Children’s Colorado has been named among the hospitals and health systems at the forefront of technology use that improves delivery of care. It is the sixth year in a row we've received this honor from CHIME HealthCare’s Most Wired®. Now in its 20th year, the survey’s goal is to identify best practices and promote the strategic use of healthcare IT to elevate the health and care of communities around the world. According to an analysis of CHIME HealthCare’s Most Wired survey results, the most successful organizations adopt technology and apply it strategically to achieve exceptional outcomes.
The CHIME report found two key areas that emerged in 2018: the use of foundational technologies that promote infrastructure; and the use of transformational technologies that support patient engagement. This award continues to be a benchmark for how technology is leveraged throughout Children's Colorado to ensure we are providing the best care possible while remaining strategic with emerging technologies.
“Children’s Colorado is proud to be recognized for exemplifying best practices through rapid and efficient adoption, implementation and use of technologies that measurably improves the experience of our patients, families and clinicians,” said Dana Moore, senior vice president and chief information officer. “We are proud to have maximized the benefits of foundational technologies and are embracing new technologies that support population management and value-based care.”
The report findings fell into the two categories of foundational and transformational technologies.
HealthCare’s Most Wired traditionally tracked the adoption of healthcare IT in hospitals and health systems. CHIME took over the Most Wired program and revised the survey questions and methodology this year to highlight strengths and gaps in the industry.
“Healthcare IT has the potential to revolutionize care around the world, but to meet that potential it must be used strategically,” said Russell Branzell, president and CEO of CHIME. “The technology is important, but leadership and a strategic vision are equally important. The diversity of the organizations that earned Most Wired status this year shows quality care can be achieved almost anywhere under the right leadership. By sharing the best practices in Most Wired, we hope quality care will one day be available everywhere.”
