Damo Consulting, a leading digital transformation advisory firm for healthcare, announced its inaugural DigiMTM Digital Maturity Momentum Awards program winners. Geisinger Health, Providence Health, and Northwell Health were named industry leaders for overall maturity and momentum in digital transformation among health systems.
The Digital Maturity Momentum Awards are based on Damo’s DigiMTM 4-stage maturity framework that is used extensively by health systems looking to assess their maturity and benchmark themselves against peers.
“We were thrilled with the strong response from health systems across the country,” said Paddy Padmanabhan, founder and CEO of Damo Consulting. “We couldn’t be more excited to name the award winners.”
“We are honored to be named an overall leader in the Damo Digital Maturity Awards program. The award is a recognition for the significant achievements and positive outcomes that we have made in digitally enabling our consumer, clinical and employee experiences,” said Emily Kagan Trenchard, senior vice president, chief consumer digital solutions, Northwell Health. “Digital maturity is not the job of only one team in an organization. It’s a cultural shift made possible by the work of many hands—not all of them tech folks—across the care continuum. And as is true within our health systems, so too is this the way of digital transformation for the American healthcare landscape: growth made possible by an ecosystem of providers and partner organizations across the country who motivate and inspire one another’s evolution,”
Karen Murphy, EVP and chief innovation and digital transformation officer at Geisinger Health, stated, “Geisinger’s dedicated Digital Strategy, along with our continued investment in developing our digital infrastructure and implementing digital-first consumer experiences, help further our ongoing commitment to making better health easy.”
Chief Strategy and Digital Officer at Providence, Sara Vaezy added, “Digital is the mechanism by which we can deliver high-value care at scale—supporting our promise to ‘know me, care for me, ease my way.’ We do this by enabling self-service, by co-developing new digitally enabled business and care/operating models—and we do this in a way that better serves our communities and caregivers.”
In addition to the overall industry leaders, the program named several health systems to the Honor Roll: Intermountain Healthcare, SCL Health, Virtua Health, Sentara Health, University of Rochester Medical Center, and MediSys.
“In addition to overall maturity and momentum, we recognized health systems for individual excellence awards in consumer digital and technology innovation. We’ve also included smaller health systems in the recognition program, acknowledging the remarkable progress made by these systems with fewer resources than some larger systems,” added Padmanabhan.
Tarun Kapoor, M.D, chief digital transformation officer, Virtua Health, stated, “We are grateful for the DigiMTM Honor Roll recognition. Firstly, it’s a moment to celebrate the accomplishments across our organization over the past 18 months. Additionally, it’s an opportunity to benchmark ourselves amongst the best of the best and that allows us to focus on how to become even better.”
“We are pleased to be recognized in the Damo Digital Maturity Momentum Awards program. Digital transformation is a complex, multi-year effort that requires leadership commitment and a coordinated effort among several stakeholder groups. At Sentara, we have built a strong technology foundation for the transformation and are on our way to build best-in-class experiences for our members and patients. We have benefited from the peer group evaluation provided by the maturity assessment, and the benchmarks will enable us to set our digital priorities for the coming year,” said SVP & Enterprise Chief Information Officer, Sentara Health, Tim Skeen.
The benchmark data from the assessments act as a guide to digital health and technology investment priorities. An independent advisory panel of senior healthcare executives advised and guided the Awards program.
