Texas Health Resources is ranked No. 62 on the 2011 InformationWeek 500 List of Top Technology Innovators Across America. Texas Health has appeared on the list for 11 consecutive years. Texas Health was further recognized for innovation for using “Best Practice” alerts in its electronic health record (EHR) to help reduce the risk of getting blood clots during hospital stays.

Texas Health Dallas on KKVI-FM

Dr. Jay Staub, an OB-GYN on the medical staff at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Dallas, was interviewed on KKVI-FM (95.9). Staub talked about the Sept. 27 screening of the movie Hot Flash Havoc, which will be hosted by Texas Health Dallas. In addition to addressing various female health topics, the movie challenges many of the conclusions of the Women’s Health Initiative, which doctors say falsely concluded that hormone replacement therapy causes an increase in heart disease, osteoporosis, and colorectal and breast cancer. Staub will be part of an expert panel discussion after the movie, taking questions from the audience and raising awareness of female health issues.
