Healthcare IT News
We’ve got a relatively light roundup this week, but it’s still chock-full of important information. We hope you enjoy reading, and have a happy Friday!
HIMSS and CHIME Announce CIO of the Year
According to HIMSS and CHIME, Pamela Arora was the CIO of the Year in 2016. There’s a wonderful write-up on Healthcare IT News about her history and the achievements which led her to receiving this award. Congrats Pamela!
As a side note: Virtelligence will be in Orlando for the HIMSS Annual Conference. If you’re going to be there, too, let us know so we can introduce ourselves!
Cybersecurity and Ransomware
You might remember that just last week we published a post aimed at understanding the Cybersecurity Outlook for 2017. This week, HIT Consultant published their thoughts on the cloudy forecast for ransomware attacks in the coming year. It’s not a particularly positive outlook, but it is important to stay informed about the “predicted rise in health data theft” on the horizon.
