March 9, 2017
Mark Weber, Senior Vice President, Healthcare Development
Becker’s Hospital Review recently released their list of 113 hospital and health system CIOs to know in 2017, and we’re proud to say that Infor works with 98 of the 113 CIOs and healthcare organizations on the list.
The list of CIOs was chosen based on nominations, with Becker’s Hospital Review editorial team selecting leaders based on research and discretion. These executives have earned their spot on this list because of their commitment to healthcare’s technology revolution. That revolution includes projects like overseeing EHR installations, developing new patient portals and pushing telemedicine advancements forward while working to keep data secure. They have also received awards and participated in organizations such as the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society and the College of Healthcare Information Management Executives.
Infor partners with CIO of the Year, Pam Arora at Children’s Health in Dallas
Pam Arora, SVP and CIO at Children’s Health in Dallas is recognized as the 2016 John E. Fall, Jr. CIO of the Year, which is sponsored by HIMSS and CHIME. The article from Healthcare IT News explains that this award recognizes healthcare IT CIOs who have made significant contributions to their organizations through the use of technology. Some of Arora’s accomplishments as CIO at Children’s include hosting electronic medical records for physician practices to form strong partnerships with regional health information exchange programs. A 2013 pilot with the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology, Children’s Health became one of the first hospitals to give parents full access to their children’s health information. She also helped form a telemedicine program that enables nurses at nearly 100 schools to conduct virtual consultations with hospital-based clinicians. She participates in the discussion of advancing health through the use of IT by serving on the CHIME and HITRUST board. Arora will receive her award at HIMSS Annual Conference & Exhibition in Orlando on February 21st, 2017.
All of these CIOs have demonstrated leadership in advancing healthcare technology in order to improve patient care quality and outcomes. Again, congratulations to everyone who was recognized on this list—we’re proud to partner with 98 of the 113 leaders.
