MountainView Hospital employee Joanne Orlando, RN, Director of Clinical Research was awarded the HCA Innovators Award, Financial Impact Category.

Orlando received the recognition at a ceremony in Nashville, at HCA headquarters, during an event that recognized all recipients of the 2015 HCA Awards of Distinction. The HCA Awards of Distinction include the Frist Humanitarian Award, the HCA Innovators Award and the HCA Excellence in Nursing Award, and are the highest honors that HCA bestows on employees, physicians and volunteers.

Orlando received the award for her idea and implementation of using The Crimson™ Technology Suite, through the Advisory Board, to create customized dashboards and scorecards for individual performance and diagnosis. That idea then won in the Innovators Award, Financial Impact category for all of HCA.

“Looking at problems differently has always been my passion,” Orlando said. “In this case, I used the data to help physicians to not only work more efficiently, but to improve clinical outcomes.”

HCA was created through the vision of founders, Dr. Thomas F. Frist, Sr., Jack Massey and Dr. Thomas "Tommy" Frist, Jr., and more than 45 years later, the company continues to invent and develop systems to advance health and patient care, in large part due to ideas from employees.

The HCA Innovators Award, established in 2010, continues the tradition of recognizing innovative thinkers with ideas that improve patient quality, service or the financial impact of operations.

“MountainView Hospital has a culture of embracing new and innovative ideas to improve patient care,” said Chris Mowan, MountainView Hospital CEO. “Congratulations to Joanne for taking an idea, implementing it and demonstrating that what seem like small ideas can make a huge impact.”

This is the third national MountainView Hospital awardee to receive an Innovators Award in as many years.
