DrFirst Recognizes Healthcare Orgs for Excellence in Using Technology to Improve Care Collaboration, Interoperability, Efficiency and Patient Outcomes


Second Annual Healthiverse Heroes Awardees Honored for Breaking Through Information Silos

Health technology pioneer DrFirst today announced the winners of its Healthiverse Heroes Award, which honors organizations for using technology in innovative ways to break through the information silos that get in the way of clinical collaboration and patient care.

“The resilience, dedication, and grit exhibited by healthcare organizations throughout the COVID-19 pandemic are an inspiration to all of us,” said G. Cameron Deemer, president of DrFirst. “It is our privilege to recognize the 2022 Healthiverse Heroes Award winners for their commitment to using technology in innovative ways to transform healthcare collaboration during these challenging times. Their achievements are creating a more responsive and efficient healthcare system for the future.”

The Healthiverse Heroes Award recognizes healthcare organizations that have made significant achievements in uniting the Healthiverse, a term DrFirst coined to represent its vision for connecting people at touchpoints of care with the information they need when they need it.

Winners were selected based on multiple criteria, including innovative use of technology, level of impact, and effectiveness in breaking through information silos to improve care collaboration, interoperability, and patient outcomes. Nominees were judged by DrFirst’s clinical team, led by its chief medical officer and representatives with backgrounds in medicine, nursing, emergency medical services, and pharmacy.
