MAYFIELD HEIGHTS, Ohio, Nov. 17 /PRNewswire/ -- Roswell Pediatric Center, a Noteworthy Medical Systems user, has captured the prestigious 2003 Nicholas E. Davies Award of Excellence in primary care, awarded by the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS). The Davies Award honors primary care practices that have most successfully implemented an electronic health record (EHR) into their practice. The practice must document substantial improvement in efficiency, quality, staff and patient satisfaction based on its use of the EHR in routine care and the operation of the practice.
Roswell Pediatric Center, with three locations in Atlanta, Georgia, demonstrated that after implementing Noteworthy Medical Systems' EHR, it had improved the quality of patient care, streamlined workflow, and reduced costs, according to Nancy Babbitt CMPE, Administrator of Roswell Pediatric Center.
Ms. Babbitt stressed that among the requirements for a successful EHR implementation are staff acceptance and ease of use, and the need for a well- defined implementation plan. And although economic benefits were considered secondary to the goals of improving workflow, communication, and patient care, the practice has realized significant economic gains.
The incorporation of an EHR into everyday patient care places Roswell Pediatric Center in an elite group of healthcare organizations. It is estimated that only four percent of physicians in the U.S. are currently utilizing EHR technology. Ms. Babbitt concluded, "Roswell is an EHR success." Winning the 2003 Davies Award confirms this assessment, and Noteworthy Medical Systems is proud to have played a significant role in this accomplishment.
