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.”
