Frederick Health CIO wins HITMC Provider Trailblazer of the Year
Jackie Rice, BSN, RN, Vice President and CIO, Frederick Health, named winner of the Provider Trailblazer of the Year by the Healthcare and IT Marketing Community (HITMC).
Jackie Rice, BSN, RN, Vice President and CIO, Frederick Health, was named winner of the Provider Trailblazer of the Year award at the 2023 Healthcare and IT Marketing (HITMC) Awards sponsored by Medigy on April 16.
The HITMC Awards celebrate creative excellence, breakthrough concepts, flawless execution, and outstanding leadership in healthcare marketing, PR, and communications.
For over two decades, Jackie has been a champion for more effective use of health information technology and data-driven decision-making for improving care delivery, patient and provider experience, and health outcomes.
As the IT leader of Frederick Health’s expanding precision medicine program, Jackie advocates for the use of genomics and genetic data by physicians of all specialties, including oncology, immunology, neurology, and maternal and fetal medicine.
Frederick Health is blazing new trails for health IT as an independent community health system, demonstrating how healthcare organizations of any size can lead as innovators. Until now, only the largest, best-funded urban teaching and research hospitals were using genomic medicine in this way, and most were doing so in highly specialized, siloed programs.
Prominent industry organizations and media outlets have recognized Frederick Health’s remarkable work in standing-room-only sessions at CHIME and AMIA, and appearances in Becker’s, Health Data Management, HISTalk, Healthcare Innovation, and many others.
MEDITECH congratulates Jackie for this well-deserved recognition, and looks forward to continuing our 30-plus year partnership in improving care for patients in western Maryland.
Jackie will be presenting “How and Why to Launch a Precision Medicine Program” on Thursday, April 20, at 10 a.m. at HIMSS23.
