Nicklaus Children's Hospital Wins DNV GL Healthcare's Innovation of the Year Award
Miami based Nicklaus Children's Hospital has been awarded DNV GL Healthcare's Innovation of the Year award for the development and implementation of an automated crash cart management solution that has dramatically enhanced patient care and efficiency at the 309-bed freestanding children's hospital and its network of outpatient centers.

The value of checking crash carts extends beyond compliance with regulatory standards. As a healthcare organization, having life-saving equipment, medications and supplies in order and reviewed daily saves lives. This crash cart solution was born at Nicklaus Children's Hospital, through its continuous focus on leading industry innovation. This automated process was created with key stakeholders from multiple departments such as nursing, information technology, pharmacy and accreditation, in collaboration with Nesa Solutions, a leading provider of workflow automation and information management services.

"We are honored to be recognized by DNV GL, a national accreditation body, for our digitalization efforts and commitment to patient safety," said Jose Perdomo, Nicklaus Children's Senior Vice President, Ethics & Compliance and Chief Privacy Officer. "This recognition exemplifies Nicklaus Children's Health System's commitment to utilizing the latest in leading-edge technology to improve healthcare practices and enhance safety for those in our care."
