As organizations focus more resources on optimization, having leaders who can act as “bridges” between is becoming increasingly important, says Hillary Ross, who discusses trends in health IT leadership.
It’s not just the CIO role that’s evolving, says Hillary Ross of Witt/Kieffer, who discusses key trends in health IT leadership positions, from the emergence of the chief digital officer to the growing prominence of the CISO.
A number of topics seemed to bubble up to the surface during our most popular interviews from the past year, but perhaps none were as prominent as digital health, the advancement of women in IT leadership roles, and addressing opioid abuse.
If an organization is serious about transformation, the best way to enable that is by having a CIO and a chief digital officer working in conjunction, say Hillary Ross of Witt/Kieffer.
As the industry begins its transition to fee-for-value, the CHIO is emerging as a clinical strategist that can be looked at to guide a health system’s vision, say Hillary Ross and Zachary Durst of Witt/Kieffer.
