JOINT BASE SAN ANTONIO-FORT SAM HOUSTON, Texas –
Brooke Army Medical Center has once again been named one of the nation’s “Most Wired” medical facilities for its innovative use of health information technology by the College of Healthcare Information Management Executives.
The mission of the CHIME HealthCare’s Most Wired program is to elevate the health and healthcare of communities around the world through the optimal use of information technology. The annual survey is designed to identify and recognize healthcare organizations that exemplify best practices through their adoption, implementation, and use of information technology.
Each participant receives a benchmarking report that can be used to assess their current health IT program and develop health IT-based strategies to raise the quality of their healthcare organizations and consequently the quality of care in the industry as a whole. BAMC received special recognition for both acute and ambulatory submissions. U.S. Army Lt. Col. Chani Cordero, BAMC chief information officer, credits Information Management Division staff for helping to maintain this recognition for more than 10 years.
