Jake Dorst, CIO

Jake Dorst, TFHS CIO, Recognized

Becker's Hospital Review recently presented its first edition of 100 Community Hospital CIOs to Know. Jake Dorst, Chief Information and Innovation Officer at Tahoe Forest Health System was named with this prestigious designation.

Hospitals and health systems rely on CIOs and IT department leaders to develop a long-term technology strategy and oversee EMR implementation and support, telehealth, health information exchanges, cybersecurity and more. Those who lead a community hospital or health system's IT department and functions face unique challenges in their efforts to connect with patients, physician offices and other care settings—often across broad geographies using limited resources.

The professionals on the Becker’s list of 100 are set apart by the outstanding recognitions they've earned and exciting new projects they're piloting. Many individuals on this list are members of the Health Integration and Management Systems Society, and their workplaces earned spots on Hospitals & Health Network's Health Care's Most Wired list in 2017.

The Becker's editorial team solicited nominations and conducted internal research to develop this list. Individuals and organizations represented did not pay and cannot pay for inclusion. For the complete list, go to Becker's Hospital Review.
