Stanford Medicine wins 2nd Annual Pi2 Award for Provider Innovation in Informatics. Top award presented at the AMIA iHealth Clinical Informatics Conference.
Stanford Medicine captured the top spot and the Pi2 Award for Provider Innovation in Informatics at the AMIA iHealth Clinical Informatics Conference, May 28-29, Boston. The Pi2 Award (“The Pie Award” for short) was established in 2014 to highlight innovative work done by teams leveraging informatics in the healthcare provider environment and is supported by an educational grant from SSi-SEARCH.
The winning team takes home the honor as well as a monthly delivery of their favorite pie for a year. The award is an opportunity to celebrate the teams and individuals who innovate—and have fun doing it. Not to mention, enjoy some tasty pie in the process.
“The judges’ scoring was extremely close in the race for the top spot between Stanford and UPenn. After the presentation each finalist team said after they were sure the other team would win. It’s amazing how much effort people will go through for a year’s worth of free pie!” said Ross Martin, MD, MHA, Vice President of Business Development for AMIA. The outstanding finalists competing for the Pie Award follows:
