Southcoast Health Recognized for Excellence through the 2022 Digital Health Most Wired Survey

The College of Healthcare Information Management Executives (CHIME), has released their coveted Digital Health Most Wired Survey results for the 2022 data collection period.

This year, Southcoast Health earned a Level 9 achievement for both the acute (hospital) and ambulatory setting survey selections.

“We are proud to be recognized by the Most Wired Survey for the fourth year in a row,” said Jim Feen, Senior Vice President, Chief Digital & Information Officer at Southcoast Health. “This is a complete team effort, and I want to thank and congratulate all our clinical and business partners, and our digital health services teams for their ongoing dedication to innovation, and effort to embrace technology and health analytics to improve how we care for our community.” 

Among the more than 38,000 organizations surveyed by CHIME, Southcoast Health 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.

Only eight organizations worldwide earned the highest achievement of Level 10, and 70 organizations earned a Level 9. Among the Level 9 recipients, Southcoast Health is the only health system in Massachusetts and Rhode Island to be recognized at this level. 

“Healthcare has been in a state of persistent disruption and uncertainty, but one thing that is crystal clear – charting a course through the digital health frontier is a can’t proposition,” said Dr. Jay Lawrence, Senior Vice President, Chief Transformation and Innovation Officer and Physician-in-Chief for Primary Care and Urgent Care at Southcoast Health. “I’m very proud to be a part of an organization with both the commitment and capability to succeed through innovation.”

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.

“As we continue to implement new technology into our model of care, we recognize advances spurred by the pandemic such as telehealth appointments are a big part of this. We learned a lot about how to use these tools throughout that time, and these advancements are continuing to change how we provide care,” said Feen.
