As chair of CHIME’s certification committee, St. Vincent’s Health System SVP & CIO Tim Stettheimer, PhD, has been instrumental in developing the CIO-focused organization’s new CHCIO program. And as chair of CHIME’s Board of Trustees, he’s also been at the forefront of crafting the organization’s comment letters on the Meaningful Use and Certification NPRMs. But Stettheimer also has a pretty significant day job, also serving as regional CIO for St Vincent’s parent health system, Ascension Health. To learn more about the CHCIO test, as well as CHIME’s position on recent HITECH-related developments, healthsystemCIO.com editor Anthony Guerra recently caught up with Stettheimer.
