The award was presented to Director Susan Raviv and members of a multidisciplinary team that included Steven Walter, Lori Jackson, Maryann Nelsson, Mukesh Rana, Tom Phinney, Linda Cote and Rachel Foley. A detailed project plan was developed to address the turnaround time on the annual volume of 260,000 reports. This team, in conjunction with medical staff, was able to decrease report turnaround time, retain dictation productivity and reduce overall costs 90 percent within six months of implementation.
