In my short time working as your CEO, I have constantly been impressed by the remarkable people who work at University Health Network and the remarkable things that we are accomplishing. So, it is always terrific when one of our great UHN groups is recognized by their peers as doing something truly outstanding.
Last night at the 2005 Canadian Information Productivity Award (CIPA) Ceremony held at the Westin Habourcastle, UHN was recognized for making a major impact on the way that patient care is delivered in Canadian hospitals. Our Shared Information Management Services (SIMS) Group won the Gold Level CIPA award in the Customer Care Category for the UHN MOEMAR Project. This Pan-Canadian, all information industry award was accepted by Dr. Michael Baker and Stephanie Saull-McCaig on behalf of UHN.
As most of you know, MOEMAR has changed the way that orders are entered and drugs are delivered across UHN. Instead of relying on paper, orders are now entered electronically and the drug administration record is also updated using the computerized systems. This project has been an huge change effort for SIMS. However, the change in the way we treat patients has also received terrific support from the entire organization, led by Drs. Michael Baker, Bryce Taylor and Mary Ferguson-Pare. MOEMAR represents a very significant step forward for patient safety at UHN. Although SIMS received a "technology" award last night, it was really the entire UHN enterprise that was being honoured for our commitment to better customer care. But that wasn't all!! Our very own Chief Information Officer Matt Anderson was also recipient of the 2005 Canada CIO of the year award! This prestigious honour by CIPA in association with CIO Canada magazine recognized Matt for being an exceptional leader who has made an outstanding difference in the advancement of e-Health...what we've known all along! Please join me in congratulating the extended MOEMAR team and Matt on these outstanding accomplishments!
