2020 CHIME Digital Health Most Wired Award

PIH Health is pleased to announce that The College of Healthcare Information Management Executives (CHIME) has recognized PIH Health Downey Hospital, PIH Health Whittier Hospital and PIH Health Physicians as 2020 CHIME Digital Health Most Wired recipients. 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. 

“PIH Health is honored to earn the Most Wired recognition once again,” said Jason Fischer, PIH Health Chief Information Officer. “This recognition is a testament to our ongoing commitment of providing high-quality patient care by providing the latest technology advancements in health for the communities we serve.”  

A total of 30,091 organizations were represented in the 2020 Digital Health Most Wired program, which this year included four separate surveys: domestic, ambulatory, long-term care and international. 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 also received certification based on their overall performance, with level 10 being the highest Superior Performance Excellence Award. PIH Health Whittier Hospital and PIH Health Downey Hospital received Most Wired level 9 certification Performance Excellence Award, and PIH Health Physicians received a Most Wired level 8 certification Quality Award. 

As in past years, CHIME will publish an industry trends report based on Digital Health Most Wired responses from U.S. participants. The 2020 National Trends Report is scheduled to be released in November during CHIME20 Digital.
