CHIME Foundation to Celebrate 25th Anniversary and its Members
By Barb Sivek, VP of CHIME Foundation
CHIME Foundation is excited to announce that 2018 marks the kickoff of our 25th anniversary celebration! In the past 25 years we have enjoyed a great deal of growth and seen many changes. When CHIME Foundation was created in 1994, CHIME itself was only two years old, a relatively new organization. CHIME Foundation’s inaugural year ended with 15 Foundation firms, and at least six of those member firms are still active today.
- CHANGE Healthcare (formerly McKesson)
- GE Healthcare
- DXC (formerly CSC)
These firms are the “Founding Firms” and we appreciate all of the great work that has been accomplished through their long-term support of the CHIME Foundation. The CHIME Foundation Board is making plans now for a very special event in conjunction with the 2018 CHIME Fall CIO Forum at the end of October. Over the next months leading up to Fall CIO Forum, our team plans to bring you insights and reflections from our long-term members, in an article series called “Founding Firms: Celebrating 25 Years of Robust Partnership.”
Starting soon, we will profile our long-term members. Stay tuned for more information as we move closer to our big anniversary celebration at CHIME18!
