  “It is a true honor to accept this award. It would not have been possible without the guidance and opportunities provided by my director, Natalie Wilkerson,” said Hickey. “I, along with the wonderful team of individuals I work with, am truly dedicated to patient safety and the overall patient experience. We are committed to providing timely and accurate information to all staff members interacting with patients and their families. It is a privilege to come to Piedmont Henry and make a difference every day.” 

  Through the use of the patient management application created with Datawatch Corporation’s information optimization software, Piedmont Henry Hospital is able to access data which provides a complete understanding of the processes that impact a patient’s experience. With this information, Piedmont Henry has enhanced its ability to measure and improve patient experiences.

  “Ventana Research is proud to have selected Patricia Hickey and Piedmont Henry Hospital for this award, recognizing the innovative approach taken in using Datawatch’s Information Optimization platform to provide users across the hospital a more accurate and interactive view of patient information,” said Mark Smith, CEO and Chief Research Officer for Ventana Research.
