The College of Healthcare Information Management Executives (CHIME) announced that CentraState Healthcare System, Freehold Township, has earned the 2019 CHIME Healthcare’s Most Wired recognition as a certified level 7. The Most Wired program conducts an annual survey to assess how effectively healthcare organizations apply core and advanced technologies into their clinical and business programs to improve health and care in their communities. CentraState has invested more than $160 million in health IT over the past several years as part of its ongoing commitment to enhance patient engagement and health data security. CentraState’s participation in the Most Wired process was a significant factor in being one of the first hospitals in the country to be recognized as a Meaningful User of Technology by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services since 2013. Health IT initiatives implemented at CentraState include computerized physician order entry, electronic medical records, medication bar-coding and medication reconciliation.
