Digital Health Most Wired survey

The annual CHIME Digital Health Most Wired (DHMW) survey is a significant digital health “north star” that healthcare organizations (HCOs) have relied upon for years. Reflecting the digital profiles of approximately 40% of U.S. hospitals, the array of HCOs included in the 2023 DHMW survey is representative of the known US Health System landscape.

Acceleration of data usage

In a digital health world shaped by Meaningful Use, HCOs have largely moved on from focusing on their data capture and storage capabilities to improving outcomes. In this environment, leveraging data emerges as a critical activity in the realization of improved operational and clinical outcomes. This “acceleration of data usage” was evident in all eight sections of the survey and is integral to Digital Transformation — bringing together the right technologies and quality data to develop digital tools that improve operations, workflows, staff and patient experience, and patient health care and outcomes.

Digital Transformation Priorities Segment Trends Report

To help make sense of the findings on Digital Transformation Priorities in the 2023 DHMW survey and how this fits the current state of digital transformation in healthcare, CHIME offers this “deeper dive” into three broad issues covered in this section: Setting digital transformation priorities, assessing digital transformation progression, and managing digital transformation. DHMW discovered several action items for HCOs to consider, such as: setting parameters for what digital transformation means to their organization, developing strategies and priorities around specific goals and user needs, tracking progress based on the strategies and evolving market trends, and managing transformation progress by working together with leadership, workforce, vendor partners and other stakeholders.

  • Security is a top concern this coming year, as is the funding to support necessary security upgrades.
  • Mobile technology is dominating consumers’ lives and is a huge opportunity area for HCOs to boost not only patient but also workforce experience and satisfaction.
  • Small and medium HCOs lag larger HCOs on digital transformation progress, especially relative to the latest mobile and smart technologies.
  • Budget and cultural issues continue to limit HCOs’ digital transformation progress.
