2016 HIMSS Davies Award winner North York General Hospital engaged its clinicians in a carefully managed process to create a library of over 350 electronic order sets, during which evidence was carefully integrated into all clinical content and workflows. The result was broad and deep adoption, evidenced by a dramatic increase in order set use, and a corresponding significant decrease in the probability of inpatient death from pneumonia or exacerbation of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).
