The 2017 CHIME-HIMSS CIO of the Year Award went to someone who is just as involved with local, grassroots activity as he is with national policy issues: Randy McCleese, CIO at Methodist Hospital.
A number of health system leaders and vendor executives were recognized for their work in advancing the industry forward during the CHIME17 Fall Forum, including Chuck Christian, Gary Barnes, and Dana Sellers.
CHIME has elected three members to its Board of Trustees that “share a passion for thinking broadly about how health IT can improve care,” the organization said.
Although the keynotes and educational sessions offered valuable information about topics like population health and cybersecurity, the biggest benefit of events like NJ HIMSS comes in networking and “catch up with old friends.”
A longtime health IT advocate, Chuck Christian has been honored by CHIME with its Federal Public Policy Award for CIO Leadership.
