Partners HealthCare System Vice President and CIO John Glaser will become CEO of Siemens Health Services Division in mid-August. This announcement came last week from the College of Healthcare Information Management Executives (CHIME), where Glaser is a founding chairman.

Glaser just recently completed a six-month advisory role with the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC), working alongside David Blumenthal, M.D. to carry out the HIT provisions of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA).

In his new role at Siemens, Glaser will lead the company’s global healthcare IT business, including product development, strategy, portfolio management, financial performance, and overall customer satisfaction. At Siemens, he will leade more than 4,500 employees, multiple health information system brands, a Global Services arm, and Siemens' Information Systems Center.

“As the HITECH Act continues to place the spotlight on CIOs, there is growing recognition of the key leadership abilities they possess,” said CHIME President and CEO Rich Correll in a press release. “Bringing CIOs into top positions with the industry’s product and services providers will certainly serve to strengthen the relationship between the two in order to offer more efficient, effective healthcare delivery.”
