The CHIME Experience is chaired by Dr Shafiq Rab, CIO of Rush University Medical Center, Chicago and CHIME Board Chair, and co-chaired by Dr James Yip, Chief Data Advisor at the Singapore Ministry of Health. Dr Rab is joined by colleagues Omar Lateef, CEO of Rush University Medical Center; and Ranga Krishnan, CEO of Rush University System for Health, all of whom will present keynotes at Cloud Expo Asia.
CHIME faculty members, comprising experienced healthcare CIOs, are contributing five more presentations on subjects including using predictive health data, integrating technology in healthcare settings, cyber threats, and the future of cloud in healthcare.
Jane Dwelly, CHIME’s Executive Director International says: “CHIME is committed to bringing its education and leadership training to healthcare leaders around the world. We are thrilled to serve existing CHIME members in Asia as well as introduce new colleagues to our organisation, as we build our mission to use IT to transform health and care.”
Co-located in Marina Bay Sands, CHIME is holding a Healthcare Leadership Academy on the afternoon of day one and the morning of day two.

Topics include healthcare strategy in a cloud-enabled world, healthcare in technology transitions and cyber security in healthcare settings.

Our academically robust curriculum is taught by CIOs from internationally renowned hospitals and healthcare organisations, together we’ll bring first-hand knowledge and experience to bear on the most current issues facing healthcare leaders. When students complete the Academy, they will be eligible to sit for the International CHCIO qualification - a sign of senior leadership achievement in healthcare”.
