NASHVILLE, Tenn. (PRWEB) October 18, 2017 — Pivot Point Consulting, a Vaco Company is pleased to announce that Peyman S. Zand recently became a CHIME Foundation Certified Healthcare Executive. Available for the first time this year from 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. Zand is among the first to be credentialed and recognized for one of the highest professional achievements in the industry.
“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.”
“Peyman is an innovative and strategic healthcare IT executive, who is committed to giving back to his community.”
Rachel Marano, Pivot Point Consulting’s Managing Partner, said Zand’s achievement is unsurprising. “Peyman is an innovative and strategic healthcare IT executive, who is committed to giving back to his community,” she said. “Whether it’s speaking to fellow CIOs about how to develop a culture of innovation, helping clients determine their IT priorities and strategies, or mentoring colleagues here at Pivot Point, he is always ready to share what he knows.”
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, 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.
