Lima Memorial is proud to announce its Level 7 achievement in the Acute and Ambulatory survey selection for the College of Healthcare Information Management Executives’ (CHIME) coveted Digital Health Most Wired Survey 2023 data collection period.

Among the more than 55,000 facilities represented, Lima Memorial ranked above peers in categories like analytics and data management, population health, infrastructure and patient engagement. The survey assessed the adoption, integration and impact of technologies in health care organizations at all stages of development, from early development to industry leading.

“We are thrilled to be recognized with the 2023 Digital Health Most Wired designation. This accolade is a testament to our relentless pursuit of innovation and excellence in healthcare technology,” said Josh Hines, Executive Director of Information Technology at Lima Memorial Health System. “For us, it is more than just a commitment to digital progress; it’s about the promise we make to our patients every day—to provide compassionate and quality care.”

According to CHIME, escalating challenges posed by growing cybersecurity threats, evolving care models, staffing shortages and budget constraints have called for revolutionizing healthcare through technology, and it is moving forward at a rapid pace. Driven by emerging technology, it is expected that digital innovation—enabled by fully interoperable data, artificial intelligence and open, secure platforms—will drive much of this change. A strategic roadmap will be more critical than ever to navigate this myriad of change.

“The Digital Health Most Wired survey and recognition program serves as a comprehensive ‘Digital Health Check-up’ for healthcare organizations across the world,” shared CHIME President and CEO Russell P. Branzell. 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.”
