The Ann Arbor, Mich.-based College of Healthcare Information Management Executives (CHIME), recently wrote to the Obama-Biden Presidential Transition Team in support of President-elect Barack Obama’s goal of health reform.

The organization praised the plan’s inclusion of electronic health record systems and other technologies to improve the quality and efficiency of healthcare delivery. In addition, CHIME also offered seven recommendations on health IT in the areas of federal leadership, standards policy, incentives, national infrastructure for health IT, health IT workforce, underserved populations and privacy and security.
