The College of Healthcare Information Management Executive’s (CHIME) has announced that Lima Memorial Health System has earned 2019 CHIME HealthCare’s Most Wired award as a certified Level 8 organization, one of the highest distinctions awarded. This is due to Lima Memorial Health Systems’ effective application of advanced technologies into clinical and business programs to improve health and care in our Lima community. The Most Wired program conducts an annual survey to assess how effectively healthcare organizations apply core and advanced technologies into their clinical and business programs.
“This recognition really reflects the commitment the organization has to investing in technology for our community. As technology continues to advance, it is imperative we continue to evolve and integrate the technologies at Lima Memorial to securely protect our patients, while also developing technologies to support population health management, value-based care, patient engagement and telehealth,” Mike Sunderland, Lima Memorial Health System Chief Information Officer stated.
Lima Memorial is among only 16,168 other organizations that were represented in this year’s Most Wired program, which included three separate surveys: domestic, ambulatory and international. The surveys assessed the adoption, integration and impact of technologies in healthcare organizations at all stages of development. This survey allows us to gauge where we are within the industry and identify best practices that allow us to continue to elevate care for our region.
CHIME provides a highly interactive, trusted environment enabling senior professional and industry leaders to collaborate, exchange best practices, address professional development needs and advocate the effective use of information management to improve the health and care in communities they serve. Lima Memorial Health System remains committed to adapting to the ever-changing healthcare industry and is very proud to receive this award. This distinction recognizes Lima Memorial as a leader that strives for excellence and is driving change in the industry.
