CHIME has created, and is looking to fill, the new role of president and chief executive officer for CHIME, the CHIME Foundation, and the CHIME Education Foundation.
The new President and CEO will be an experienced healthcare CIO. “This individual will serve as ambassador for the CHIME organization and the HIT industry by speaking, writing, and prominently attending major functions to continually elevate CHIME’s national position as a formidable health industry association that leads the national transformation for HIT,” stated the organization.
Current CHIME President and CEO Rich Correll will become the organization’s chief operating officer. “I will be pleased to focus my attention in that area and to work with our staff in harnessing operations in support of the direction taken by the new CEO and the Board,” stated Correll.
The CHIME Board will begin a national search immediately with the goal of introducing the new president and CEO during the CHIME/HIMSS CIO Forum in March.
