatory, long-term care and international acute. 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.

This is the fourth year that CHIME has conducted the survey and overseen the program.
