If a population health strategy is going to work, the CIO and CMIO must have a shared vision of how the different elements fit to together, and a robust governance structure, says George Reynolds, MD.
It’s easy to get caught in a reporting matrix, but what really matters is that CMIOs are able to build and maintain relationships with a wide range of key stakeholders, says former CIO/CMIO George Reynolds.
Not much happens in the health system environment that isn’t instigated, directed or determined by a physician, says George Reynolds. So if you want your organization to move forward, you better partner with the CMIO.
With content geared toward the special needs of CMIOs, CHIME offers those in the role an opportunity to strengthen their skillset, says George Reynolds, MD, who calls the course “a mini-MBA designed for the physician leader.”
