Union Hospital in Terre Haute, Indiana, has been named the winner of the sixth annual Nursing IT Innovation Award, which is co-sponsored by Health Data Management.  The hospital's winning project involved a touch screen documentation system that led to measured improvements in the timeliness of charting and other quality improvements. The "PICASO" system also automatically generates care plans. The hospital developed the technology in conjunction with Innovative Workflow Technologies.

The second place winner is Winchester (Virginia) Medical Center for a pain management project utilizing interactive patient technology, from GetWellNetwork.  Sinai Hospital of Baltimore won third place for its project involving an electronic alcohol withdrawal protocol, which runs on a Cerner platform.
