"The addition of HIMSS Analytics' data on IT processes and environments, costs and management metrics, and purchasing decisions will greatly enrich the work that we do with our member CIOs," said Musslewhite. "This initiative also provides an outstanding opportunity for us to serve the broader executive suite in a more in-depth way on technology issues that are strategically important to the future success of their institutions. We are particularly excited about the IT knowledge and expertise that Dave and Mike bring to the Advisory Board. This is a winning combination, and I am confident that it will create tremendous value for our members and for all the additional members who come on board to take advantage of this work."
"Successful IT choices require deep expertise on the environment in which the system will operate," said H. Stephen Lieber, President and CEO of Healthcare Information Management Systems Society (HIMSS). "The Advisory Board's nuanced understanding of best practices in the clinical and operational setting of hospitals provides a critical perspective to IT leaders. For our part, HIMSS Analytics is excited about this new chapter in our work. Together, HIMSS Analytics and the Advisory Board will support IT users, business users, and clinical users across the full project planning and implementation cycle to yield successful IT projects that drive real returns. We look forward to a long and fruitful relationship."
