The College of Healthcare Information Management Executives (CHIME) of Ann Arbor, Mich., announced two new fellows: Pamela McNutt and Rick Schooler.

McNutt is senior vice president and CIO for Methodist Health System in Dallas. McNutt's experience in the field of healthcare information technology spans nearly 30 years, the last 18 of which have been in the role of CIO at Methodist. Prior to joining Methodist in 1993, she worked for Medicus/HBOC and HermannMemorialHospital in Houston. McNutt recently completed her term on the CHIME Board of Trustees. She is a member of the CHIME Advocacy Leadership Team and Policy Steering Committee. She also participated as a faculty member for the CHIME Healthcare CIO Boot Camp 2003-2006.

Schooler is senior vice president and CIO for

Orlando Health in Florida, where he is responsible for information technology, telecommunications, clinical informatics, medical records, biomedical engineering, and purchasing and materials management. Prior to joining Orlando Health in 2001, he served as vice president and CIO at Central Georgia Health System and Director of Systems Integration at Methodist Hospital of Indiana. He was a member of the CHIME Board of Trustees from 2006-2008, where he also served as Chair. In 2008, Schooler earned CHIME’s Innovator of the Year Award, for his leadership in employing IT to shorten the patient discharge process. Using computer-integrated telephony and interactive voice response technology, the newly automated process frees up nurses and saves money by creating bed space earlier in the day. Schooler is also a member of the

Healthcare Informatics Editorial Board.

According to CHIME, it established the fellow program to honor and recognize members who have actively participated in the organization and who have made significant contributions to the healthcare IT field as a CIO.
