ECRI Institute Announces 2013 Health Devices Achievement Award -- Call for Entries
Date:3/25/2013

ne.org/the_johns_hopkins_hospital/index.html">The Johns Hopkins Hospital, Baltimore, MD received the Health Devices Achievement Award for its comprehensive study of alarm desensitization, or "alarm fatigue," a complex and ongoing patient safety challenge.

"We are honored to receive this recognition from ECRI Institute," said Maria Cvach, RN , assistant director of nursing, clinical standards, The Johns Hopkins Hospital. "We're really pleased to be recognized for the work our team has done over the past six years to improve the management of physiological monitor alarms. These efforts have dramatically reduced the number of clinically insignificant alarms and we've created a safer and quieter environment for patients and their care providers."  

In 2011, Grand Ronde Hospital, a rural hospital in La Grande, OR, won the award for its groundbreaking telemedicine initiative. Douglas Romer , executive director, patient care services, said, "We are so honored to receive this recognition from ECRI Institute. It's great to be recognized for the work our team has done with our Telemedicine Program." Romer continued, "People in our rural community have had to travel great distances and incur significant expense to access specialty medical care. With telemedicine, our patients are able to receive that care right here at Grande Ronde Hospital, surrounded by their families and other local support systems."

Winners of the Health Devices Achievement Award range from rural hospitals to academic medical centers to large integrated health systems, with initiatives that touch a broad array of health technology issues. These include a groundbreaking total joint replacement registry, improving patient safety related to pediatric chest and abdominal x-rays, and human factors in the use of wireless telemetry.'/>"/>
