HIMSS Nicholas E Davies Award of Excellence

The Award honors Dr. Nicholas E. Davies, an Atlanta-based practicing physician, president-elect of the American College of Physicians, and a member of the Institute of Medicine Committee on Improving the Patient Record, when he tragically died in an airplane crash in 1991 with Senator John Tower. Dr. Davies was an accomplished physician who believed that the computer-based patient record was needed to improve patient care.

The program objectives are to:

  • Promote the vision of EHR systems through concrete examples
  • Understand and share documented value of EHR systems
  • Provide visibility and recognition for high-impact EHR systems
  • Share successful EHR implementation strategies
