Stanford, Calif. – Stanford Children’s Health and Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital Stanford has earned 2019 CHIME HealthCare’s Most Wired recognition as a certified level 9 from the College of Healthcare Information Management Executives (CHIME). The Most Wired program conducts an annual survey to assess how effectively health care organizations apply core and advanced technologies in their clinical and business programs to improve health and care in their communities. This is the fifth straight year that Stanford Children’s Health has received the Most Wired designation.

“We are honored to receive CHIME’s Most Wired Performance Excellence Award in recognition of our development and leverage of health IT toward advancing care for expectant mothers and children,” said Stanford Children’s Health chief information officer Ed Kopetsky. He noted that the survey and award highlight the organization’s efforts to innovate and improve quality across the care continuum, “including increasing patient access, and evolving analytics and virtual care capabilities to improve care for patients and families.”

More than 16,000 organizations were represented in the 2019 Most Wired program. 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. The survey’s scoring system includes Most Wired certification at a level (up to 10) that reflects an organization’s overall performance.
