TAMPA, Fla.-- (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Doctors' Administrative Solutions, LLC (DAS) has been recognized for its outstanding work in the Tampa Bay area as a finalist for the Excellence in IT Leadership Award by IT Florida. This award recognizes outstanding businesses and initiatives for exceptional leadership in furthering the use of technology to promote economic, social or technological development in the state of Florida.
DAS provides people-based technology solutions for physician practices through products, services and the creation of a connected healthcare community. Implementing technology in a way never before done, DAS is actively working to improve the epidemic of administrative healthcare errors by establishing a connected healthcare community in the Tampa Bay area. Over five million patient visits per year are represented by early physician registrants of the initiative, each with the potential for costly or even fatal administrative errors.
This endeavor was kick-started months ago with a $3 million software grant which DAS secured on behalf of the Tampa Bay community. This grant is putting Electronic Health Record software in the hands of area physicians to promote and enable connectivity. As the local champion for the Tampa Bay community, DAS was able to generate widespread support from local, state, and national politicians from both sides of the aisle, high profile community business leaders, hospitals, labs, imaging centers, and pharmacies.
IT Florida serves the state as an umbrella organization, comprised of both public and private technology leaders; and advocates for sound public policy to the Governor, the Legislature, and Enterprise Florida on technology issues and initiatives.
