William Davis, MD, a Family Medicine physician was honored at this week at the Cerner Physician Conference in Kansas City with a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Cerner Corporation.
Dr. Davis was instrumental in developing an advanced electronic medical records system to improve patient care, quality and safety.

In addition to caring for patients, he devoted countless hours to working with staff to develop the electronic infrastructure required for safer, higher-quality, more efficient care.
