CHIME Foundation Certified Healthcare Executive Title Recognizes Dedication to Education
Burlington, Mass. – July 17, 2018 – Dimensional Insight, the maker of Diver Platform, a data management and analytics solution, is pleased to announce that George Dealy, Vice President of Healthcare Applications, recently became a CHIME Foundation Certified Healthcare Executive (CFCHE), one of the highest professional achievements in the industry. The College of Healthcare Information Management Executives (CHIME) Foundation awards certification to industry representatives who pass a comprehensive exam that evaluates their understanding of the healthcare IT environment.
“CHIME is an organization that recognizes emerging healthcare leaders who are fully committed to the healthcare IT environment. Those who obtain their CFCHE certification not only prove their extensive understanding of the industry, but their responsibility towards its improvement as well,” says Fred Powers, president and CEO of Dimensional Insight. “We are proud of this accomplishment and to have George as a valuable and integral part of our team.”
“Healthcare is undergoing a massive transformation,” said CHIME President and CEO Russell Branzell, CHCIO. “We are shifting to a value-based environment, improving coordination across the continuum and striving to reduce costs. Health IT is critical to achieving these goals, but to be effective it needs dedicated professionals. A CFCHE designation shows a high level of commitment to CHIME, our members and the industry as a whole as we work collectively to bring professional excellence to patient care.”
To enroll in the CFCHE program, candidates must have at least three years of experience at a CHIME Foundation member organization or qualifying healthcare organization or have one year at a qualifying organization and maintain their CHIME Certified Healthcare CIO status. In addition, they must have a baccalaureate degree or be enrolled in a baccalaureate program. To maintain their CFCHE status, they must pass the exam and participate in programs and events that continue their education as an IT leader. These qualifications ensure that the healthcare executive is truly dedicated to ongoing education, an important characteristic in an industry where patients pay the price for outdated systems and practices.
