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.
Seeking to provide a range of perspectives to help the government address health IT needs, GAO has appointed several notable health IT leaders to its first Advisory Committee, including CIO Denni McColm.
