HHS innovation program winners announced
The six winners include the Food and Drug Administration, which created a web-based tracking tool; the National Library of Medicine, which made its MedLinePlus service linkable to electronic health records and personal health records; and the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, which developed MONAHRQ, a free software application intended to help organizations set up healthcare quality reporting websites.
“Only innovation and a welcoming attitude to new ideas will enable HHS and its partners to succeed in today's challenging environment,” HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius said in a news release.
This is the program's second round of winners, chosen from nearly 90 candidates, according to HHS. The first six honorees were announced in August 2010. Round three will begin in May with a call for nominations.
