CHIME Honors Ganguly for State Advocacy Leadership

September 14, 2011

The College of Healthcare Information Management Executives (CHIME) has awarded awarded its third annual State Advocacy Award to Indranil “Neal” Ganguly, CHCIO, vice president and CIO at CentraState Healthcare System in Freehold, NJ.

Ganguly is being recognized for his involvement in CHIME StateNet and his commitment to the growth and success of state-wide initiatives to further the advancement of health information exchange and health IT adoption.

“I am honored to receive this award from my peers,” said Ganguly. “As the healthcare industry enters a period of great change, it is more important than ever for CIOs to get engaged in the public policy process.”

As its current vice chair, Ganguly has been a driving force of CHIME StateNet, an online network of CIOs and other health IT stakeholders intended to enhance communication and foster statewide coalitions on important matters related to the HITECH Act.

As part of its efforts to facilitate effective health information exchange, StateNet formed an HIE Workgroup where Ganguly serves as chair. Earlier this year, he presided over the development of StateNet’s Guiding Principles, developed as operating guidelines for regional extension centers (RECs) and HIEs.

“Neal is a tremendous asset to the state of New Jersey and its endeavors in health IT,” said CHIME Sr. Director of Advocacy Sharon Canner. “His colleagues in New Jersey recognize that and his fellow CIOs across the country do too.”

The CHIME State Advocacy Award was created to honor a CHIME member for their demonstrated leadership at the state level in educating policy makers on the value of HIT towards improved patient care. Ganguly represents one of CHIME’s many dedicated members who have helped the industry by influencing governmental policy and energizing colleagues to follow suit.
