Becker's Hospital Review recently published its 2019 edition of the â€ś100 hospital and health system CIOs to knowâ€ť list. It features some of the most impressive health IT leaders from around the country dedicated to advancements and innovation in the industry. Tahoe Forest Health Systemâ€™s Chief Information and Innovation Officer, Jake Dorst, has been honored with this recognition. Mr. Dorst led the health systemâ€™s successful effort to move to a single, unified electronic patient record to provide better-coordinated care for our community. Most recently, Mr. Dorst led the modernization of the health systemâ€™s patient care infrastructure through the implementation of the Aruba Mobile-First Network. With patient care and experience being a top priority for the health system, the new implementation improves network performance between its two critical access hospitals and six specialty clinics, simplifies IT management and saves the health system between $750,000 and $1 million in operational costs over the course of 5 years. The Beckerâ€™s list is comprised of CIOs who are leading their organizations through healthcare's technology revolution, overseeing electronic health records installations, cybersecurity, new patient portals and telemedicine advancements. These leaders have also received various awards and maintain involvement in organizations such as the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society and the College of Healthcare Information Management Executives. The Becker's Hospital Review editorial team selected leaders for this list based on editorial research and discretion, including prominent CIOs and those who head up IT for some of the nation's largest and most respected hospitals and health systems. Nominations were also considered.
