Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio, July 28, 2017 — Pam Banchy, RN-BC, PMP, CHCIO, Vice President, Clinical Informatics and CIO at Western Reserve Hospital, was recently named to Becker’s Hospital Review first-ever list of “100 Community Hospital CIOs to Know in 2017.”

Chief Information Officers (CIOs) from across the country were selected as top-of-their-field honorees due to the outstanding recognitions they've earned and exciting new projects they're piloting. Other consideration for inclusion were Ms. Banchy’s membership in the Health Integration and Management Systems Society and her leadership in earning Western Reserve Hospital’s spot on Hospitals & Health Network's Health Care's “Most Wired” list in 2017.

Banchy has also been named one of the “130 Women Hospital and Health System Leaders to Know” in Becker’s Hospital Review as well. The annual list includes female healthcare executives from across the country, recognizing those who “have established themselves as successful leaders within the continuously evolving healthcare industry,” according to Becker’s.

Banchy has more than 15 years of experience in healthcare IT, and more than 30 years of experience in healthcare. She led the planning, implementation and launch of the Western Reserve Hospital’s EMR system and continues to guide regulatory reporting, expansion and operations of that system. She has also been named a “CIO Superstar” in Health Management Technology magazine.

“Pam’s clinical background, coupled with her expertise in the technology field, truly makes her a superior recipient for this honor,” said Dr. Robert Kent, president and CEO of Western Reserve Hospital. “Her work is an integral part of why each patient’s experience with us runs so smoothly. Her clinical and technological experience allow her to see how our service and care advancements will most efficiently assist patients and families for the best possible care.”
