Modern Healthcare is pleased to announce the recipients of this year's CEO IT Achievement Award, which is co-sponsored by the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society.
The 2012 winners are Dr. Steven Altschuler, CEO of The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia; Lynn Britton, president and CEO of Mercy in Chesterfield, Mo.; and Richard Miller, president and CEO of Virtua in Marlton, N.J.
The trio of executives brings to 26 the number of CEOs who have received the award, which was created in 2003.
The award recognizes healthcare CEOs who demonstrate leadership and a commitment to using information technology to advance their organizations' goals. A five-judge panel consisting of two CEOs chosen by Modern Healthcare and three chief information officers chosen by HIMSS selected Altschuler, Britton and Miller from a pool of 63 nominees.
