Mr. Dorst has led the IT department at Tahoe Forest Health System since September 2014. Under his leadership, Tahoe Forest Health System successfully transitioned to a single electronic health record platform and most recently modernized its patient care infrastructure, improving the network performance across the health system’s two hospitals and six specialty clinics.

These leaders have received recognition by organizations such as the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society and the College of Healthcare Information Management Executives (CHIME).
