Mi-Co honored innovative Mi-Forms users at the Awards Luncheon during the Mi-Co PartnerEd 2012 conference last week, for their use of iPads, Tablet PCs and other mobile devices that dramatically improved the business processes of their organizations.
The following awards were presented: Mi-Forms User of the Year to the NC Department of Agriculture & Consumer Services (Structural Pest Control & Pesticides division); Mi-Forms Impact Player of the Year to ECU School of Dental Medicine; Mi-Co Innovation Award to Children's Hospital Boston, and Mi-Forms Process Change Champion to Eli Lilly & Company.
Mi-Forms User of the Year awardee, the NCDA&CS Pesticides group has used Mi-Forms technology on Tablets to streamline a 3-4 week field inspection workflow to just 1 day, and has also 'gone green' by eliminating most paper-forms used in the process. Mi-Forms Impact Player of the Year ECU School of Dental Medicine uses Mi-Forms iPad e-Forms software for admissions committee decisions and student practical exams with a complex multi-stage workflow, across several hundred iPads. Children's Hospital Boston uses Tablets powered by Mi-Forms in their Audiology department, connected to audiology meters as well as their Cerner EMR system and saves 4 minutes per patient encounter as a result. And Eli Lilly uses Mi-Forms Tablet e-forms for Pharmaceutical QA inspection processes, replacing their earlier paper-forms process and boosting data accuracy by 98.8%.
This is the seventh year that Mi-Co has presented awards to organizations that have demonstrated innovation in the use of Tablets and other mobile devices for mobile data capture and process change. Past winners of Mi-Co Awards include representatives of the Internal Revenue Service, Sutter Health, Jackson Memorial Hospital, Cataler North America, the US Department of Agriculture, Boston Public Health Commission, and more.
According to Greg Clary, CEO, "With the proliferation of iPads, Android slates and other new Tablets like the Ricoh eQuill from Ricoh EWS and Windows 8 Tablets, Mi-Co expects to honor many more organizations in the years to come for their innovative use of Tablets to improve business processes."
