Dr. James O'Connell Named J.H. Kanter Prize Laureate
Date:8/11/2009

Awarded $100,000 for Enhancing Health Care Delivery

Four Practicing Physicians Named Runners-Up, also Awarded Cash Prizes

WASHINGTON, Aug. 11 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Dr. James O'Connell of Boston has been awarded the prestigious J.H. Kanter Prize for his exceptional work to enhance health care delivery for hundreds of low income and homeless people in Boston.

The inaugural prize, named for Joseph H. Kanter, a pioneering advocate for electronic medical records, is sponsored by the Health Legacy Partnership (HELP) a public private partnership with the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ.) Dr. O'Connell will receive a $100,000 award to help continue his amazing work.

Dr. O'Connell is President of Boston's 'Health Care for the Homeless' and on the front lines in his service to the poor. Often referred to as a "street doctor," he created a model of healthcare for the homeless, bringing care to them where they reside: on the street. He established integrated relationships with Boston area hospitals so patients typically arrive with medical charts and have received enhanced outpatient strategies prior to acute hospitalization. Dr. O'Connell designed and implemented a medical records system for the care of homeless patients and authored books on care of the homeless.

"Through the profound example of his daily commitment, Jim (O'Connell) gently nudges us to re-examine the fundamental questions of human existence. How do we live the ordinary life extraordinarily well," said Dr. Howard Koh, Harvard School of Public Health.

Dr. O'Connell, selected from more than 50 practicing physicians submitted from around the nation, military and US territories, was nominated by the Massachusetts Medical Society which receives $10,000 for nominating him.
