George Reynolds, M.D., discusses how dashboards allowed his hospital to get a handle on data

In this first part of a two-part podcast, George Reynolds, M.D., CIO and CMIO of Children’s Hospital & Medical Center in Omaha, Neb., and first place winner of the 2011 Healthcare Informatics Innovator Award, discusses the genesis of the idea of using dashboards to drive quality, and its enthusiastic uptake by clinicians, as well as financial and operational professionals. This podcast gives a foretaste of the panel, “Beyond the Data Warehouse: Strategizing the Use and Analysis of Clinical Data for Meaningful Use” at the Healthcare Informatics Executive Summit, which will be held May 6 through the 8 in Orlando. Dr. Reynolds will be joined on the panel by Rick Schooler, vice president and CIO of Orlando Health; Bobbie Byrne, M.D., vice president of IT of Edward Hospital; and Patricia Skarulis, vice president, Information Systems and CIO, Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center.
