CHIME announces new organization to aid CSOs

The College of Healthcare Information Management Executives has launched a new organization to offer support to healthcare leaders in senior IT security positions.

The Association for Executives in Healthcare Information Security will represent chief security officials by providing an environment for CSOs to communicate, inform and educate each other, according to an announcement from CHIME.

"The CHIME Board recognized our industry's void in supporting the professional development and peer-to-peer needs of CSOs, and that educational resources for key members of the CIO's executive team were lacking," CHIME President and CEO Russell P. Branzell said a statement. Announcement
