San Diego Union-Tribune

Press Ganey, known for its patient-satisfaction surveys, Tuesday named Scripps Health Chief Executive Chris Van Gorder as winner of its 2013 innovation award. The firm, which made the award at its annual conference in Orlando, Fla., cited the executive’s work to build better case management teams at Scripps hospitals. The teams, which include case managers and pharmacists, follow up with patients after they leave the hospital to make sure they are taking their medications and are making follow-up appointments.
