As the CIO role continues to evolve, so are the expectations from the CEO, says John Kravitz. In this interview, he talks about his goals as CHIME Board Chair, the pillars of success for healthcare IT leaders, and the work being done to combat opioid abuse.
CHIME has announced new officers for 2021, as well as four new members to its Board of Trustees: Sarah Richardson, Daniel Nigrin, George Hickman, and Ajay Kapare.
Combatting the opioid epidemic means addressing all aspects of it, including prevention, treatment, and recovery, according to a panel of CIOs who presented at the CHIME Advocacy Summit.
CHIME has named three influential leaders and health IT “champions” to its Board of Trustees, while also announcing the officers who will serve in 2020, including John Kravitz of Geisinger.
It isn’t a single “silver bullet” that’s going to help reduce the number of opioid-related deaths, but rather, a combination of IT tools that can identify prescribing patterns and education on alternative therapies, says Geisinger CIO John Kravitz.
