Applying for the Davies Award provided a framework to methodically document the processes involved in successfully implementing an EHR. Winning this prestigious award has validated all of Urban Health Plan’s hard work in caring for and improving the health of our patients.

“We found the Davies Award process to be valuable both on an internal and external level. The process made us pause and take a critical look at our objectives in deploying systems and how well we were meeting our original intent. The evaluation committee brought an experienced, broad perspective and raised questions for us to consider that led to additional improvement opportunities. The award gave us the chance to celebrate and recognize what we’ve accomplished. On an external level, the recognition from the award has connected us with similar organizations so that we can continue to learn from each other.”

“Winning the HIMSS award increased awareness of NC DETECT both within North Carolina and at a national level. After the award, we have been asked to present to Senate and White House biosurveillance staffers. We have also been asked to contribute a book chapter on biosurveillance in North Carolina for a homeland security book.”
