Two New York healthcare systems, Maimonides Medical Center, Brooklyn, and Queens Health Network, are winners of the 2002 Nicholas E. Davies Award for achievements in implementing computerized patients records. Queens, which includes Elmhurst Hospital Center and Queens Hospital Center, is a member of the public New York City Health and Hospitals Corp. The award was established in 1995 by the Computer-based Patient Records Institute and taken over by the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society, Chicago, when it acquired the successor group of the CPRI in July. Projects at both systems began in 1996. -- by John Morrissey
