Don Detmer, M.D., receives 2010 Morris F. Collen Award
Date:11/12/2010

"Clinical informaticsor the meaningful use of electronic health records is not just a nice idea. It's essential if you are going to be able to deliver first-rate care," said Dr. Detmer. "The amount of knowledge needed is so great that unless you have a relationship with a computer, you're just not going to get the job done. The beauty of electronic health records is they give you a way to analyze not just one patient, but all patients who have similar disorders and characteristics. From this you can learn new research, how you are doing in terms of the care you are giving, and also gain immediate decision support," he explained.

The U.S. government also believes in the importance of informatics and electronic health records. It has set aside $19 billion to fortify and promote informatics so that doctors across the country can start to adopt the technology in a meaningful way.

This award is named after informatics pioneer, Morris F. Collen, MD, a founding physician of one of America's most outstanding health management organizations, Kaiser Permanente.

Dr. Collen realized the importance of electronic health records as far back as the late 1940s, even before the advent of computers as they are known today.

"Morrie Collen helped Kaiser and the Kaiser Shipyards during World War II do a better job of taking care of pneumonia patients and he started keeping patient records. He started screening patients, and he also started doing preventive medicine, and he made medical informatics practical and useful," Dr. Detmer said.

Dr. Detmer's bibliography is extensive and spans a number of fields relating to healthcare management, surgery, and information policy. His contribution to the field as a visionary leader was further punctuated by AMIA's establishment of the Don Eugene Detmer Award for Health Policy Contributions in Informatics.
