The College of Healthcare Information Management Executives (CHIME), has released their coveted Digital Health Most Wired Survey results for the 2022 data collection period.  University of Missouri Health Care has been certified as an acute “level 8” organization and ambulatory “level 8” organization for using technologies and strategies to improve the health of Missourians.

Among the more than 38,000 organizations surveyed by CHIME, University of Missouri Health Care 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.

“At MU Health Care, we take great pride in our commitment to utilizing the latest technology to ensure high quality health care and the best possible patient experience with an emphasis on accessibility and convenience,” said Thomas Selva, MD, chief medical information officer. “We are grateful to have consistently received this recognition over the past 12 years.”

The Digital Health Most Wired survey and recognition program serves as a comprehensive “Digital Health Check-up” for healthcare organizations across the world.  As success in digital health increasingly determines the quality of patient care, the scope of the CHIME Digital Health Most Wired survey reflects the progress of leading healthcare providers as they reinvent healthcare for a new century.

“We are proud to honor MU Health Care’s exceptional dedication to excellence in digital health,” said CHIME President and CEO Russell P. Branzell. “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.”

MU Health Care’s health IT operations are led by the Tiger Institute for Health Innovation, a unique private-public partnership between the University of Missouri and Oracle Cerner.  The Tiger Institute was formed a decade ago as a model for leveraging industry collaboration and better health care. Their work to date has improved the health and safety of patients, reduced costs and shaped the future of care for Missouri and beyond.

“As the healthcare landscape continually evolves and adapts to changing environments, we work to ensure our strategies remain on the leading edge of technology,” said Deb Dow, interim chief information officer for MU Health Care. “We are grateful for the recognition as one of health care’s most wired organizations, and we will continue to leverage technology and ensure continued innovation on behalf of our patients.”
