Tower Health recognized for its digital offerings
The College of Healthcare Information Management Executives (CHIME), has released its Digital Health Most Wired Survey results for 2022. Tower Health has been named to the list — receiving a Level 7 achievement for Acute and Ambulatory facilities.
The survey assessed the adoption, integration, and impact of technologies in health care organizations at all stages of development — from early development to industry leading, according to a press release.
More than 38,000 organizations were surveyed by CHIME for this year’s listing. Tower Health ranked above peers in several categories including analytics and data management, population health, infrastructure, and patient engagement.
“By enhancing our virtual offerings, Tower Health is able to ensure the members of our community have more convenient access to healthcare when and where they need it,” Michelle Trupp, senior vice president and chief information officer at Tower Health, said in a statement.
The Digital Health Most Wired survey and recognition program serves as a comprehensive “digital health check-up” for healthcare organizations across the world, according to the College of Healthcare Information Management Executives.
“As success in digital health increasingly drives 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,” the release stated.
In recognizing Tower Health’s achievement, CHIME President and CEO Russell P. Branzell said the healthcare provider’s “pioneering performance” in the industry is inspiring other organizations.
“Patients in communities around the world receive better care when you drive change through digital transformation, as you have proven through your success in this rigorous program,” Branzell, said in a statement.
