Randy McCleese, vice president of information systems and CIO at St. Claire Regional Medical Center (Morehead, Ky.) has won the inaugural State Advocacy Award from the Ann Arbor, Mich.-based College of Healthcare Information Management Executives (CHIME).

According to the organization, McCleese was the driving force behind Kentucky’s first State Advocacy Day, held in March of 2008. He worked with several organizations to bring healthcare IT executives across the state together to inform policymakers on the value of health IT in improving the safety and effectiveness of healthcare.

The award was created to honor a CHIME member for their dedication to the advancement of healthcare IT within their state, it says.

A not-for-profit, 159-bed regional referral center, St. Claire Regional Medical Center is the largest rural hospital in northeastern Kentucky. It is sponsored by the Sisters of Notre Dame in Covington, Ky., and is an established training site for the University of Kentucky School of Medicine’s physician residency programs.
