BRAINTREE, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--S&P Consultants, Inc. joined the College of Healthcare Information Management Executives (CHIME) this month as a foundation partner. CHIME’s core membership—restricted to the highest-ranking IT executives within major healthcare networks—seeks to advance strategic and innovative applications within healthcare in order to improve patient care.
CHIME Foundation Partners are industry thought leaders who are invited to contribute to the group’s mission and advise its membership in specific technology areas.
With 20 years’ experience in integrating complex LIS and EHR systems, S&P anticipates sharing real-world insights with CHIME’s membership in the realm of healthcare IT (HIT) customization, integration, and adoption by clinicians.
“We have a history of successfully negotiating and reconciling the competing priorities of technologists, administrators, and clinicians,” said S&P’s President/CEO Andy Splitz. “The S&P team has significant clinical experience, including a physician who serves as our CMIO. Joining CHIME will allow us to further leverage this experience in shaping tomorrow’s policies and solutions in the healthcare industry at-large. We are looking forward to a robust and dynamic partnership.”
With more than 1,900 CIO members, CHIME provides a highly interactive, trusted environment enabling senior professionals and industry leaders to collaborate, exchange best practices, address professional development needs and advocate the effective use of information management to improve the health and healthcare in the communities they serve.
“Being an active part of the entire healthcare community has always been a big part of who we are as a company,” explained Zach Johnson, S&P’s VP of Business Development. “Because our day-to-day activities center in HIT consulting for diverse healthcare systems across the country, we have a particularly close view of how HIT is actually being implemented. Joining CHIME will present new opportunities for us to share these insights, as well as educate—and learn from—other CHIME members through focus groups and live sessions. We are excited about this new partnership.”
