The Col­lege of Health­care In­for­ma­tion Man­age­ment Ex­ec­u­tives an­nounced this week that Boul­der Com­mu­nity Health has earned the 2020 CHIME Dig­i­tal Health Most Wired recognitio­n for both Foothills Hos­pi­tal and its physi­cian clin­ics.

“The Most Wired pro­gram el­e­vates the med­i­cal care and the health of com­mu­ni­ties around the world by en­cour­ag­ing the op­ti­mal use of in­for­ma­tion tech­nol­ogy,” Michael Jef­feries, BCH vice pres­i­dent and chief in­for­ma­tion of­fi­cer, said in a news re­lease. “The re­sults of the an­nual Most Wired survey im­prove pa­tient safety and out­comes by driv­ing change in the health-care IT in­dus­try.”

The re­lease cites in­vest­ments in IT in­fra­struc­ture, telemedici­ne and data an­a­lyt­ics as con­tribut­ing fac­tors in the “Most Wired” des­ig­na­tion.
