It’s time to stop thinking of CNIOs as ‘firefighters,’ and start seeing them as key figures in guiding business decisions and strategies at the highest levels, according to Tammy Jackson and Hillary Ross of Witt/Kieffer.
A technology roadmap does much more than provide direction; if executed well, it can help leaders more effectively prioritize, communication, and ensure alignment with strategic objectives, says CIO Michael Saad.
With data breaches on the rise – and many health systems still not dedicating enough time or resources to cybersecurity – it’s more important than ever that CIOs and IT security leaders work together to develop a solid roadmap, says Michael Saad.
Sometimes all it takes is a simple question – ‘Did you know this was happening?’ – to close the gap between senior executives and those on the front line, and help determine the best possible solutions, says CIO Aaron Miri.
For an implementation to be successful, business units have to take ownership of the entire process, says CIO Kathy Ross. And that means partnering with IT on the build and development – not just handing it over.
