CHOC Recognized for Use of Health Information Technology to Advance Safe, Quality Care

CHOC recently became the first children’s hospital on the West Coast-and only third in the nation- to receive the Enterprise Davies Award from the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS). The honor recognizes CHOC for its design and use of health information technology to advance outstanding achievements in patient care.

In this podcast, Dr. William Feaster, chief medical information officer, and Dr. James Cappon, chief quality officer, highlight some of CHOC’s investments in health information technology and the impact these investments have had on patient safety. From an electronic medical record-enabled early warning system that has helped close to 400 children avoid resuscitation, with potentially as many lives saved, to breastmilk barcoding to eliminate feedings of the wrong breast milk, CHOC has experienced measurable improvements from its efforts.

Listen to learn how CHOC is making kids’ care better – kids’ lives better – through the use of technology.
