Phoenix Children's Hospital CIO David Higginson received the College of Healthcare Information Management Executive's 2016 Innovator of the Year Award.

CHIME, in particular, recognized Phoenix Children's Hospital's Lean IT initiative, which leverages data analytics and other advanced IT solutions. Innovations born out of the Lean IT initiative include customizable iPads in patient rooms that let patients access their clinical results, discharge instructions and educational resources.

"Our success is simple. We keep the patients' highest need first and foremost and that keeps us motivated to negotiate better deals on what we have to buy, or find creative ways to accomplish a better result using different products and tools," said Mr. Higginson in a statement.

Mr. Higginson received the award at CHIME16 Fall CIO Forum, held from Nov. 1 to Nov. 4, 2016, in Phoenix.
