The HIMSS Nicholas E. Davies award of Excellence recognizes those institutions that have made outstanding achievements by optimizing the use of information technology and the use of Electronic Health Records Management Systems to improve patients overall health outcomes through the implementation practices, strategies, workflow and patient engagement while maximizing the organizations return on investment. The award is named in honor of Dr. Nicholas E. Davies, MD, PhD who was a pioneer in the world of medicine and his first priority was to improve access to Healthcare in America through Information Technology, a true Physician Champion. Dr. Davies was killed in a commuter airline crash off the coast of Georgia in 1991.

This paper will highlight Cincinnati’s Children Hospital and Medical Center as they were the recipient of the 2003 Davies Enterprise / Organizational Award. “We fix smiles, we mend brains, we fight infections, we help families be brave, we help kids grow strong, we give them second chances and we celebrate when they say, ‘Look at me now!’” (CCHMC, 2003). I decided to focus my report on Cincinnati Children’s Hospital and Medical Center for my 5 year old Niece was in cancer treatment there in 2010, unfortunately she did not survive the treatments, however I learned so much from some of the staff and their new records management system, which they were at the time in a roll-out period of a new Electronic Records Management System, many had not had adequate training on the system and many of the staff, including the Physicians were a bit lost as to how to navigate. That was just during my visit, this paper will focus on the reason why they were selected for the Davies award in 2003.

The Medical Center began intergrading informatics in 2000 by adopting the Invision system manufactured by the Siemens Corporation. The strategic planning committee figured it would take a two year period to have the facility fully intergraded (CCHMC, 2003). The planning process was a huge and critical undertaking where they have 1,045 staffed Physicians, over 1,700 Nurses and thousands of Allied Health Professionals serving over 500,000 children, from around the world, every year. So the planning committee decided to intergrade the Six Sigma based approach which is to Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve and Control the planning process continually. In order to maintain a successful migration period the Planning Committee constructs a Project Risk Management design to follow 4 steps:

• Two teams of multidisciplinary ICIS users: COE Design Team and a Team of Physician Champions
• Hired a Consulting Firm
• Begin a Public Relations Campaign 13 months prior to Roll-Out
• Boost voluntary involvement to education of the system by other end users During that last 13 month period prior to Roll-out End User surveys were handed out to receive feedback (Positive and Negative) about the new system and to gain a better perspective as to the effectiveness to Department goals, to patient safety and care delivery Acute and Ambulatory. As with any system this step is vital for the organization to make sure they keep within set targets or continue to meet their Benchmarks.

As I conclude, it was interesting to know that while I was visiting my niece they were in a second Roll-out period for a newer system, now I understand what was happening and why the staff seemed confused as to the workings of the system. Everyone’s migration path is not the same and how each organization handles the Planning, Strategizing, Training, Certifying, Implementation and Support processes are so critical yet vastly different from organization to organization and their path to the success of an Electric Health Record Adoption Process.

...An inspiration. What is it you may ask? Well, to me an inspiration is something or someone you can look up to. An inspiration is someone who is worth a thousand words. An inspiration is someone who is a great role model for others. An inspiration is someone who has achieved a great number of goals. My list could go on and on, but what I am trying to get at is how Maya Angelou is my inspiration. She has achieved worldwide fame as a poet, author, actress, historian, civil rights activist, producer and director. She has published ten best selling books and numerous magazine articles, winning both the Pulitzer Prize and National Book Award nominations. Maya Angelou has also survived many hardships. She remembers the good times and the bad and writes about them both. Maya Angelou's sad life experiences inspired her to write works of poetry about herself.

Maya Angelou

...Maya Angelou is one of the most famous African-American women figures. As well as an inspiring figure as a poet, Maya is also well known to have been a great actress, educator, historian, author, playwright, director and producer ( At the time of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Maya was also inspired to become involved in the civil rights movement. Mary has many famous works; however she is very well-known for her autobiography: I know why the Caged Bird Sings. In that autobiography, Mary pours out the first seventeen years of her life, then writes about her years following in another autobiography.  Maya Angelou's former name was Marguerite Ann Johnson. Maya got the nickname from her older brother bailey, who had a speech issue and couldn't pronounce Marguerite. He started calling her Maya because he read a book on Mayan indians, and the name stuck ( Her parents divorced when she was only three years old, and she and her older brother Bailey were sent to live with their grandmother in Arkansas three years after Maya was born. Maya grew up in the south during a very racist period and the traditional african-american courtesy and respect . She had a hard young life, and writes in her autobiography, "I know why the caged bird sings" how she remembers being more literate than her own mother (Angelou 91). After living with her grandmother for a few years, which her and her brother would call "momma", Maya and Bailey......

