Eastern Maine Medical Center, Cardiology Consultants of Philadelphia, and Columbia Basin Health Association are among the winners of the 2008 Davies Awards in the Organizational, Ambulatory and Community Health Organization categories, according to the Chicago-based Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS).

Eastern Maine was recognized for implementing an EHR system as part of its Patient First Initiatives Program, a tri-fold approach to delivering patient care by transforming care delivery, adopting a patient-focused culture and implementing a technology plan to support the care delivery process. EMMC’s use of data derived from its healthcare IT systems is a “shining example” of how to drive performance improvement, quality and improve care in response to state and national reporting requirements, according to HIMSS.
