FALLS CHURCH, Va., April 30 /PRNewswire/ -- Computer Sciences Corporation (NYSE: CSC) today announced that Dr. Robert M. Wah, chief medical officer and vice president of its North American Public Sector business unit, has been ranked number 10 in Modern Physician and Modern Healthcare magazines' annual ranking of the 50 Most Powerful Physician Executives, published in April. Readers from both magazines nominated 7,300 physician executives for the fourth annual ranking. Of the top 100 most-nominated candidates, nearly 20,000 ballots were cast to determine the top 50. This year, Dr. Wah advanced four places in his ranking from number 14 in last year's poll.

"This ranking reflects Dr. Wah's commitment and leadership to transform healthcare with better information for better decisions," said Raymond E. Henry, president of CSC's North American Public Sector Government Health Services division. "We congratulate Dr. Wah on this recognition of his many accomplishments. He is an expert in health information systems and his successes show our customers that they can count on us to improve the quality of patient care through the use of information technology."

Dr. Wah's focus is on managing and growing business with federal and state government agencies responsible for healthcare, and working closely with CSC's commercial and international business units that serve the healthcare sector.

Since joining CSC in 2007, Dr. Wah has applied his insights and expertise to many of the company's client programs, including occupational healthcare in high-risk locations such as the Hanford Nuclear facility; claims processing for eMedNY, the New York Medicaid system which handled 600 million transactions last year with no downtime; and bringing new discoveries from the lab to patients at DynPort Vaccine Company LLC. He is also working on bioinformatics harnessing technology to extract value from data and connecting data islands around the globe with CSC projects such as the Nationwide Health Information Network trial implementation in the United States, and projects in the United Kingdom, the Netherlands and Denmark.

Dr. Wah continues to be an active leader within the overall healthcare industry, serving on multiple boards and teaching at educational institutions. He is also often sought by the media for his expertise and regularly speaks at industry conferences.

Prior to joining CSC, Dr. Wah served as acting deputy national coordinator for health information technology (IT) at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. He also worked for the Military Health System in the Office of the Secretary of Defense as the associate chief information officer and director of information management.
