The result is a more complete and accessible patient record.

CEO Michael Oister, which coordinates Camp Invention. "We are honored to work with Lexmark Healthcare to offer scholarships to future innovators. Together with our extraordinary partners, Camp Invention will set a precedent that inspiration and innovation are not limited by age or generation so that we can continue to help drive the progression of our nation."
"Today's children are tomorrow's healthcare and technology problem solvers," said Reynolds C. Bish, vice president, Lexmark and president, Lexmark Enterprise Software. "Experiences that foster innovation, creativity, self-esteem, teamwork, persistence and goal-setting will better equip them to make a difference in their communities and workplaces. Many of the children at Camp Invention could not participate without the generosity of individuals and companies. We are pleased to invite RSNA attendees to join us in supporting Camp Invention enrichment programs."
