Dear Colleagues,

The UCSF IT leadership team and I want to extend a sincere congratulations to the three UCSF teams that received honorable mentions by the Larry L. Sautter Award for Innovation in Information Technology.

The awards, delivered at the UCSF-hosted University of California Computing Services Conference (UCCSC) this past August, included three UCSF collaborative patient care and technology teams whose work illustrates how information technology can drive innovative health care delivery.

Exclusive to the 10-campus UC-system, the Larry L. Sautter Award for Innovation in Information Technology was established in 2000 to encourage and recognize innovative deployment of information technology in support of the University’s mission. With more than a dozen submissions from across the UC system, the UC Office of the President (UCOP) and the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory this year, UCSF secured three honorable mentions which include:

Careweb Messenger Project

Raman Khanna, MD

Maureen Buick, RN, MS, Project Lead

To read about these fantastic projects visit the Larry L. Sautter homepage.

Because UCSF hosted the annual UC Computing Services Conference in August Sharecase will not occur this year. It will, however, return with a bang to UCSF in the fall of 2015. Stay tuned for more details and information next year.

Please join me in congratulating your colleagues.

Thank you all,
