CIO magazine has named Texas Children’s Hospital a recipient of the 2011 CIO 100 award for exemplifying the highest level of operational and strategic excellence in information technology (IT). The 24th annual award program recognizes 100 organizations around the world that innovatively use IT to create business value.
“Texas Children’s Hospital is honored to be recognized by CIO magazine for our commitment to demonstrating excellence and achievement in IT,” says Myra Davis, vice president of Texas Children’s Information Services. “This award acknowledges our innovative approach to servicing the information management needs of Texas Children’s. I am grateful to our team of dedicated technology and business professionals for leveraging IT effectively to create value for our staff, patients and families.”
The CIO 100 award recognizes Texas Children’s commitment to providing a seamless communication platform for a highly mobile health care staff. Texas Children’s Information Services (IS) has made significant advances by adapting technology to support clinical workflows, including the implementation of kiosks and an integrated electronic medical records system. IS accomplished this goal by partnering with Voalté, a company that offers a unified communications solution enabling nurses and clinicians to use iPhones to make high-definition voice calls across the hospital’s VoIP (voice over Internet protocol) system, receive critical care alarms and send and receive presence-based text messages.
“This year’s CIO 100 awards draws well-deserved attention to companies that are not only innovating with IT but creating genuine business value as well,” says Maryfran Johnson, editor in chief of CIO magazine and events. “These winning companies and their IT organizations are an inspiration to businesses everywhere.”
The 2011 CIO 100 awards will be presented at The Broadmoor in Colorado Springs, Colo. Aug. 14-16 at the conclusion of the 16th annual CIO 100 Symposium and Awards Ceremony.
