AVMC is dedicated to staying at the forefront and improving technology to provide the best patient care.

(LANCASTER, Calif., December 16, 2022) — The College of Healthcare Information Management Executives (CHIME), has released their coveted Digital Health Most Wired Survey results for the 2022 data collection period. Antelope Valley Medical Center (AVMC) is proud to announce their Level 7 achievement for the Acute survey selection.

Among the more than 38,000 organizations surveyed by CHIME, AVMC 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 health care organizations at all stages of development, from early development to industry leading.

“We are proud to honor your team’s exceptional dedication to excellence in digital health,” said CHIME President and CEO Russell P. Branzell. “Your pioneering performance in the industry inspires other organizations by example. Patients in communities around the world receive better care when you drive change through digital transformation, as you have proven through your success in this rigorous program.”

The Digital Health Most Wired survey and recognition program serves as a comprehensive “Digital Health Check-up” for healthcare organizations across the world. As success in digital health increasingly determines the quality of patient care, the scope of the CHIME Digital Health Most Wired survey reflects the progress of leading healthcare providers as they reinvent healthcare for a new century.

We are proud of this award, and of everyone involved that helped achieve this goal,” said AVMC CEO Edward Mirzabegian. “Our main objective is to be current with technological advancements that positively impact and improve patient care. We aim to stay at the frontline of clinical technology, security, and operational efficiencies to provide the best clinical care.”

Earlier this year, AVMC also received the HIMSS Electronic Medical Record Adoption Model (EMRAM) Stage 7 Validation for 2022. The HIMSS EMRAM is used to assess EMR implementation and adoption of the technology for hospitals and health systems globally, guiding the data-driven advancement of care in a health system’s acute or inpatient care facilities through EMR technology. The medical center uses several tools for its antimicrobial stewardship program allowing pharmacists to advance the appropriate use of antimicrobials to support their goals of reducing overall antibiotic use for non-bacterial diseases, optimizing antibiotic use for bacterial infections, and improving patient outcomes while eliminating unnecessary patient-care costs. Leveraging information digitally enhances patient safety and satisfaction by reducing errors in care, length of stay for patients, and duplicated care orders.
