Do You Know a Healthcare Game Changer?
Modernizing Medicine's modmed Kiosk Receives the People's Choice Award at UX Awards 
Physician efficiency and patient empowerment focus of easy-to-use, interactive application

Specialty-specific health information technology leader, Modernizing Medicine, Inc. (based in Boca Raton), announced its modmed Kiosk solution has won the People's Choice Award at The 6th UX Awards Summit in Palo Alto, Calif. The Overall People's Choice Award is chosen by the UX Awards community as the overall favorite, based on highest average vote by popular vote. A native iPad application, modmed Kiosk is designed for patients to perform self-service tasks, such as completing patient intake forms, at the doctor's office. Kiosk is designed to empower providers to engage patients early on and directly involve them in their own care, reduce potential errors from illegible documentation while populating the patient's  electronic health record. Patients can tap through intuitive prompts on the iPad, allowing them to instantly access and update their personal, medical and pharmacy information rather than filling out cumbersome paperwork.

Nathan Cleaver, DO, Cleaver Dermatology shared, "modmed Kiosk is simple to use and has saved us between 10 to 15 minutes per new patient. Our medical staff can now focus on the patients and not on the paperwork."
Baptist Health South Florida Hospitals Receive National Recognition for Quality Surgical Care   
South Miami Hospital and Doctors Hospital, part of Baptist Health South Florida, are among 66 hospitals nationwide to be recognized by the American College of Surgeons for achieving meritorious outcomes for surgical patient care.
The American College of Surgeons' National Surgical Quality Improvement Program (ACS NSQIP) is the only nationally validated quality improvement program that measures and enhances the care of surgical patients. Under the voluntary program, hospitals are required to track the outcomes of inpatient and outpatient surgical procedures and collect data that directs improvements in patient safety and surgical care.
"The commitment to excellence from our highly talented teams of surgeons, nurses and surgical staff is the driver that allows us to continuously provide the best care for patients entrusted to us. The recognition from this outstanding program validates their dedication to delivering high quality care at Baptist Health South Florida hospitals," said Brian E. Keeley, president and CEO.
