Judy Murphy, IT leader


Judy Murphy symbolizes the perseverance needed by clinical IT advocates. Trained as a nurse, Murphy serves as vice president of information services at Milwaukee's Aurora Health Care, a 14-hospital health system that began its EMR odyssey nearly a decade ago. In addition to barcoded patient wristbands, Aurora has implemented systems that handle results reporting, nursing documentation and medication administration across all 14 hospitals. The system is making headway on computerized physician order entry, which is live in two hospitals. An employed group of 680 physicians rely on an integrated electronic chart. And Aurora is eyeing an EMR for its affiliated physicians. Logging 12-hour days is routine for Murphy, a down-to-earth manager who exudes enthusiasm over IT's potential. "This journey has taken longer than anyone expected," she says. "But we really can make a difference in patient care with automation." A well-known speaker at IT trade shows, Murphy has spread that message throughout the industry. "I feel committed to my colleagues doing the same kind of work," she explains. "This work is way too hard to do it from scratch." Murphy cites improved patient care as her second big motivator. Her mantra: The industry needs to remove the "mystique" around clinical and financial documentation that clouds the patient experience. "When a patient checks in, they need to know what is covered. The computer is an enabler to demystify the patient experience."
