Orlando Health earns highest recognition in 2023 Most Wired Survey
Achieves perfect score in two categories: acute and ambulatory services
Orlando, FL (November 7, 2023) Orlando Health has earned its first perfect score — Level 10 — for acute and ambulatory services in the College of Healthcare Information Management Executives' (CHIME) Digital Health Most Wired survey for demonstrating an innovative use of technology to improve patient care.
The healthcare system was among 55,000 facilities from around the world rated by CHIME through its annual survey. The Digital Health Most Wired survey and recognition program serves as a comprehensive “digital health check-up” for healthcare organizations and reflects Orlando Health’s commitment to improve healthcare through the advancement of digital health strategies.
“This achievement is simply extraordinary considering that Orlando Health was among approximately 55,000 health care facilities represented,” said senior vice president Novlet Mattis, chief digital and information officer. “Each year, we use the CHIME evaluation as a roadmap for what we need to focus on and work to improve over the coming year. I am so proud of my team and how Orlando Health has adopted digital to provide the highest level of care for our patients.”
To qualify for Level 10, Orlando Health submitted written responses to 100 questions in the Most Wired survey and participated in an audit, with presentations and demonstrations of two case studies by Orlando Health leaders.
"We worked long and hard to prepare for the all-day visit, ensuring that every subject matter expert was ready to address each question CHIME pinpointed for discussion and demonstration," said Tom Maroney, MBA, PhD, senior data scientist, Orlando Health, who facilitated the survey submission process.
CHIME President/CEO Russell P. Branzell said patients receive an elevated level of care when providers drive change through digital transformation.
“We are proud to recognize Orlando Health’s exceptional dedication to digital health excellence, Branzell said. “Your pioneering performance in the industry not only inspires other organizations by example, but also provides patients around the world with better care.”
