St. Clair Hospital Named A ‘Most Wired’ Hospital
PITTSBURGH, Pa. – St. Clair Hospital has been named a Level 8 Most Wired hospital in the College of Healthcare Information Management Executives’ (CHIME) 2019 Most Wired Survey. A Level 8 designation highlights hospitals that have deployed technologies and strategies (e.g., population health/cost-of-care analytics, HIEs/integration engines, and patient portals) to help them analyze their data and are achieving meaningful clinical and efficiency outcomes.
More than 16,100 organizations were represented in this year’s Most Wired program, which included three separate surveys. The surveys assessed the adoption, integration and impact of technologies in health care organizations at all stages of development, from early development to industry leading. Based on survey responses, each participating organization received an overall score plus scores for individual levels in eight segments: infrastructure; security; business/disaster recover; administrative/supply chain; analytics/data management; interoperability/population health; patient engagement; and clinical quality/safety. Those earning Levels 8-10 are being honored with awards.
Other hospitals designated Level 8 include Duke University Health System, North Carolina; Mount Sinai Health System, New York; Stanford Health Care, California; University of Pennsylvania Health System, Pennsylvania; and Yale New Haven Health System, Connecticut.
