In breaking news, TopCare™ co-creator and Chief of Biomedical Informatics at Massachusetts General Hospital, Dr. Henry Chueh was named one of the Becker’s Hospital Review “Top 32 CMIOs” in the country. As Becker's states in its article, “The role of the CMIO is gaining importance in healthcare as hospitals and health systems seek to marry clinical processes with information systems.”
“It’s an honor to be recognized for contributions to our field,” said Dr. Chueh. “At MGH we have been working hard for decades to bridge the divide between quality care and information technologies, and it’s exciting to see the nation increasingly recognize the importance of doing so. The future of health IT holds both great challenge and promise.”
Dr. Chueh is also the Director of the Lab of Computer Science (LCS) and CMIO of the Edward P. Lawrence Center for Quality and Safety at Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH). With his colleagues at LCS and MGH, Dr. Chueh uses informatics to create innovations in health information systems at the hospital. Dr. Chueh has been an elected Fellow of the American College of Medical Informatics since 1999.
