Given the massive transformation healthcare has undergone in recent years, it should come as no surprise that digital health and cybersecurity were common themes in our most popular interviews from 2022 – particularly the latter.
The CIO isn’t going away anytime soon; but it is transforming, according to Ed Kopetsky. “We’re not just computer geeks; we’re on the front line changing the way healthcare is delivered and the way the business is run,” he said in a recent interview.
The CIO’s role in a major initiative like rolling out Epic? Keeping it alive, says Ed Kopetsky. And that means sustaining executive team involvement and commitment,, recruiting the right people, and “clearing the roadway for others to take off.”
If we want to improve patient care, it’s not enough merely to share data within our own organization – or with those who use the same EHR, says CIO Ed Kopetsky, who believes partnering with others is “core to who we are.”
A number of topics seemed to bubble up to the surface during our most popular interviews from the past year, but perhaps none were as prominent as digital health, the advancement of women in IT leadership roles, and addressing opioid abuse.
