RIVERSIDE GETS HIGH GRADES

Riverside is pleased to announce that the College of Healthcare Information Management Executives awarded the health system with its 2019 Most Wired recognition as a certified level 8. Riverside is the only health system in Virginia to earn the Most Wired recognition for 15 straight years. Organizations achieving level 8 certification have deployed technologies and strategies to help them analyze their data and are starting to achieve meaningful clinical and efficiency outcomes. Some of these organizations, including Riverside, are experimenting with more advanced technologies, like telehealth, that expand access to care. Riverside patients can access their health record through MyChart, which gives them an ability to send secure messages to clinicians, read provider notes, access test results and request prescription refills. A total of 16,168 organizations were represented in the 2019 Most Wired program, which this year included three separate surveys which assessed the adoption, integration and impact of technologies in health care organizations at all stages of development, from early development to industry leading.
