As this health system continues to expand, we remain committed to providing the best quality of care through continuous implementation of technology infrastructure advancements and updates to medical software systems so that we can continue to serve the PIH Health community.”
Among the more than 55,000 facilities represented, PIH Health 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 healthcare organizations at all stages of development, from early development to industry leading.
“We are proud to recognize PIH Health’s exceptional dedication to digital health excellence,” said CHIME President and CEO Russell P. Branzell. “Their pioneering performance in the industry not only inspires other organizations by example, but also provides patients around the world with better care.”
