Entries are now being accepted for the second annual “Health I.T. Young Bloods” contest sponsored by Health Data Management. Submissions are due by noon central, Friday, May 31, 2012. The contest recognizes the technology accomplishments of clinicians, administrators and I.T. staff in the health care industry. Staff members age 35 years or younger who work for health care delivery systems, physician group practices, health plans, government or regulatory agencies, member associations and data exchanges are eligible (employees of I.T. software, services and consulting firms are not eligible). The program honors up and coming staff whose work has benefited their organization in a demonstrable way.

The Health I.T. Young Bloods program recognizes innovation, accomplishment, and creativity in the deployment and application of health care-related applications and information systems. Judges will evaluate candidates based on their contributions to any number of I.T.-related areas, including clinical documentation, financial management and organizational operations. For example: leadership in a group practice adoption of an EHR; development of a help desk or training curriculum for an information system deployment; customized use of an I.T. system at the department level; volunteer leadership work on a community data exchange; leadership of an association committee championing data standards.
