NYU Langone earns HIMSS Enterprise Davies Award

The Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society selected New York City-based NYU Langone Health as a recipient of its 2017 HIMSS Enterprise Davies Award.

Launched in 1994, the HIMSS Enterprise Davies Award recognizes hospitals and health systems for "excellence in health information technology," with a focus on those that have applied technology to improve patient outcomes.

NYU Langone officials credited the health system's IT success to initiatives like its paperless registration project. The project moved registration paperwork onto tablets, which patients can review and sign electronically. The project reportedly saved NYU Langone an estimated 800 days of registration time for patients.

"Our goal has always been to create a seamless patient experience across the institution's complex network of facilities and locations and securely manage volumes of health records," said Nader Mherabi, senior vice president, vice dean and CIO of NYU Langone. "We're proud that the hard work we've put towards improving patient care has been recognized through this prestigious award."
