John Glaser, longtime CIO at Partners Healthcare, in August will be joining Siemens Healthcare as CEO of its Health Services Business unit. Earlier this year, Glaser finished up a nearly yearlong stint as an advisor to Dr. David Blumenthal, national coordinator for health IT. Glaser, who was named an InformationWeek Innovator and Influencer in 2007, was also founding chairman of the College of Healthcare Information Management Executives, a professional organization of healthcare CIOs and other senior IT leaders. Glaser (along with Halamka) is also co-creator of the New England Health EDI Network, a consortium that lets health care providers swap administrative and payment data with insurers.
