Winner Announced for the Scot Stoney Award For Excellence
To honor Scot Stoney, a long time employee and major contributor to our company who passed away in 2008, we created the "Scot Stoney Award For Excellence." This award is presented annually, and given to the company, or individual within that company, that best exemplifies the spirit, passion, and innovation that Scot demonstrated throughout his life and his career with Select.
I am happy to announce that the 2011 winner of the Scot Stoney Award for Excellence is Memorial Hermann Healthcare System. Memorial Hermann is the largest not-for-profit healthcare system in Texas and serves the greater Houston community through 11hospitals, a vast network of affiliated physicians and numerous specialty programs and services. As the number of Memorial Hermann facilities has grown over the years, they have remained true to their founding mission of improving healthcare for the people of southeast Texas. Among their life-saving facilities are the Memorial Hermann-Texas Medical Center, the teaching hospital for The University of Texas Medical School at Houston,eight suburban hospitals, three premier Heart & Vascular Institutes, and TIRR Memorial Hermann, one of the nation’s top rehabilitation and research hospitals.
Wiith NOMAD, Raymond Lagman and his team developed a web-based Care Management Audit Risk System. The Audit Risk System keeps track of all Medicare cases that have been reviewed or will be reviewed by the Memorial Hermann Care Management team to better prepare for future audits from government contractors. Prior to the web based system, the Care Management team performed maintenance and updates to a home grown system which required attention from an FTE and was prone to data corruptions/losses due to system instabilities.
With UltraQuest, they built a web interface for the application by customizing code generated by the WEBMAINT tool. They generated a number of customized reports with UltraQuest off a separate reporting database. They also built a web page form that emails report results because the users wanted the option to share audit results via an email attachment.
This web-based Care Management Audit Risk System improved data entry time by a magnitude of 15, eliminated data corruption errors, and allowed the FTE to handle department related tasks instead of IT related data extracts, loads, etc.
The solution is unique for Memorial Hermann as it was the first time NOMAD/UltraQuest was used as a single solution to address all customer needs which include data storage, database input, database reporting, customized database, customized reporting, customized input screens via web page, and automated updates.
As the third winner of this prestigious award, a plaque signifying this accomplishment will be given to Memorial Hermann Healthcare System. In addition, a significant donation in Scot's honor will be made in Memorial Hermann Healthcare's name to Swim Across the Sound, a charitable organization that provides a variety of services to cancer patients and their families.Congratulations to Memorial Hermann on a job well done!
