July 1, 2010

The College of Healthcare Information Management Executives (CHIME) announced that Russell P. Branzell, vice president-IS & CIO at Poudre Valley Health System in Fort Collins, CO, is the recipient of CHIME’s second annual State Advocacy Award.

Branzell was recognized for his commitment to the growth and success of state-wide initiatives to bring together stakeholders across Colorado to further the advancement of health IT.

“It is an absolute honor to receive this recognition from my peers and CHIME,” Branzell said. “I must give the recognition to the incredible group of Colorado CIOs that I have the privilege to work with as we try to lead, direct, and facilitate healthcare IT enabled change.”

Branzell organized and led the development of C4, the Colorado CIO Collaborative Committee, a group organized for senior leaders in HIT to work collectively on significant and urgent issues within their state. Additionally, he brought together elements of the Colorado Telehealth Network (CTN), Colorado Hospital Association and Colorado Regional Health Information Organization (CORHIO) in an effort to build a stronger union of CIOs in the state of Colorado.
