DLC Receives National Recognition
May 1st, 2014
DLC has been honored with the Chairman’s Award (2nd Place nationwide) for the 2014 Annual Negley Award theme “Management of Cyber Risk.” The purpose of the annual Negley Awards is to facilitate sharing and recognition of creative, high quality behavioral health care practices. The national awards program provided the Center a $5,000 cash grant for its outstanding achievements in cyber risk management strategies.
The submission was presented at the Mental Health Corporations of America’s Annual Conference in Clearwater by Faron Richards, Information Technology Director, and Sharie Boscaglia, Quality Improvement Director. Their presentation focused on the development of a risk analysis process that was implemented to assess and identify cyber risk and security of electronically transmitted, protected health information on a daily, monthly and yearly basis.
This is the fourth time the Center has been chosen as a Negley Award recipient since the program’s inception. In 2010, the Center won the Chairman’s Award for their theme of “Minimizing Medication Errors” and again in 2012 for “Keeping People Safe.” In 1991, the Center was the sole award winner of the first ever Negley Award.
