Bimal Desai, MD, MBI, Assistant Vice President and Chief Health Informatics Officer at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) was honored as the winner of this year's Healthcare Innovator award.

Bimal Desai, MD, MBI, Assistant Vice President and Chief Health Informatics Officer at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) was honored at the Philadelphia Alliance for Capital and Technologies (PACT) annual black-tie gala as the winner of this year's Healthcare Innovator award.

The award is given to a company, researcher, or investor who provides innovative solutions that have a positive impact on the quality, cost, and access to healthcare.

Dr. Desai and his team have taken on the challenge of better connecting our patients, doctors, and the CHOP Care Network through technology and innovations in telemedicine.

Under the direction of CHOP's president and CEO Madeline Bell, Dr. Desai helped create the Hospital's new Digital Health Program. Dr. Desai also co-founded Haystack Informatics, a company spun out of CHOP's "Open Canvas" innovation competition in 2014 which uses patients' electronic health records (EHR) and healthcare employees' patterns of behavior to protect patient privacy.
