Hawai'i Pacific Health earns HIMSS Davies Award

For the second time, Honolulu-based Hawai'i Pacific Health was named a 2016 HIMSS Enterprise Davies Award recipient. The award honors the health system for exemplary use of health IT to improve patient outcomes while achieving a return on investment.

The health system is the second two-time winner of a Davies Enterprise Award of Excellence.

For this year's award, the health system submitted three case studies outlining its use of IT. HPH reduced length of stay for diabetic patients by implementing a computer-directed insulin dosing system, reduced length of stay for sepsis patients by developing sets and alerts using best practices and created a data warehouse and leveraged its EHR to drive metrics to improve population health management and generate $6 million in additional income.

"HPH is receiving the Davies Award from HIMSS for their work in reducing sepsis mortality and length of stay (and saving nearly 300 lives), significantly improving population health outcomes and patient access, and reducing complications due to hypoglycemia through the use of health IT," said Jonathan French, director of health information systems, HIMSS North America.
