HAYS, Kansas – Alan Wamser, IT Manager, was recently awarded HaysMed’s quarterly Associate Spirit Award. The Associate Spirit Award recognizes an outstanding Associate who has gone above and beyond their daily job duties to care for a patient, visitor or Associate at HaysMed, part of The University of Kansas Health System.
Wamser went above and beyond when the HaysMed Foundation needed to move existing data from an old database to a new cloud based solution. On his own personal time he wrote a program that pulled the nearly 2000 files from the old database, assigned them to the correct donor record and pulled them into a format that could be used to import into the new database. The solution saved the foundation countless hours of manual labor moving information from one database to another with the added benefit of eliminating any errors in aligning the data.
Wamser was awarded the traveling “Associate Spirit Stick”, $50 in chamber checks, and his own Associate Spirit Award parking spot for 90 days.
