Schooler named CHIME-HIMSS 2011 CIO of the year

March 1, 2012
Rick Schooler, FCHIME, was presented with the 2011 John E. Gall Jr. CIO of the Year Award at the 2012 Annual HIMSS Conference and Exhibition in Las Vegas last month. Schooler is chief information officer and vice president at Orlando Health, an integrated delivery system with a variety of healthcare providers in central Florida.

The lifetime-achievement award is sponsored by the College of Healthcare Information Management Executives (CHIME) and HIMSS. The boards of directors for both organizations annually select the recipient of the award, which recognizes health IT executives who have made significant contributions to their organization and demonstrated innovative leadership through effective use of technology. The award is named in honor of the late John E. Gall Jr., who pioneered implementation of the first fully integrated medical information system in the world at California’s El Camino Hospital in the 1960s.

Schooler’s distinguished career in health IT spans 21 years at three different organizations: Methodist Hospital of Indiana, Central Georgia Health System and Orlando Health. In each role, he made significant accomplishments in the deployment of electronic health records and information technology in complex environments. He has been a member of CHIME since 1994 and a member of HIMSS since 1992.
