CHIME Launches New Health Technology to Boost Health Information Access

The technology will focus on delivering healthcare leaders better health information access involving topics such as artificial intelligence, machine learning, clinical care delivery, and patient engagement.

The College of Healthcare Information Management Executives (CHIME) recently announced the launch of its new health technology, Digital Health Insights, in an effort to increase health information access, according to a recent press release sent to journalists.

Digital Health Insights will aim to provide CHIME members with the latest resources on the most pressing healthcare issues to keep up with major shifts in healthcare delivery. The topics covered will include information on artificial intelligence and machine learning, clinical care delivery, cybersecurity, digital health leadership and transformation, patient engagement and experience, and virtual care.

“The launch of DHI this week is the latest CHIME initiative to bring new knowledge resources to even more healthcare industry leaders,” Steve Lieber, CHIME’s chief analytics officer, said in the press release. “Over the coming weeks and months, we will be launching additional tools that will give providers and solution companies insights, survey research data, and analysis from the world of digital health technology.”

Health leaders using the Digital Health Insights websites will receive access to tailored content on a weekly basis, the press release stated.

In addition, healthcare professionals are encouraged by CHIME to further discussions on the trending topics by enrolling in the Digital Health Community (DHC).

DHC offers users a secure environment to exchange ideas, solutions, and best practices on how healthcare organizations can succeed while driving digital transformation within their organizations, CHIME said. In addition, members of the platform can network with more than 84,000 professionals.

Digital Health Insights and its Digital Health will also offer members access to virtual fireside chats webinars, podcasts, exclusive access to articles, white papers, case studies, community network discussion opportunities, and research trend reports, CHIME stated.

CHIME also aims to help CHIME members improve on urgent issues like clinician satisfaction and patient care delivery. An announcement stated that CHIME partnered with health IT vendor DrFirst to help CIOs and CMIOs address interoperability challenges within their organizations.

Better care collaboration and medication management can help CIOs and CMIOs prevent readmissions and an in-workflow system can help them avoid clinician burnout, the announcement suggested..

Both organizations will collaborate on several initiatives to provide members with podcasts, educational webinars, thought leadership articles, white papers, and focus groups discussing areas of urgency for healthcare leaders such as reducing readmissions and increasing clinician satisfaction.
