Date:9/28/2010

OSSINING, N.Y., Sept. 28 /PRNewswire/ -- Open Door Family Medical Centers (http://opendoormedical.org) a federally qualified community health center providing quality health care to the under-served, uninsured and underinsured residents of Westchester County has received the HIMSS Community Health Davies Award For Excellence.  The national award recognizes excellence in the implementation and use of health information technology, specifically electronic health records (EHRs).

"The Davies Award is the highest recognition of excellence that a community health organization can receive for its EHR implementation and use. Open Door is a deserving recipient of the Davies. The medical center staff has shown leadership, vision and enthusiasm in its EHR implementation. They offer a model for community health centers across the country," said Margaret F. Schulte, DBA, FACHE, CPHIMS, Instructor, Masters of Science in Medical Informatics, Northwestern University.

"Open Door has been highly innovative in our use of electronic information systems to improve the community's health.  We have developed clinical decision support systems used at the point of care and we use patient registries to prevent patients from falling through the cracks.  We mine our data routinely to be sure we are consistently delivering the best, evidence-based care. I think everyone should expect this same level of attention from their health care provider and we at Open Door look forward to setting new standards for our industry," commented Lindsay Farrell, Open Door's President and CEO.
