The College of Healthcare Information Management Executives (CHIME) rated LVHN a Level 10 health care organization in the acute and ambulatory categories in its Most Wired Survey for 2022. More than 38,000 hospitals and health care organizations from across the world took part in the survey, but only 18 received a Level 10 designation.

 

“The Most Wired 10 award is a testament to the teamwork and efforts LVHN colleagues deliver every day.” - Mike Minear, Senior Vice President, Chief Information Officer, LVHN

Hospitals that receive a Level 10 rating are required to participate in a rigorous survey that rates several factors including data management, population health, infrastructure and patient engagement.

“Earning Most Wired at this level is only accomplished when thousands of colleagues across LVHN contribute to deploying, supporting, using and improving the clinical systems and informatics LVHN uses to deliver patient care,” says Mike Minear, Senior Vice President, Chief Information Officer, LVHN. “The Most Wired 10 award is a testament to the teamwork and efforts LVHN colleagues deliver every day.”  

Technology is a crucial component in health care and can determine the quality of care a patient receives. The Digital Health Most Wired survey and recognition program offers health care organizations across the world an opportunity to assess how efficiently and effectively they use technology.

To earn a Level 10 Most Wired recognition, LVHN demonstrated an outstanding record of leveraging the power of digital technology within a visionary corporate strategy.

“We are proud to honor LVHN’s exceptional dedication to excellence in digital health,” says Russell P. Branzell, President and CEO, CHIME. “Your pioneering performance in the industry inspires other organizations by example. Patients in communities around the world receive better care when you drive change through digital transformation, as you have proven through your success in this rigorous program.”

CHIME defines Level 10 organizations as leaders in health care technology who actively push the industry forward, often leveraging technology in innovative ways and encouraging deep adoption across their organization. LVHN has earned Most Wired awards for seventeen consecutive years.
