Two Change Healthcare Tech Leaders Nominated for Nashville Technology Council Awards

The Nashville Technology Council (NTC) has named finalists for the 14 categories of its annual NTC Awards program, and among the nominees are two top members of the Change Healthcare technology team.

Change Healthcare Chief Information Officer Chris Bayham is a finalist for CIO of the Year, and Chief Information Security Officer Haddon Bennett is up for CISO of the Year.

Bayham has achieved early wins through the use of collaboration and productivity tools to enable improved communication and knowledge sharing across the enterprise. His department ensures the stability and ongoing technology operations within its onsite data centers as well as in the public cloud across the company’s Software and Analytics, Network Solutions, and Technology Enabled Services businesses.

Bennett’s department ensures that information for approximately 5,000 hospitals, 2,100 payer connections, and 800,000 physicians remains protected every day through a complex combination of technology, process, and human controls. He has earned the confidence of Change Healthcare senior leadership to implement and guide the security programs and protocols that govern and protect the largest network in healthcare.

The NTC Awards program, now in its ninth year, has the goal of connecting, developing, and promoting middle Tennessee’s community of developers and technology entrepreneurs and institutions. Winners will be announced at a January 25 awards ceremony.

More than 300 nominations were submitted by members of the Nashville technology community. Finalists were selected by a panel of peers and tech industry leaders.
