Virtua has been recognized by the College of Healthcare Information Management Executives (CHIME) as the ‘Most Wired’ health organization for the fifth straight year.
The Marlton, NJ-based hospital received this ranking due to their leadership in the use of information technology (IT) to improve healthcare. The CHIME Most Wired program identifies practices and promotes the strategic use of healthcare IT.
“Having the right information at the right time is increasingly essential in healthcare,” said Tom Gordon, Virtua’s Senior Vice President and Chief Information Officer. “Virtua’s continuing designation as a Most Wired health organization shows another important way we’re committed to enhancing patient care, and to supporting our clinicians in the vital work they do each day.”
Virtua has focused on quality and patient satisfaction through their recent launch for an enhanced electronic medical recording (EMR) system called ONEVirtua. In 2016, Virtua Health and Aetna announced their collaboration to bring high-quality and affordable health care in New Jersey.
