The College of Healthcare Information Management Executives just announced that Baptist Memorial Health Care has earned 2019 CHIME HealthCare’s Most Wired recognition as a certified level seven.
Baptist was the only health care organization in the Mid-South and one of only two in the areas we serve to earn the recognition.
The Most Wired program conducts an annual survey to assess how effectively health care organizations apply core and advanced technologies into their clinical and business programs to improve health and care in their communities.
“This recognition underscores our commitment to our patients,” said Beverly Jordan, Baptist Memorial Health Care’s vice president and chief information and transformation officer. “Technology has become such an important part of health care today, so it’s important for us to implement best practices because that will lead to better patient care.”
A total of 16,168 organizations were represented in the 2019 Most Wired program, which this year included three separate surveys: domestic, ambulatory and international. The surveys assessed the adoption, integration and impact of technologies in health care organizations at all stages of development, from early development to industry leading.
