HIMSS names 7 honorees in inaugural 'Most Influential Women in Health IT'

The Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society has named the recipients of its first-ever Most Influential Women in Health IT Award.

The award, sponsored by Verizon and EY, recognizes seven women this year. These honorees were selected from more than 140 nominations.

Shareefa Al Abulmonem, head of eServices at King Faisal Specialist Hospital and Research Center, Saudi Arabia

Marion J. Ball, senior advisor at IBM-Center for Computational Health and professor emerita at Baltimore-based Johns Hopkins University, United States

Rachelle Blake, CEO and managing director at Omni Med Solutions, Germany

Christina Caraballo, senior healthcare strategist at Get Real Health, United States

Karen DeSalvo, MD, acting assistant secretary of health at HHS, United States

Karen Guice, MD, acting assistant secretary of defense for health affairs at U.S. Department of Defense, United States

Lisa Stump, CIO at New Haven, Conn.-based Yale New Haven Health and Yale School of Medicine, United States

"Women have been making a difference in health IT for decades, but their accomplishments and contributions are not often visible to all of us," HIMSS Executive Vice President Carla Smith said in a post on the society's website. "Recognizing these seven recipients of the HIMSS Most Influential Women in Health IT Award changes that scenario."
