Seeking to provide a range of perspectives to help the government address health IT needs, GAO has appointed several notable health IT leaders to its first Advisory Committee, including CIO Denni McColm.
Hal Wolf, an experienced leader and longtime champion of consumer engagement, has been appointed president and CEO of HIMSS, succeeding Steve Lieber.
Health IT is not a one-size-fits-all industry, and so there’s no need for a one-size-fits-all CIO, says Marc Chasin, who talks about the two types of leaders he believes we’ll see going forward.
If you ask Steve Lieber what attracted him to HIMSS 17 years ago, it was the enormous potential it had to become an industry leader. What has kept him so long, however, has been the organization’s willingness to grow and evolve.
When you’re dealing with an explosion of data, it’s time to shift away from the “shipping and downloading model” and move to a more efficient system, says CIO Keith Perry.
