Guthrie’s Clinical EMR Team Wins Application Excellence Award

Nov 16, 2018

The Clinical Electronic Medical Record (EMR) Team at Guthrie was recently presented the Application Team Excellence Award from the Association for Executives in Healthcare Information Applications (AEHIA). The national award was announced on Nov. 1 at the AEHIA Fall Summit in San Diego.

The Guthrie team won this award for its use of three Epic tools to help identify features to improve clinical and financial outcomes. The team was able to use this information to help it apply best practices and target appropriate providers and workflows. They also updated their change management process to deliver enhancements every eight weeks.

The Application Team Excellence Award is designed to encourage and reward improvements in teamwork engagement and structure that benefit the organization.

Congratulations to Terri Couts, Vice President of Clinical Systems and team members Alison Bidlack, Cassie Coyle, Sara Eiklor, Sue Northrup, Lori Stevens and Gail Strausser.
