Formerly the Deputy Director of the Center for Health Statistics and Informatics with the California Department of Public Health, Dr. Geraghty led the state vital records and public health informatics programs. There she engaged in statewide initiatives in meaningful use, health information exchange, open data and interoperability.

“It’s truly an honor to be recognized by HIMSS. I am humbled to receive this award, particularly during a pandemic in which so many in health have sacrificed and worked tirelessly to support their communities,” said Dr. Geraghty. “I believe we’re at another inflection point with health informatics as health professionals across the spectrum and those we serve have experienced the transformational power of sharing and analyzing data to inform and improve policy and practice.
