NEW YORK, April 29 Zanett and St. Vincent Health have been named as a finalist for the Mira Awards Program under the category of Healthcare Information Technology. Now in its 11th year, TechPoint's Mira Awards recognize the achievements of Indiana's outstanding technology performers and contributors, and focuses attention on the broader issue of the important role technology plays in Indiana's economy.
Zanett and St. Vincent Health have been nominated for their jointly developed Clinical Online Delivery System (CODS) software, which supports standardized, evidence-based order sets at the point of care, arming doctors and clinicians with critical information to improve medication safety and patient care. CODS was developed for hospitals without a fully implemented electronic medical record (EMR) system. It serves as a "bridge" strategy towards moving to CPOE (Computerized Physician Order Entry), an application that enables providers to enter medical orders into a computer system in an inpatient or ambulatory setting.
"Zanett is proud to be named a finalist for this prestigious award," said Vince Vickers, SVP of Healthcare Solutions for Zanett. "Through collaboration with St. Vincent Health, we have developed the CODS software to enable doctors and nurses to spend more time with patients and less time on the charting required of them in creating paper records. Applying clinical decision support at the point of care has proven to reduce medical errors, improve the quality of patient care, lower the cost of care and also lays the foundation for demonstrating 'meaningful use' of technology in the future."
The winners will be announced at the Mira Awards Gala, an "Oscars-style" award ceremony being held Saturday, May 15, at The Westin Indianapolis. TechPoint will again honor past Mira Award winners and finalists attending the ceremony with a special "Winner's Circle" reception.
