Digital Medicine Transformation: The New Skill for CIOs
1:00pm - 2:00pmWednesday, February 13
Orlando - Orange County Convention Center
The role of CIO has fundamentally changed over the last 20 years. With the technological wave of electronic health records (EHRs), there was a rapid growth of new positions such as CMIOs as well as an ever-expanding team of analysts, managers, directors and VPs to help implement new EHR systems. As the years progressed, CIOs have developed the skills to oversee EHR and other information and technology systems within the health setting as well as utilize the expanded teams of professionals to full effect. Recently, however, there has been a new technological wave of digital health and medicine that requires CIOs to broaden their role, to interact with, to oversee and most importantly, to develop innovation within the healthcare system. Through real world case examples at Cleveland Clinic and Mount Sinai, we present examples of standardized approaches that aim to create an environment to sustain and scale digital medicine interventions and develop the skills to thrive in the digital era.
