St. Luke’s University Health Network has been recognized for the seventh time by The College of Healthcare Information Management Executives (CHIME) as one of the “Most Wired” healthcare systems nationally, the network recently announced.
“This assessment confirms not merely that St. Luke’s implements technology, but also that the Network fully adopts technology to improve quality, reduce cost, improve decision making and provide better access to care for patients,” said Chad Brisendine, St. Luke’s Chief Information Officer.
More than 16,000 organizations participated in the 2019 Most Wired survey. St. Luke’s is among the top five percent of hospitals and systems to achieve the top Level 9 designation.
The survey assessed the adoption, integration and impact of technologies in health care organizations at all stages of development, from early development to industry leading.
“Health care organizations across the globe are continually striving to raise the standard of care, pushing themselves and their peers to do better,” said Russ Branzell, CHIME president and CEO. “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 (CIOs), chief medical information officers (CMIOs), chief nursing information officers (CNIOs), chief innovation officers (CIOs), chief digital officers (CDOs) and other senior health care IT leaders.
With more than 2,900 members in 56 countries, CHIME provides an 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.
