UMMC wins 2016 Intelligent Health Association Awards
Emily Sopensky, Chair of the Intelligent Health Association Awards Committee, interviews Dr. Colleen Driscoll, Neonatologist and Director of Quality Improvement for the NICU at University of Maryland Medical Center (UMMC) about winning The Intelligent Health Association (IHA) 2016 GRAND Award and the 2016 Improving Patient Care and Health Delivery Award.
The 2016 GRAND Award and the 2016 Improving Patient Care and Health Delivery Awards were awarded to the University of Maryland Medical Center (UMMC) (Baltimore, Maryland). During a move of the Drs. Rouben and Violet Jiji Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) to new quarters, hospital leadership began searching for a solution that would reliably deliver patient monitoring alarm notifications to caregivers’ mobile devices regardless of their locations. Also important to UMMC was finding a solution that enabled care team communication in a quiet manner—an alternative to traditional overhead paging. Selecting Extension Healthcare’s Engage™ Mobile platform with Zebra MC40 phones for the NICU, UMMC found the rate of compliance in communicating critical data increased dramatically. UMMC plans to roll out this solution throughout the entire medical center, with 772 total licensed beds, 8,261 employees, and 1,163 attending physicians/faculty. Receiving the award is Dr. Colleen Driscoll, Neonatologist and NICU Director of Quality Improvement.
