    Memorial Hermann Healthcare System’s “MEDSAFE Project” Awarded PMI - Houston Project of the Quarter - 3Q11

    The PMI Houston chapter honoured Memorial Hermann Healthcare System with the Project of the Quarter in
    recognition for its MEDSAFE Project. Denise Rancour, PMP, led the project in support of Memorial Hermann’s quality
    strategy to “do no harm”. MEDSAFE provides a bar code confirmation of medications against a verified physician’s order at the patient’s bedside completing the three sides of positive confirmation: provider, patient and medication.
    MEDSAFE was a collaborative effort among Nursing, Pharmacy Operations, Respiratory Service, Information Technology and System Pharmacy to reduce, if not eliminate, medication errors by implementing an Automated Medication Administration System centered at the point of care.

    The team award was presented at the chapter’s monthly meeting held on December 7, 2011 at the HESS Club. Ms.
    Rancour accepted the award and spoke to the audience about the project's challenges, successes, and the value it
    brings not only to Memorial Hermann but to the community being served.

    Chevron's "Reservoir Information Management" Awarded PMI-Houston Project of the Quarter – 2Q10

    PMI Houston is pleased to award Chevron Mid-Continent Alaska with the Project of the Quarter in recognition for its “Reservoir Information Management” (RIM) program. RIM is an IT program managed by Ashish Trivedi with the goal of defining, developing and sustaining the information derived over the last 60 years from the Mid-Continent Alaska’s reservoir. RIM provided new processes, technology, and a governance model to reach and sustain its objectives. Mr. Trivedi and his team focused on four types of data that the reservoir community uses for key workflows: well master data, pressure survey data, rock and fluid data, and production injection data. They defined where the data should reside and what system of record would be the repository. The project succeeded where others had failed because of the team’s disciplined focus on scope and stakeholder involvement. The RIM program serves over 2,000 Chevron users throughout the world, not just in North America (mostly engineers, earth scientists, and technical staff).

    The award was presented to the Chevron team at PMI Galleria Chapter meeting on May 12th. Mr. Trivedi accepted the award and spoke to the audience about the value of persistence, teamwork, and stripping a project's scope and objectives to its most fundamental components.
