St. Luke's Hospital Recognized as a 'Most Wired' Organization

St. Luke's earned a Digital Health Certified Acute Level 7 ranking from CHIME Digital Health.
Chesterfield, Mo. , October 8, 2020
St. Luke’s Hospital has received special recognition for its commitment to healthcare information technology with a 2020 Digital Health Certified Acute Level 7 ranking in the College of Healthcare Information Management Executives’ (CHIME) Digital Health Most Wired listings. 

“St. Luke’s ‘Most Wired’ designation reflects the hard work and ability of our team to leverage information technology to improve the health of our patients and the community,” said Scott Holtswarth, St. Luke’s vice president and network chief information officer. “This year, more than ever before, our digital tools are enhancing the safe and convenient delivery of care to patients.” 

St. Luke’s has utilized multiple technologies to support the delivery of patient care including: the robust roll-out of telehealth and virtual visits during the COVID-19 pandemic, which at times allotted for 65 percent of the network’s total weekly visits; technology implementation and interoperability across St. Luke’s network allowing for one seamless patient record that medical staff, clinicians and patients can share, regardless of care location; and effectively analyzing data to continually improve patient outcomes in population health. 

CHIME, the professional organization for chief information officers and other healthcare IT leaders, conducts an annual survey to identify and recognize healthcare organizations that exemplify best practices through their adoption, implementation and use of information technology in eight areas: administrative/supply chain; analytics/data management; business/disaster recovery; clinical quality/safety; infrastructure; interoperability/population health; patient engagement; and security.

“Digital technology has been a driver of innovation in healthcare 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 healthcare organizations keep pushing themselves to be digital leaders and shows what amazing feats they can achieve. This certification recognizes their exemplary performance in 2020.”
