ATLANTA (Oct. 24, 2023) - The College of Healthcare Information Management Executives (CHIME) has released their coveted Digital Health Most Wired Survey results for the 2023 data collection period. Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta is proud to announce Level 9 achievement for the Acute survey selection. This is the eighth consecutive year Children’s has received this honor.
Among the more than 55,000 facilities represented, Children’s ranked above peers in categories such as analytics and data management, population health, infrastructure, and patient engagement. The survey assessed the adoption, integration and impact of technologies in healthcare organizations at all stages of development, from early development to industry leading.
“We are proud to recognize Children’s exceptional dedication to digital health excellence,” said CHIME President and CEO Russell P. Branzell. “Children’s pioneering performance in the industry not only inspires other organizations by example, but also provides patients around the world with better care.”
The Digital Health Most Wired survey and recognition program serves as a comprehensive “Digital Health Check-up” for healthcare organizations across the world. As success in digital health increasingly determines the quality of patient care, the scope of the CHIME Digital Health Most Wired survey reflects the progress of leading healthcare providers as they reinvent healthcare for a new century. This remarkable achievement stretches far beyond information technology and reflects an entire organization’s commitment to improve healthcare through the advancement of digital health strategies.
“This incredible achievement is a testament to our IS&T teams and their ongoing commitment to do everything possible to make anything possible for kids,” said Jeremy Meller, Chief Information Officer at Children’s. “As we look to the future of pediatric care—including the opening of Arthur M. Blank Hospital in September 2024—we know technology will continue to be a pivotal force in our ability to fulfill our vision.”
