What are people talking about? What do they want to learn about?
At healthsystemCIO, answering those two questions is not just our primary objective — it’s our passion. We want to deliver perspectives on the most pressing matters, from those who are in the trenches.
What we’ve learned is that as priorities have shifted from EHR implementations to digital transformation, the need for collaboration among C-suite leaders has increased exponentially. To effectively drive change, CIOs must understand the challenges of other executive leaders and remain in lockstep.
With that in mind, we’ve expanded our interviews to include other key players such as CISOs, CDOs, CNIOs, and CMIOs — a move that has clearly been appreciated by our readers. Of the top 20 most viewed/heard podcast interviews, nearly half featured security leaders, a demographic that has been underrepresented for quite some time.
By bucking the trend and offering a platform for CISOs, we hope to provide a more compelling picture of the obstacles healthcare organizations face, while also sharing best practices on how they can be managed. That includes safeguarding data, a responsibility that no longer falls squarely on the shoulders of IS leaders.
As Kathy Hughes, CISO at Northwell Health, said during an interview, “Ultimately what we do and how we protect our systems isn’t an IT issue, it’s an enterprise issue.”
Of course, several other areas were also covered in our most popular interviews, including clinician burnout, budgeting and prioritization, the IT workforce shortage, and leadership development.
As always, we’re incredibly grateful for the many individuals who are willing to lend their time and expertise, and we look forward to more robust discussions in 2023.
