The College of Healthcare Information Management Executives (CHIME), has released their coveted Digital Health Most Wired Survey results for the 2022 data collection period. Franciscan Missionaries of Our Lady Health System (FMOLHS) is proud to announce its Level 8 achievement for both the Acute and Ambulatory survey selection.

FMOLHS includes Our Lady of the Angels Hospital in Bogalusa.

Among the more than 38,000 organizations surveyed by CHIME, FMOLHS ranked above peers in categories like analytics and data management, population health, infrastructure, and patient engagement. 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.

“We are proud to honor your team’s exceptional dedication to excellence in digital health,” said CHIME President and CEO Russell P. Branzell. “Your pioneering performance in the industry inspires other organizations by example. 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.”

The Digital Health Most Wired survey and recognition program serves as a comprehensive “Digital Health Check-up” for healthcare organizations across the world. As success in digital health increasingly determines 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.

“We are honored to once again be recognized as a leader in digital and information technologies,” said Chief Information Officer Avery Cloud. “We constantly strive to provide the highest level of care and experience for our patients while staying on the cutting edge of technology. This recognition validates the hard work that we have done to meet the ever-evolving needs of our patients and improve both operations and efficiencies for our healthcare system.”

This is the second year that FMOLHS has been recognized by CHIME with the Level 8 designation.
