BVHS receives Level 7 achievement in ‘Most Wired’ survey

Blanchard Valley Health System has received Level 7 achievement for the 2023 Acute survey selection in Digital Health Most Wired Survey results from the College of Healthcare Information Management Executives (CHIME). Awards are rated from levels 7-10.

The survey assessed the adoption, integration and impact of technologies in healthcare organizations at all stages of development, from early development to industry leading.

John Fenton, director of information services for BVHS, noted that the organization scored high in infrastructure and security. “We have safeguards in place to ensure we are protecting patient information,” Fenton said. “Cybersecurity is a concern in any field, but healthcare organizations must be particularly cognizant of the risk, since patient health information is particularly valuable to hackers. Just as patients need to feel sure that the medical care they’re receiving is safe, they also need to feel confident that their information is protected.”

Fenton said applying for the award also meant BVHS associates needed to document these processes, and one reason the organization wanted to apply was because that documentation also helps them gain insight into where they might continue to grow as they set future goals.

“And it’s not just an IT survey, but a survey that involves how technology is effectively used throughout the health system,” Fenton said. “Associates in several other departments were also an important part of this process.”
