Ensuring that patients receive the best possible care often means looking beyond their initial presentation, says Dr. Marc Harrison, who talks about how caregivers are doing that at Intermountain Healthcare.
Although understanding analytics and fostering innovation have become part of the CMIO’s role, the most important component is still being able to communicate with physicians, say our panelists.
As organizations start to pivot toward value-based care, the CMIO must act as a change agent who can understand the needs of different groups and help create alignment.
As organizations shift from implementation to optimization mode, the focus becomes how to make systems as effective as possible without stretching physicians too far. And right in the middle of that conversation is the CMIO.
It doesn’t take an hour to get a strong message across, as was demonstrated when three influential CIOs took the stage during CHIME TED Talks and shared best practices in areas like innovation, security, and patient engagement.
