We would like to congratulate University of Utah Health Care, Intermountain Healthcare, and Duke Health on being one of the four winners of the ONC Provider User Experience Challenge from the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC). The application was led by Dr. Kensaku Kawamoto, MD, PhD, MHS from the University of Utah.
