May issue. The May issue of Becker’s Hospital Review offers a unique collection of perspectives on some of the most pressing issues in healthcare today. It contains the annual list of 100 Great Hospitals in America, along with feature stories about the role of the chief experience officer, a detailed overview on MU stage 3, the advice hospital and health system CEOs never received before stepping into their roles and CFOs’ best practices for running finance teams.

Chief Information Officer and Health IT Summit July 20-21 at the Ritz-Carlton Chicago. We are thrilled to have more than 50 outstanding hospital and health system IT executives discuss the role of the CIO, social media, data analytics, mHealth and EMR issues.
