In keeping with its focus on continued professional development, CHIME has named Adrienne Edens, former CIO at Sutter Health Valley Area, as vice president of education services.
With content geared toward the special needs of CMIOs, CHIME offers those in the role an opportunity to strengthen their skillset, says George Reynolds, MD, who calls the course “a mini-MBA designed for the physician leader.”
HHS made a big move this week to beef up security efforts, naming two major health IT leaders to its Cybersecurity Task Force to help facilitate data sharing among healthcare organizations.
With technology advancing so rapidly, the need for collaboration among CIOs is higher than ever, says CHIME Board Chair Marc Probst, who talks about how he plans to leverage his new role to increase engagement and serve as a “cheerleader” for innovation.
Some of the most influential players in health IT – including EHR vendors, health systems, and organizations such as CHIME – have agreed to implement core principles to facilitate data sharing, according to HHS.
