CHIME Awards

The College of Healthcare Information Management Executives (CHIME) Awards

CHIME is the professional organisation for Chief Information Officers (CIOs) and other senior healthcare IT leaders. CHIME enables its members and business partners to collaborate, exchange ideas, develop professionally, and advocate the effective use of information management to improve the health and healthcare in the communities they serve.  CHIME’s current membership base consists of over 1,400 health system members and 100+ vendor/third party organisations.

Cerner’s CHIME Membership  enables collaboration with more than 1,400 CIOs and healthcare IT executives from leading health systems both within and outside of the US. It provides several educational opportunities to maintain and strengthen our relationships with our clients through their in-person events (CHIME Spring/Fall Forums), market research, award submissions, and education sessions (among others). Many of these opportunities allow Cerner to highlight our collaborative efforts with clients, as well as their achievements.

Congratulations to the following Cerner clients who have been recognized with CHIME awards!
