The awards, which were announced at the 2014 HIMSS Annual Conference and Exhibition in Orlando, Fla., recognize health organizations and their technology solution partners for using Microsoft devices and services in innovative ways that help enhance the quality of patient care, improve clinician productivity and electronic medical record (EMR) optimization, and streamline clinical and business processes.
"We are honored to receive the Microsoft Health Users Group Innovation Award. Aspect's strategic vision and support during our Microsoft Dynamics CRM installation helped us fully realize the potential of the CRM software," says Michael Pistone, Marketing Manager for Cincinnati Children's Center for Technology Commercialization. "Today we have the technological infrastructure to identify and reach industry partners that are capable of advancing the innovations discovered at Cincinnati Children's.
