The College of Healthcare Information Management Executives (CHIME) announced that Door County Medical Center (DCMC) has earned 2022 CHIME Digital Health Most Wired status. 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.
“Over the last two years, our health system has seen tremendous growth in our health information technologies. The Covid pandemic accelerated our digital platform strategy to meet patients where it is most convenient for them and to keep them engaged throughout their health journey. To be recognized as one of the Most Wired health systems in the United States is a great honor,” says Erick Schrier, DCMC Chief Information Officer.
A total of 565 out of 38,826 organizations represented, or less than 1.5%, achieved Most Wired status in the 2022 Digital Health Most Wired program, which includes four separate surveys: acute, ambulatory, long-term care, and international acute. 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 nine segments: infrastructure; security; business/disaster recovery; administrative/supply chain; analytics/data management; interoperability/population health; patient engagement; clinical quality/safety and Innovation. Participants can use the report and scores to identify strengths and opportunities for improvement. Participants also received certification based on their overall performance, with level 10 being the highest.
