Recognizing that true innovation is a team effort, the award honors teams of healthcare professionals who have demonstrated innovation in the application of clinical informatics. AMIA partnered with SSi-SEARCH to establish the award in 2014 and, based on the quality of submissions and the positive response from the clinical community, decided to make it an annual event.
The 2014 winning team was from Cathay General Hospital in Taipei, which shared how they had reengineered the entire chemotherapy medication process using a mobile device for nurses.
