Greenberg Prize awarded to Dr. Joseph G. Hayes

NEW YORK (May 10, 2007) -- An esteemed cardiologist and pioneering advocate for the benefits of information technology in medicine, Dr. Joseph G. Hayes has been named the recipient of the 27th annual Maurice R. Greenberg Distinguished Service Award, the highest honor bestowed by NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical Center on a member of its professional staff.

The award, which recognizes Dr. Hayes' 44 years of outstanding service to NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital and Weill Cornell Medical College, consists of a $50,000 grant made possible through an endowment from Maurice R. Greenberg. The formal award presentation was made at a gala dinner on May 3 at the Pierre Hotel.

Dr. Hayes is the Herbert J. and Ann L. Siegel Distinguished Professor of Clinical Medicine and associate dean of billing compliance at Weill Cornell Medical College and medical director of clinical information systems and attending physician at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell.

"In addition to serving our medical center as an outstanding and dedicated cardiologist for more than four decades, Dr. Hayes played an instrumental role in implementing one of the nation's first electronic medical systems, helping to improve quality and safety for our patients," says Dr. Herbert Pardes, president and CEO of NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital. "Thanks to his pioneering efforts, we remain a model for organizations leveraging the power of information technology in health care."

Beginning in the mid-1990s, Dr. Hayes led the team that installed Eclipsys, the inpatient electronic medical record system that links clinical data from disparate areas such as from the laboratory, radiology, pharmacy and billing.

"Dr. Hayes is also a superlative teacher, greatly revered by residents, medical students and colleagues -- as evidenced by his numerous awards in this area," says Dr. Antonio M. Gotto Jr., the Stephen and Suzanne Weiss Dean of Weill Cornel
