Franciscan Missionaries of Our Lady Health System Honored for Digital Excellence as a 2023 Digital Health Most Wired Survey Recipient

November 01, 2023

The College of Healthcare Information Management Executives (CHIME), has released its coveted Digital Health Most Wired Survey results for the 2023 data collection period. Franciscan Missionaries of Our Lady Health System (FMOLHS) is proud to announce our Level 8 achievement for the Acute Care and Ambulatory survey selection.

Among the more than 55,000 facilities represented, FMOLHS 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 healthcare organizations at all stages of development, from early development to industry leading.

"We are honored to receive this award as it shows a continued commitment by our organization and our team members to use technology to provide the best care and outcomes for the communities that we serve," said Will Landry, SVP, Chief Information Officer of FMOLHS.

“We are proud to recognize your organization’s exceptional dedication to digital health excellence,” said CHIME President and CEO Russell P. Branzell. “Their pioneering performance in the industry not only inspires other organizations by example, but also provides patients around the world with better care.”

Amid escalating challenges posed by growing cybersecurity threats, evolving care models, staffing shortages and budget constraints, the call for revolutionizing healthcare through technology is moving forward at a rapid pace. The future of healthcare that we envision over the next 30 years will be a world apart from what we have now. Driven by emerging technology, we should expect 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.

CHIME designed the Digital Health Most Wired program to deliver valuable insights into best practices, HIT adoption patterns and digital health market trends. The Dsurvey 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 CHIME's survey reflects the progress of leading healthcare providers as they reinvent healthcare for a new century. 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.
