NGHS named one of country's top technology innovators

By Staff
GAINESVILLE - Northeast Georgia Health System (NGHS) is on the InformationWeek 500, an annual listing of the nation's most innovative users of business information technology (IT), for the second year in a row. The annual list was revealed recently at a gala awards ceremony at the InformationWeek 500 Conference in California.

Northeast Georgia Health System recently designed and implemented a Virtual Data Warehouse to address the increased need for up-to-date data to drive decision-making. This strategy allows NGHS to use medical data and patient records across the entire organization to make quality decisions faster, which in turn increases patient safety and enhances patient satisfaction. For example, NGHS is able to use its Virtual Data Warehouse to provide data to support improvements to patient flow through operating rooms. By having key performance information immediately available, surgery team members are able to improve processes to ensure optimal patient flow in surgery.

"Northeast Georgia Health System is honored to be recognized for the second year in a row for our commitment to innovations in IT," says Carol Burrell, President and CEO of NGHS. "Our new Virtual Data Warehouse allows us to provide valuable information to our physicians, clinical and operational support staff faster than before
