Dr. Steven Davidson, chief medical information officer and former chair of emergency medicine at Maimonides Medical Center, has had many successes in medicine and health IT, but one project got stopped in its tracks.

The emergency department at Maimonides, a century-old, 705-bed academic medical center in Brooklyn, N.Y., with a history of technological innovation, turned on its electronic health record as planned, at 7:30 a.m. on a Tuesday. On Sept. 11, 2001. In New York.

"Of course, we turned it off at 9:10," Davidson recalled. He and his charges finally brought the system up for good in April 2002 after patient volumes returned to normal. It included a full EMR with computerized physician order entry, results reporting, and an electronic medication administration record.

"My history is as an innovator," Davidson said. That's clear from the foresight he had to ask Allscripts, Maimonides' EHR vendor, for a second site license so he could replicate the HealthMatics ED EHR to create a data warehouse that's being used for business intelligence and analytics reporting.
