UNC Health Care number 4 in Where to Work: Best Hospital IT Department rankings

Healthcare IT News recently published a list of its 2011 "Where to Work: Best Hospital IT Departments" and UNC Health Care ranks #4 on the list.

Congratulations to everyone in ISD who helped us achieve this honor!

This is Healthcare IT News' first-ever "Where To Work: BEST Hospital IT Departments." According to the website, the goal of the project was to determine which characteristics distinguish the best departments from all the rest. To do that, employees graded their IT departments across seven categories: day-to-day work, IT team, management, hospital leadership, workplace culture, training and development and compensation.

Here's what Healthcare IT News had to say about UNC:
"The IT department at UNC Health Care prides itself on cutting edge innovations and, most of all, teamwork. 'One of the reasons UNC Health Care is a great place to work is the commitment by employees to help the organization become one of the best learning/teaching hospitals in the country,' said CTO John Baba.

He explained how the organization developed its own EMR, and is one of the select group of hospitals in the country so far to achieve certification for meaningful use: 'It took all of IT to achieve this goal, and I was impressed with the commitment of the staff.'"
