It doesn’t take an hour to get a strong message across, as was demonstrated when three influential CIOs took the stage during CHIME TED Talks and shared best practices in areas like innovation, security, and patient engagement.
Not only is it okay to stand on the shoulders of giants, but in today’s health IT world, it’s critical, says CHIME CIO Boot Camp instructor Chuck Christian, who shares the most valuable takeaways from the recent event.
Linda Hodges, a former executive search consultant who placed numerous CIOs, and Randy McCleese, who has been a leader in advocacy efforts, were among those recognized at the CHIME16 Fall Forum for their efforts in advancing the industry.
It may not always have been the hot topic on Capitol Hill, but these days, policymakers are very interested in health IT, says Leslie Krigstein, who talks about the key issues on CIOs’ minds, and how CHIME’s Public Policy team is looking to play more offense and less defense.
In a quarter of a century, CHIME has undergone several changes, but one thing has remained the same. The goal is to make everyone’s job a little less difficult by sharing best practices, says Russ Branzell, who reflects on how far the organization has come, and where it hopes to go.
