CHIME Foundation Certified Healthcare Executive Title Recognizes Dedication to Education

Chicago, IL (October 12, 2017) – Impact Advisors, LLC, a leading provider of healthcare information technology services, is pleased to announce that Lydon Neumann, Vice President, recently became a CHIME Foundation Certified Healthcare Executive (CFCHE). Available for the first time this year by the College of Healthcare Information Management Executives (CHIME) Foundation, the CFCHE program is exclusively designed for those who have a comprehensive understanding of the healthcare IT environment. Neumann is among the first to be credentialed with this honor and recognized for one of the highest professional achievements in the industry.

“As healthcare leaders, it is incredibly important that we make ongoing education a priority,” said Lydon Neumann, Vice President at Impact Advisors. “Earning this prestigious designation is an honor, and I look forward to more of my fellow industry colleagues from Impact Advisors and other CHIME Foundation members pursing and achieving this status.”

“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. CFCHE shows the level of commitment one has to not only the industry at large, but to CHIME and all whom they work with to bring the highest level of professional excellence.”

To achieve CFCHE status, 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 CHCIO status. Additionally, candidates will participate in programs and events that continue their education as an IT leader and pass a rigorous examination. 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 becoming stagnant.
