Walnut Creek, Calif. (May 8, 2017) — IDG’s CIO announced John Muir Health as a recipient of the 2017 CIO 100 Award. The 30th annual award program recognizes organizations around the world that exemplify the highest level of operational and strategic excellence in information technology (IT).
"Technology innovation and business value have always been at the heart of our CIO 100 awards, which honor the IT organizations thriving on the front lines of the digital revolution," said Maryfran Johnson, Editor in Chief, CIO Events. "This year's winning companies are outstanding examples of how IT leadership, business collaboration and customer engagement are shaping the future."
“We are thrilled to be recognized by CIO for this award. Year after year, we continue to demonstrate our commitment to providing our patients with the highest quality and most cost-effective care,” said Jon Russell, SVP/CIO/Analytics at John Muir Health. “This recognition from CIO reaffirms our commitment to developing innovate IT solutions for our patients and medical providers, including keeping important patient health information secure.”
Recipients of this year's CIO 100 Award were selected through a three-step process. First, companies filled out an online application form detailing their innovative IT and business initiatives. Next, a team of external judges (many of them former CIOs) reviewed the applications in depth, looking for leading-edge IT practices and measurable results. Finally, CIO editors reviewed the judges' evaluations and selected the final 100.
Led by CIO Russell and his team, John Muir Health was recognized for implementing and managing a strategic information security program. The collective team instituted a risk and threat assessment across the entire organization and worked with the health system’s leadership, industry peers and federal law enforcement to identify strategic security solutions.
Executives from the winning companies will be recognized at The CIO 100 Symposium & Awards Ceremony, to be held Wednesday evening, August 16th, at the Broadmoor Resort in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
Coverage of the 2017 CIO 100 Awards will be available online at CIO.com on August 16, 2017 and in the July/August issue of CIO's digital magazine.
