CHIME Digital Health Most Wired

Stanford, Calif. – Stanford Medicine Children’s Health has earned the 2020 CHIME Digital Health Most Wired recognition from the College of Healthcare Information Management Executives (CHIME). The CHIME Digital Health Most Wired program conducts an annual survey to assess how effectively health care organizations apply core and advanced technologies into their clinical and business programs to improve health and care in their communities. This is the sixth straight year that Stanford Medicine Children’s Health has received the Most Wired designation.

“Digital technology has been a driver of innovation in health care for many years now, but never to the degree that we saw in 2020 with the pandemic,” said CHIME President and CEO Russell P. Branzell. “The Digital Health Most Wired program underscores why health care organizations keep pushing themselves to be digital leaders and shows what amazing feats they can achieve. This certification recognizes their exemplary performance in 2020.”

A total of 30,135 organizations were represented in the 2020 Digital Health Most Wired program, which included four separate surveys this year: domestic, ambulatory, long-term care and international. Stanford Medicine Children’s Health earned Performance Excellence Awards in two categories: Lucile Packard Children's Hospital Stanford was recognized by the domestic (acute) survey, and the Stanford Medicine Children’s Health network in the ambulatory survey. 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. Organizations receiving Performance Excellence Awards are leaders in health care technology who actively push the industry forward.

“We are honored to receive the CHIME Digital Health Most Wired Performance Excellence Award as we leverage digital transformation to innovate quality care,” said Stanford Medicine Children’s Health chief information officer Ed Kopetsky. “The awards highlight Stanford Medicine Children’s Health’s overall digital health advances, which support its research and discovery mission and advance care for expectant mothers and children.”
