The College of Healthcare Information Management Executives (CHIME) has named Rochester Regional Health one of Healthcare’s Most Wired for 2018. The distinction is based on the system’s ability to adopt, implement and apply new technology to improve healthcare outcomes.
This year’s list of 254 health systems from around the world includes 21 based in New York State. Rochester Regional Health is the only system based in Western New York to make the list. “We are pleased that Rochester Regional Health was selected as one of Healthcare’s Most Wired organizations, and we look forward to keeping pace with healthcare technology to ensure that we remain at the forefront of patient care,” said John Glynn, chief information officer for Rochester Regional Health.
Organizations get named to the Most Wired list based on the results of the Most Wired Survey—an industry-standard benchmark study designed to measure IT adoption in hospitals and health systems. The survey is a useful tool for hospital and health system leaders as they identify areas where they can continue to improve their use of technology.
The ultimate goal of the survey and the Most Wired list is to find the latest best practices and raise the bar for healthcare IT around the world. Organizations are evaluated in two key areas in the survey: using technology to improve the actual delivery of healthcare, and supporting the improvement of population health management and value-based care.
