St. Charles earns 'Most Wired' recognition

The College of Healthcare Information Management Executives (CHIME) has recognized St. Charles as 'Most Wired' in both the acute and ambulatory fields.

The CHIME Digital Health Most Wired program conducts an annual survey to assess how effectively health care organizations apply core and advanced technologies into their clinical and business programs to improve health and care in their communities.

St. Charles earned the 2020 CHIME Digital Health Most Wired recognition in the acute and ambulatory fields for having deployed technologies and strategies (such as population health and cost-of-care analytics, as well as patient portals) to help analyze data and achieve meaningful clinical and efficiency outcomes.

A total of 30,091 organizations were represented in the 2020 Digital Health Most Wired program, which this year included four separate surveys: domestic, ambulatory, long-term care and international. The surveys assessed the adoption, integration and impact of technologies in health care organizations at all stages of development, from early development to industry leading.
