Georgia State University won the Phoenix Award for University Advancement of the Year at the 2014 Health Information Technology Leadership Summit. This is a major accomplishment for the Center for Health Information Technology, housed within Georgia State’s Robinson College of Business.

Eph McLean, director of the Center for Health IT at Robinson, spoke about how the college was heavily involved with the success of the summit.

“We’re here with a booth and we’re sponsoring the luncheon, which gives us a lot of visibility,” said McLean. He also spoke about plans for Robinson to attend the largest health IT event in Chicago next year.

Lauren Jeske, a student of the health informatics program, talked about important it was for Robinson to represent Atlanta’s contributions to this sector of the health field.

“We’re one of the few schools in the country that has this degree,” said Jeske. “We are at the hub of what Atlanta is doing for health informatics.”

Another GSU student commented on how the health informatics skills he’s gaining can help with his future career in healthcare.

“I want to do something focused in public health or implementation,” said student Chisom Onwumere-Amadi. “I like helping people learn how to use different things.”

The Center for Health Information Technology worked in conjunction with the Metro Atlanta Chamber for the summit.