...! ! ! ! There's so much technology and physicality to music – its a human thing. I'm blessed to have been born into an era where everything started evolving and I'm yet to see everything that does anything. Virtual machines that are able to manipulate our thoughts and inspire us to come up with new inventions everyday. Worlds greatest composers such as J S Bach , L V Beethoven, Mozart relied on the simplest system to compose the worlds greatest music from which the musicians in this era are inspired and influenced by. Even though a pencil and a paper was a bliss, musicians around the world today doesn't rely on it anymore. Ever since the birth of the computers the music industry has taken its strings to another level. Hollywood composers such as Hans Zimmer, Nick Glennie-Smith, and Brian Tyler has created the best scores that we have heard in the hollywood film and music industry today with computers and electronic hardware even-though The fact still remains the same. I couldn't agree more that the classical composers were more smart and had more original music than this era. What surprises me is that the living man with the most Oscar nominations, John Towner Williams (born February 8, 1932) an American composer, conductor and pianist who is considered one of the greatest film composers of all time. In a career spanning over six decades, he has composed some of the most popular and recognizable film scores in cinematic history such as Star Wars, Jaws , Super...

Audrey H

...Unicef saved Audrey Hepburn's life as a child in Holland at the end of the war just as it was going to save the Sudanese boy's life, and that is one reason why she is so proud to be a Unicef ambassador. It is the repaying of a very personal debt. But there is a deeper connection with the war years, one which brings her to London this week, not only to raise money for Unicef through public performance, but to pay tribute to the unquenchable spirit of the child in trouble through the life of one individual, Anne Frank. On Thursday, at the Barbican, Audrey Hepburn and Michael Tilson Thomas conducting the London Symphony Orchestra will be presenting their version of the life of Anne Frank through the words of her diary and Tilson Thomas's specially composed music. It is a project which has returned both Tilson Thomas and Audrey Hepburn to their own youth through their identification with the undisguised turbulence of Anne Frank's own adolescence, one in which every emotion was intensified by incarceration and fear of capture. This is powerful material enough, but for Hepburn the connection with Anne Frank is even more personal. When I met her to talk about it she was perched in a plush Claridges suite. I was expecting sophistication, elegance and a polished film-star performance. I had been told that she was every good thing from hard-working, generous and thoughtful to charming and downright divine. This undersold her, making her sound bland. The woman I met surprised me......

...No matter how you look at it, we have all been influenced by something. This something could be anything a person, place, or even a fictional character. In my case it was a fictional character. I loved batman when I was younger, I wanted to do what he did, talk like he did, eat what he ate, its a little weird but that is how I was influenced. A bigger influence would be the influence Martin Luther King Jr. had on Barack Obama. President Obama would say how large of an influence MLK had on him. Influence can be a small impact or a huge impact in someone’s life. We ourselves also make a huge impact on family, friends, and peers. Anyone that has a younger sibling has heard his or her parents say “Set a good example.” This is an example of influence we have on family members. We influence everyone around us. A person may think its cool or normal what you do so they follow what you do. Everyone is a role model in a way. We are influenced and we also influence and family is a huge part of that. Think about the group of friends that you hang out with. Now think of why you all are friends. There has to be a common denominator amongst yourselves to show why you all are friends. It could be you all listen to the same music, play the same sport, or act the same way. This is an influence. Everyone influences each other. We are all influential. This is why people say to surround yourself with good people because those people influence and impact your life. Usually......

My Mother

...Tamika Akins Gail Kerzner English 1010 10/8/2015 My mother, Evelyn, is your average woman who has a huge inspiration in my life. If it wasn’t for her I wouldn’t be the individual I am today. Her skin is a light brown tone similar to Mrs. Obama. She has short, curly black hair. Her aroma smells like floral fruity fragrance from the perfume Wings by Giorgio. Also, she wears prescription glasses over her small dark brown eyes. Her movement is an average pace, unless she’s in pain or is tired. She likes clothes that goes with the occasion. It could be fashionable or an informal attire. She dresses casually, usually wearing pant suits in different styles and colors. Her favorite pant suit is her pink suit with white stripes. My mother has a distinctive voice. One minute her voice is undemanding, and the next minute thunderous and terrifying. When she laughs or cries too hard she has back spasms. Old R&B music and gospel music are her favorite genres of music. Some of her favorite artists are: Babyface, Maria Carey, Tyrese, Toni Braxton, Patti Labelle, Kirk Franklin, and CeCe Winans. She dislikes country and rap music. Her appetite usually craves for seafood and a nice salad. She loves scampi, shrimp, and fish. Her favorite restaurant is Red Lobster, especially when they do their endless shrimp special. My mother is also a great cook. I love when she cooks her collard greens. The key to her collard greens is the seasoning accent, and......

