How do you decide who to interview?
At healthsystemCIO, we interview hospital and health system CIOs, along with a few select hospital-side IT executives.
Do you accept contributed content?
If you are a hospital or health system IT executive (CIO, CTO, managing director, etc) interested in writing a piece for publication, please contact Managing Editor & Director of Social Media Kate Gamble before you start writing. We do not accept articles that are already in final form. We also do not accept inquiries or submissions from third-parties.
healthsystemCIO.com is interested in interviewing health system or hospital CIOs who we have not interviewed before. If, as a vendor, a hospital has contracted to use your products or services, and the CIO is willing to do a wide-ranging interview about industry trends — along with their strategic objectives and most pressing challenges — feel free to contact us. While your product or service will come up in the discussion, the interview will not be centered around it.
What should interviewees know about how the process works?
healthsystemCIO adheres to all standard journalistic practices. As such, specific questions are not provided before the interview. Sources are encouraged to review past interviews to gain an idea of what types of topics may be covered. Formal interviews usually run between 35 and 50 minutes, are always considered “on the record” and are not subject to review or revision by the interviewee. Of course, if an interviewee notices a factual error upon publication, we will immediately correct it. All interviews are run in the Q&A format – both text and Podcast form.
Do you produce an editorial calendar?
We do not. In fact, we believe they negatively impact editorial quality by requiring the coverage of old topics, regardless of whether they are still the most relevant.
