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.

Scott is one of the most thoughtful and dedicated CIOs I know. All his work with me at the magazine has been aimed at helping other CIOs through his own experience. In that regard, he is such an excellent candidate for this position. Go Scott!
