Health Quality Innovators of the Year: Health IT

October 18, 2017

On Monday, HQI announced the recipients of our inaugural Health Quality Innovators of the Year Awards. Today, we are profiling Central Virginia Health Services, the awardee for our Health IT category.

Central Virginia Health Services (CVHS) is leveraging their electronic health record (EHR) dashboard to coordinate care across 18 facilities and ensure patients receive the services they need to stay healthy and manage chronic conditions. The dashboard alerts providers when a patient is due for a diabetic foot exam, a colonoscopy or other important service.

In addition, CVHS has invested in their rural locations to overcome connectivity issues and adapted technology to provide patients with inter-facility referrals for medications, dental services, mental health care and other important patient services. Finally, CVHS is using the data gathered in the EHR to identify clinicians who score lower on performance measures and connect them with one-on-one coaching.

Note: We did not receive any nominations from Maryland health care organizations.
