Glaser Honored with Lifetime Achievement Award by CHIME

October 19, 2012

One of the nicest people you will ever meet received a Lifetime Achievement award from The Colleage of Healthcare Information Management Executives (CHIME) Foundation.

John Glaser, PhD, CEO, Siemens Healthcare is being honored for a 35-year career that involves numerous leadership roles and involvement in many ground-breaking initiatives. He receives the award today at the CHIME ‘12 Fall CIO Forum in Indian Wells, Calif.

Glaser joined Siemens Healthcare as CEO of the global healthcare IT business in August 2010. He is responsible for overseeing product development, strategy, portfolio management, financial performance and overall customer satisfaction. Prior to this position he was vice president and CIO of Boston-based Partners Healthcare, an organization recognized as one of the industry’s leaders in implementing and successfully using IT in a range of settings.

Glaser is one of the leading spokespersons for the healthcare IT industry. He has championed the push to demonstrate how IT capabilities can enhance healthcare delivery. He served as the founding chairman of CHIME in 1992, and his long-term involvement was instrumental in helping the society grow into an influential professional development and advocacy organization for healthcare IT.

“It is encouraging and professionally rewarding to have been part of CHIME at its inception and to be distinguished now at CHIME’s 20th anniversary meeting.” Glaser said, “The mission of CHIME was always based on the professional development of the CIO and the healthcare IT leadership and leveraging that leadership to improve healthcare through the use of IT. Today’s CIO now faces the increasing complexity of using healthcare IT to address the challenges associated with payment reform initiatives, such as shared savings and bundled payments. The revenue that organizations receive will be increasingly based on the organization’s clinical and operational performance. Now more than ever CIOs will need to be leaders in the adoption of technologies such as electronic health records, analytics and health information exchange to help address these challenges.”
