"Debbie was instrumental in the planning and implementation of the new claims system, ICD-10, upgrading the core infrastructure, and meeting state and federal compliance regulations," said Scott Coffin, CEO of Alameda. "Her executive and team leadership skills have led to the improvement of outcomes at the Alliance, and she has developed a strategic roadmap for the organization to support our future growth and expansion."

Rieger will be honored at The Premier 100 awards ceremony at the AGENDA16 Conference held March 21 - 23, 2016, at the Omni Amelia Island Plantation Resort in Amelia Island, Florida.  

"An effective IT team is often the lifeblood of any organization; my goal is to develop the strategies that help organizations adopt the technology and processes that lead to continued improvement," said Rieger. "I am proud to be a member of Tatum's distinguished CIO partner network, and I am honored to be named among Computerworld's prestigious list of technology leaders."

"The Premier 100 awards program showcases the strategic thinking of an elite group of IT leaders who are using technology to digitally transform their organizations," said Scot Finnie, editor in chief of Computerworld. "These dedicated executives are creating nimble IT organizations to respond quickly to today's business needs, and to the influx of technologies such as cloud computing, the Internet of Things, social media, mobile and wearables.

They're also constantly adjusting their risk management strategies to align with the evolving security landscape.
