In 1994, the Computer-based Patient Record Institute founded the Davies Awards of Excellence and managed the program until merging with the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) in 2004. The award showcases institutions—ranging from big city hospitals to small ambulatory clinics—that have done an exceptional job implementing electronic medical records/electronic health records (EMR-EHRs) in their facilities.
Most of the information used in the series of HIMSS white papers that form the basis of this executive summary derives from the award applications of the 2001 to 2005 Davies winners. The papers focus on four topics related to the institutions' EMR-EHR experiences: return on investment (ROI), leadership, implementation and ambulatory practices. The first three papers deal with larger hospital settings, while the last examines ambulatory practices.
