Modern Healthcare's Top 25 Clinical Informaticists recognition program recognizes medical professionals who excel at using patient-care data to improve the clinical and financial performance of their healthcare organizations.
How the Top 25 were chosen
Among the titles of these medical professionals are chief medical information or informatics officer, or CMIO; chief health information or informatics officer, or CHIO; director of clinical information or informatics, or DCI; and medical director of information or informatics systems, or MDIS. The program is not limited to those titles.
To select honorees for the second annual listing of the Top 25 Clinical Informaticists, done in partnership with the Association of Medical Directors of Information Systems, the magazine issued a call for nominations on July 11. The nomination deadline was Aug. 19. Readers submitted a total of 38 nominations.
An editorial review board consisting of senior editors at Modern Healthcare reviewed the nominations and judged the candidates on the following three criteria. Whether the nominee:
- Successfully used patient-care data to improve his or her organization's clinical and financial performance.
- Demonstrated a willingness to share expertise with others in the field of clinical informatics.
- Assumed a leadership position in clinical informatics outside of the candidate's own organization or company.
The review board made its final decisions on the Top 25 on Sept. 9 and recipients were notified Sept. 12 and 13. The final list appears in this issue in alphabetical order. Per editorial policy, award sponsors are not involved in the nomination or submission process nor the judging or determination of recipients.
