Three policy leaders will receive one of the HIMSS Health Information Technology Leadership Awards during the 9th National Health IT Week in Washington, D.C. The awards ceremony will be held at the National Health IT Week Awards and Partners Reception on Sept. 17. In addition, the recipient of the College of Healthcare Information Management (CHIME) Executives Federal Public Policy Award for CIO Leadership will also be recognized during this event.
“Each year during National Health IT Week, HIMSS honors public policy leaders whose dedication and commitment to improving health through IT has made a positive difference in the transformation of healthcare. We recognize these three individuals because their individual achievements at the congressional, federal and state levels support our unified cause to advance effective, quality, cost-effective and accessible patient care with IT,” says Carla Smith, MA, CNM, FHIMSS, Executive Vice President, HIMSS North America.
