When your mission is to drive change, there are inevitably going to be setbacks. What sets successful organizations apart, says CHIME CEO Russell Branzell, is the ability to stay the course and find a way to move forward.
CHIME has announced new officers for 2021, as well as four new members to its Board of Trustees: Sarah Richardson, Daniel Nigrin, George Hickman, and Ajay Kapare.
Unlike in years past, healthcare IT leaders now have access to some of the most influential rule makers and legislators, making it all the more critical to keep plugging away and “shoot for something better,” says CIO Michael Martz.
The most effective way for CIOs and other leaders to continue to drive for change in health IT policy? To share your stories, say Congress representatives Doris Matsui, Bill Johnson, and Bill Foster, who discussed their involvement in telehealth, patient matching, and other key areas.
As the CIO role becomes increasingly recognized as a “strategic partner who works across the healthcare system to improve health and care,” salaries are starting to reflect that, according to a recent CHIME survey.
