Mhs's staff of experienced information technology professionals is on the cutting edge of medical and business technology.

Senior leadershipguided by the values of Memorial Health System, senior leadership is responsible for strategic planning, prioritizing among competing issues and engaging in dialogue and decision-making that will enable Memorial Health System to achieve its mission (to improve the Health of the people and communities we serve), its vision (to be the Health System people choose over all others) and its strategic goals (great colleagues, great partners, great access, great experience, and great results).in fy2019, mhs senior leadership refreshed and updated mhs's strategic plan, 5 year goals and measures of success to reflect emerging priorities related to Health reform, quality improvement, population Health, care coordination and the results of our comprehensive community Health needs assessment. This updated strategic plan served Memorial Health System well throughout the covid-19 pandemic and was a catalyst for managing and responding to the pandemic in a coordinated, systemized fashion. Leadership was able to respond efficiently and effectively in a dynamic, ever- changing environment as the covid-19 pandemic evolved. While many priorities and initiatives had to be put on pause due to the covid-19 pandemic, Memorial Health System made great progress in integrating a new affiliate hospital, decatur Memorial hospital, in fy2020. In addition, the leadership team executed the Health System strategic and fiscal year action plans (as adjusted due to the covid-19 pandemic) and reported results to its board. Fy2020 was characterized by meeting the demands of the covid-19 pandemic, including preparing for a surge of patients forecasted to overwhelm Illinois hospitals critical care capacity by april, 2020. Utilizing methods drawn from its successful lean six sigma program and allocated via a hospital incident command structure, Memorial Health System developed a phased regional action plan known as the acute respiratory care (arch) model. Arch allocated patient referrals, resources, and protocol through six phases of pandemic intensity across the System's five regional hospital campuses as well as its ambulatory care sites. In this way, patient surge (which did materialize by november-december to place 180 covid-19-positive inpatients at once in our hospitals) was "load balanced" so that constrained resources (manpower, material, machine) were conserved as regional capabilities were enhanced and best-practice learning shared. The arch model, revised seven times during the past 14 months, allowed mhs to appropriately care for approximately 22% of covid-19 inpatients in our four other hospitals beyond our tertiary academic hospital in springfield to allow other critically ill patients with stroke, trauma, and cancer to be served in unique specialty programs there. Such methods, replicated across our five central Illinois hospitals, drove a reduction of mortality in the sickest covid-19 patients even as their number peaked at the height of the pandemic.
