The award recognizes healthcare CEOs who demonstrate leadership and a commitment to using information technology to advance their organizations’ goals.

Modern Healthcare and HIMSS announced the seventh annual CEO IT Achievement Award competition on Nov. 10, 2008, and the deadline for submissions was Dec. 19, 2008. The judges evaluated the nominations in January with the three winners determined on Jan. 12.
