Reid Health honored for excellence in 2023 Digital Health Most Wired program
Oct. 6, 2023 -- For the second straight year, Reid Health has earned Level 8 recognition in the Digital Health Most Wired program from the College of Healthcare Information Management Executives (CHIME).
The program aims to elevate health and healthcare in communities around the world through the optimal use of information technology. The annual survey is designed to identify and recognize healthcare organizations that exemplify best practices through their adoption, implementation, and use of information technology.
Among the more than 55,000 facilities represented this year, Reid ranked above peers in categories such as analytics and data management, population health, infrastructure, and patient engagement.
All participants in the program are certified at a level from 1-10 that represents their achievements, providing organizations with a benchmark against a worldwide industry standard. Reid once again received Level 8 certifications for acute and ambulatory care, one of just 10 health systems in Indiana to achieve Level 8 or higher in either category. It's the 15th time overall and ninth in the past 10 years that Reid has been honored.
"We are proud to recognize Reid Health's exceptional dedication to digital health excellence," said CHIME President and CEO Russell P. Branzell. "Reid's pioneering performance in the industry not only inspires other organizations by example but also provides patients around the world with better care."
