In an industry in which “digital” and “innovation” are tossed around constantly — and, some believe, rather haphazardly — it would be safe to assume the most popular posts would focus on those areas. Among healthsystemCIO’s readers, however, that assumption isn’t just unsafe; it’s flat-out wrong. Although topics like artificial intelligence, data analytics, and consumer health are certainly of interest to our audience of CIOs and other leaders, the recurring theme throughout our most popular interviews was leadership.
For example, Pamela McNutt, CIO at Methodist Health System, discussed how her philosophy has evolved throughout the years and why it’s critical for leaders to have a “finger on the pulse,” while Craig Richardville, CIO at SCL Health talked about the importance of setting realistic expectations and having solid communication skills.
Other areas of interest included the groundbreaking telehealth program at NewYork-Presbyterian; Microsoft veteran B.J. Moore’s first few weeks as CIO of Providence St. Joseph Health; and the dedication of organizations like Sarah Cannon and City of Hope in fighting cancer.
