Scott MacLean for President! (Well, HIMSS Board at least)

It’s not often we get an opportunity to lobby for a “friend” of the magazine, but just such a chance is here.

Over the past year, HCI, specifically senior editor Daphne Lawrence, has gotten to know Scott MacLean, CIO and Corporate Director at Newton-Wellesley Hospital/Partners HealthCare, very well. Lawrence reviews all contributed items, working closely with authors to bring submitted pieces up to her exacting standards. To date, Scott has bested that hurdle twice – (ARRA: The Care Revolution & Going With the Flow: Lessons from Disruptive Change) – a significant feat for any busy CIO. In addition to writing those pieces, Scott served as a source for Daphne in this story on CRM: Patients, Not Purchases.

As such, it’s not difficult to support Scott in his efforts to join the HIMSS board. If you’re a HIMSS member, I urge you to cast a vote for Scott; you will be doing right by HIMSS, and your industry.
