healthsystemCIO.com® to Provide Insight for CIOs

Guerra at Work_webNEW YORK, January 19, 2010 — healthsystemCIO.com was launched today with the goal of becoming the premier news and opinion Web site for healthcare CIOs. Through news, interviews and guest blogs, the site will cover timely and relevant topics, including the evolution of meaningful use and EMR certification under HITECH, best practices around physician engagement under the Stark relaxations, and both intra- and inter-facility system integration. Anthony Guerra, former editor-in-chief of Healthcare Informatics magazine and a leading journalist covering healthcare IT, will serve as editor of healthsystemCIO.com. 

“I couldn’t be more excited about starting healthsystemCIO.com,” said Guerra. “After having interviewed nearly 100 CIOs during the last four years, I know my readers well, so I will do the heavy lifting of sorting through all the noise and delivering only the most critical information.”

Core to the site’s content will be Guerra’s well-known one-on-one interviews. “I renew my offer to interview any hospital/health system CIO at any time, because everyone has something valuable to share,” said Guerra. “By bringing together all the little pearls of wisdom around the industry, we make the CIO job easier, and let each individual know their problems are faced by others.”

“I look forward to using healthsystemCIO.com as a much-needed tool to keep me informed in this rapidly evolving HITECH world,” said Linda Reed, VP & CIO of Atlantic Health. “Anthony Guerra did tremendous things with Healthcare Informatics, and I expect nothing less from him in this new venture,” added Reed, who also sits on the College of Healthcare Information Management Executives (CHIME) Board of Trustees and chairs the Membership Committee.

“I have worked with Anthony Guerra for years, and have no doubt healthsystemCIO.com will quickly become a must-read among my peers,” said Neal Ganguly, VP & CIO of CentraState Healthcare System in Freehold, N.J. “With all the people flooding into healthcare after HITECH, finding trusted sources of information can be a challenge. With Guerra behind healthsystemCIO.com, the trust factor is there on day one,” added Ganguly, who is also a board member (and past President) at the NJ Chapter of HIMSS.

“Guerra’s spot-on with the relevant information from morning till night on Twitter. There’s little chance he’ll miss any breaking news,” says Steve Huffman, VP and CIO at Memorial Health System, South Bend, Ind.

“With the regulatory landscape changing so quickly, I look forwarding to using this CIO-focused resource,” said Scott MacLean, CIO of Newton-Wellesley Hospital and a Corporate Director in Partners Healthcare. “Many sites and magazines are quite broad, forcing CIOs to sift through mountains of content to find relevant items. Visiting healthsystemCIO.com will be an efficient use of my valuable time,” added MacLean, who was recently elected to the HIMSS Board.  

Readers can sign up for the site’s complimentary weekly e-newsletter and comment on postings. Coming soon, healthsystemCIO.com will launch its exclusive, “Content-First Continuing Education Webinar Series®.”

CIOs interested in being interviewed, or presenting in the “Content-First Continuing Education Webinar Series,” should email Anthony Guerra at aguerra@healthsystemCIO.com or call 201-638-2727.
