REVIEWER: Kevin Mackey, manager of data services, Children’s Hospital & Medical Center in Omaha.

BACKGROUND: Children's Hospital & Medical Center of Omaha - a 144-bed nonprofit organization and the only full-service pediatric specialty health care center in Nebraska - has cared for children since 1948. In addition to pediatric primary care, patients are referred from throughout the region for the treatment of complex or unusual diseases. No child in need of medical care is ever turned away because of an inability to pay. The hospital is also the primary teaching site for the family practice and joint pediatric residency programs at Creighton University and the University of Nebraska Medical Center. The integration of IT solutions has long been an organizational priority at Children’s, leading to recognition as a “Most Wired” hospital two consecutive years by Hospitals and Health Networks, the journal of the American Hospital Association. Children’s also was recognized as a 2007 InfoWorld 100 Award recipient for demonstrating innovative use of cutting-edge technologies to enhance project goals and services.
