Orlando Health, a not-for-profit healthcare organization headquartered in Orlando, Florida and that serves the southeastern United States, has again earned a prestigious Quality Award from the College of Healthcare Information Management Executives (CHIME). Announced on Oct. 6, the 2020 CHIME Digital Health Most Wired award recognizes the hospital system as a certified Level 8, which signals its commitment to integrate technology to benefit patients.

The CHIME Digital Health Most Wired program conducts the annual survey to assess how effectively healthcare organizations apply core and advanced technologies in their clinical and business programs to improve health and care in the communities they serve. This recent award is not the first for Orlando Health. The hospital system has been recognized by CHIME since 2018 and before that by the American Hospital Association, which previously administered the survey.

“We are thrilled to receive the CHIME HealthCare’s Most Wired and Quality Award once more, particularly with the new addition of the ambulatory assessment,” said Novlet Mattis, chief information officer at Orlando Health. “This award is a symbol of the ongoing investment made in technology to deliver on our goal to provide the highest quality of care for our patients.”

“Digital technology has been a driver of innovation in healthcare for many years now, but never to the degree that we saw in 2020 with the pandemic,” said CHIME President and CEO Russell P. Branzell.

In St. Cloud, the brand-new 50,000 sq. ft. Orlando Health Medical Pavilion has officially opened its walk-in clinic which is conveniently located within the heart of St. Cloud on the corner of US192 and Budinger Avenue.

The Walk-In Clinic, which is open 7 days a week, will be available to serve you when your primary care doctor is not available, or you need to be seen quickly by a healthcare provider.

The services offered in the medical pavilion are for non-emergent, acute-care medical problems that can develop unexpectedly and require immediate attention. This includes care for flu, infections, migraines, sprains, cuts, bruises, burns and minor illnesses as well as immunizations, physicals, and lab testing.
