THREE CMIOs ON THEIR NEW AND CHANGING ROLE CMIO ROUNDTABLE CMIO of St. Charles Health System Mary Dallas, MD. CMIO of St. Charles Health System (Bend, Ore.) Neil R. Kudler, MD. Vice President and CMIO of Baystate Health (Springfield, Mass.) Mark Wess, MD, MSc. CMIO of Greenville (S.C.) Health System Participants 65 About 40 percent of hospitals and health systems employ a CMIO, according to HIMSS' 2014 Leadership Survey. While a definite increase from the one-third of organizations that reported having a CMIO on the payroll in 2013, CMIOs are still a relative newcomer to the C-suite. CMIOs are becoming increasingly necessary as hospitals and health systems struggle not only with the adoption and use of electronic health records and other IT systems but then with using the trove of data IT systems provide to improve care delivery. Usually physicians, CMIOs fill a unique niche of being a tech-focused executive with a deep knowledge of patient care processes, allowing them to bridge the gap that often exists between clinical and IT departments. Here, three CMIOs share their thoughts on how the new role is already changing, their biggest challenges and proudest moments and advice for other CMIOs.
