HIMSS Davies Awards Recognize Achievement in Health IT

September 19, 2007 - The Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) has announced the recipients of the 2007 Nicholas E. Davies Awards of Excellence in the Organizational, Ambulatory and Public Health categories.

The recipients of the 2007 Davies Awards are:
Organizational/Allina Hospitals & Clinics, Minneapolis, MN.: This health system includes 11 hospitals and 65 clinics, an operation that serves Minnesota and western Wisconsin. With its vision four years ago as “One Patient, One Record,” the Allina system shares patient health information among its sites through its extensive EHR and revenue cycle design.

Ambulatory:
Valdez Family Clinic, San Antonio, TX: Valdez Family Clinic is a solo-practitioner operation serving an economically disadvantaged and medically underserved community. The practice of Alicia Valdez, MD, achieving real-time data capture of data, diagnosis, orders and plans at the point of care, has decreased her average time spent per patient note from 10 to two minutes. The electronic health record enables this physician to efficiently provide care to seven exam rooms all in a four-day work week.

Village Health Partners (formerly Family Medical Specialists of Texas): Now an eight-physician practice in Plano, TX, this family practice in a suburban community was founded in 2001 by Christopher Crow MD, MBA and Sander Gothard MD. The EHR was implemented in 2003. The group is building a medical village with the goal to improve their lives and their patients' by creating a one-stop shopping medical experience.

Public Health:
Illinois-National Electronic Disease Surveillance System (I-NEDSS), Springfield, IL.: I-NEDSS is a Web-based application used by all 95 local health departments in Illinois and by health care providers and laboratory staff throughout Illinois to report and investigate infectious disease conditions, clusters and outbreaks. The I-NEDSS system has significantly increased monitoring of disease occurrences, trends and outbreaks leading to earlier event detection.

Institute for Family Health, New York City: The Institute for Family Health operates 15 community health centers, two school-based health centers, a counseling center, and eight part-time clinics that serve the homeless, providing services to minority, uninsured and disadvantaged communities throughout the Bronx, Manhattan and the Hudson Valley. All of these practices are federally qualified health centers. The Institute implemented a fully integrated EMR in 2002 with four public health initiatives to improve health care delivered to the community. With an emphasis on prevention, chronic disease management and the elimination of health disparities, the Institute has partnered with the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene to demonstrate the impact that an EMR system can have on public health.

Each of these recipients will present their stories at the 2008 Annual HIMSS Conference & Exhibition.
