The Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society and our members are pleased once again to congratulate the recipients of the CEO IT Achievement Award. This years three honorees are:
It is remarkable to think about the diligence and direction these three individuals provided as they, with their employees, implemented health information technology to ensure quality patient care in an efficient and effective manner. Their efforts exemplify the spirit and determination needed to embark on this transition from paper to digital health records.
Each of the 2007 award recipients manage large healthcare organizations recognized for the breadth of their operations and the quality of care they provide. Their catalytic achievements offer a valuable review of the interoperable electronic health record in action. With the implementation of technology, these health systems serve as success stories for the industry and for others who are in, or want to explore, the process of transitioning from paper to digital health records.
The 2007 CEO IT Achievement Award recipients will be honored at a breakfast presentation on June 26 at HIMSS Summit07 in San Diego. After the presentation, the recipients will serve as keynote panelists at the opening session and present their perspectives on health IT.
