UPMC Wins Davies Award for Custom DWC Solution

CHP LogoPittsburgh, PA:  The Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC this week was named the 2015 HIMSS Enterprise Davies Award recipient for two innovative solutions designed and implemented by Data Warehouse Consultants. The Davies Awards program promotes electronic health record-enabled improvement in patient outcomes through sharing of case studies and lessons learned across a wide range of efforts, including implementation strategies, workflow design, best practice development and adherence, and patient engagement that have improved care outcomes for patients.

This specific solution that earned UPMC the awards was the CHP Pharmacy MedEx Mobile Application, which uses mobile technology to accurate track the delivery of pharmaceuticals within the hospital. A second contributing solution was the CHP Breastmilk-Tracking Mobile Application, which uses mobile technology to accurately match babies with their mother’s breastmilk in the Neonatal ICU.