Love Is Never Felt so Good

..."Love Never Felt So Good" is a song performed by American recording artist Michael Jackson, released posthumously on May 2, 2014. Two reworked versions of the 1983 demo track originally composed by Jackson and Canadian singer-songwriter Paul Anka form the first single released from Jackson's second posthumous album, Xscape. The first version is a solo produced by American record producer John McClain and Dutch record producer Giorgio Tuinfort. The second version is a duet featuring American recording artist Justin Timberlake, produced by American record producers Timbaland and Jerome "J-Roc" Harmon. It is the second collaboration between Jackson and Anka to be released since Jackson's 2009 death (the first being "This Is It"). The single charted on number 9 in the US and on number 8 in the UK. First worked on as a demo, Jackson co-produced the song during a 1983 recording session with Anka. The original version only featured Jackson's vocals, handclaps and a piano, played by Anka. In 1984, Anka sent the song to Johnny Mathis, who recorded a new version of the song with revised lyrics by Anka and Kathleen Wakefield.[3] Mathis' version made it on his 1984 album, A Special Part of Me. In 2006, Jackson's demo leaked online. During the 2013-2014 recording sessions for the Xscape album, the song was given a revision as a disco-sounding track. The first version, which only features Jackson, was produced by John McClain and Giorgio Tuinfort and was featured as the first track on the......

From 1986 to 1987 he was a session musician for the rock group Journey. Jackson played on Journey's 1986 album Raised on Radio.

In 1985, Keith Richards was asked to provide music for the Whoopi Goldberg comedy vehicle Jumpin' Jack Flash. Richards assembled an all-star band which included Aretha Franklin on piano and lead vocals and Jackson on bass guitar. This song was the fourth track on Aretha's 1986 album titled Aretha. Jackson can be seen in the song's video. In the late 1980s, Jackson was still doing sessions. He was notably on the first solo album by famed session guitarist Steve Lukather.

Maya Angelou

...Maya Angelou, born April 4th 1928, grew up with a lot of challenges she had to face in life. At a young age, her parents’ marriage was broken and she was forced to live with her grandmother. While living with her grandmother, she was faced with prejudice and racial discrimination. A few years later her father popped up in her life and sent her to live with her mother, where a couple of years went by and she was being abused by her mother’s boyfriend. Maya told her family and that man was put in jail for only one day. He was beaten to death a few days after being released from jail, which caused her to become mute for almost 5 years. I think that with everything Maya Angelou has been through, so far in her life, if she was not a strong enough person, she probably would have drowned herself in sorrow and punished herself for all that has happened in her life. Instead, she moved back to Stamps, where her grandmother lived, and began to meet with Ms. Bertha Flowers, who was a family friend and teacher. Ms. Flowers helped Maya with literature, art, and managed to help Maya find her voice again. When Maya hit thirteen years of age, she decided to reunite with her mother in San Francisco. She attended high school and worked very hard. She also received a scholarship to study dance and drama at the California Labor School. Maya had to drop out of high school to become San Francisco’s first female, African-American streetcar conductor. Finally, she returned to school, even though......

The Power of Freedom

...The Power of Freedom “Freedom is never voluntarily given by the oppressor; it must be demanded by the oppressed” (Martin Luther King Jr.). Just like Martin Luther King Jr. said people who faced oppression couldn’t wait around expecting to be given freedom. Instead, in order to earn it, they would need to fight and demand for it. The same ideas are portrayed through the writing of a fellow activist, Maya Angelou. In “I know why the caged bird sings” by Maya Angelou, the idea of freedom is explained through the use of metaphors and imagery. To begin, the metaphors used compare two perspectives of life. The poem itself is one large extended metaphor with other metaphors dispersed throughout. The main metaphor explains the lives of two barricaded races; “The caged bird” representing those who lacked freedom and “The free bird” representing those with freedom (Angelou). A caged bird could be a metaphor for any group of people facing oppression while the cage represents physical barriers. The freedom appointed to the free bird is opposite to that given to the caged bird. To show how the caged birds dealt with this segregation Angelou writes, “The caged bird sings/with fearful trill of the things unknown/but longed for still/and is tune is heard/on the distant hill for the caged bird/ sings of freedom” (Angelou). The caged birds “fearful trill” represents the bird’s worry that it will never have a chance to experience that same freedom. Though he’s fearful and his ambition is......

Lessons from Marie Angelou

...early life. In her famous quote, “You may not control all the events that happen to you, but you can decide not to be reduced by them.” The quote highlighted her tough side of life. This is especially her early life which was full of devastating violence. This is the time she worked as a streetcar conductor. It is the same era in which her friends Martin Luther King Jr. and Malcolm X were assassinated. But she fought back and rose to her feet. She wrote the poem, “Still Rise.” She engaged herself in almost all forms of arts. Her creativity was the driving force in her journey to stardom. She is a true picture of what it looks like to survive and flourish on a grind scale. Reference Agins, Donna Brown. Maya Angelou: A Biography of an Award-Winning Poet and Civil Rights Activist.
