Date:12/7/2009

OAKLAND, Calif., Dec. 7 /PRNewswire/ -- Computerworld announced today that Philip Fasano, CIO for Kaiser Permanente, has been named a 2010 Premier 100 IT Leaders honoree. Fasano is one of 100 individuals from a broad range of companies recognized for exceptional technology leadership, innovative solutions to business challenges and effectively managed IT strategies.

"Phil's contributions have helped Kaiser Permanente become a national leader in health IT, widening the role of technology in delivering medical care and empowering consumers to take control of their own health," said George Halvorson, CEO, Kaiser Permanente. "He is a true ambassador for the emerging and increasingly important space where information technology meets health care."

Since joining Kaiser Permanente as CIO in 2007, Fasano has been working on moving the $40 billion not-for-profit health care system toward a vision of real-time, personalized health care for its 8.6 million members - specifically by directing the development and implementation of the technology to support and extend this vision. Fasano leads nearly 6,000 IT employees in building better tools and platforms to deliver personalized care that is smart, connected, collaborative, affordable and preventive.

The centerpiece of the technology platform is Kaiser Permanente HealthConnect®, the world's largest civilian electronic health record. Kaiser Permanente HealthConnect® gives the organization's 14,600 physicians immediate access to patients' status and medical history, as well as decision support based on evidence-based practice guidelines and the latest medical research. Kaiser Permanente's members can easily and conveniently make and reschedule appointments, check lab results, and send e-mails to care providers via My Health Manager, the online personal health record that connects directly with Kaiser Permanente HealthConnect®.

"I'm pleased to share this honor with my entire information technology team," said Fasano, "all of whom play a critical part in bringing to life technology solutions that represent the future of health care delivery."

Computerworld created the Premier 100 nearly 10 years ago to spotlight individuals who have had a positive impact on their organization through technology. Each year, 100 people are selected to receive this lifetime recognition award. Fasano joins the 1,000 honoree alumni dating back to the year 2000. Computerworld's award-winning magazine and Web site are leading sources of technology news and information for IT influencers worldwide.
