Becker's Hospital Review recently recognized 72 community hospital CIOs in 2018. Jake Dorst, Chief Information and Innovation Officer at Tahoe Forest Health System was named with this designation.
Hospitals and health systems rely on CIOs and IT department leaders to develop long-term technology strategy and oversee EMR implementation, as well as support telehealth, data-gathering, cybersecurity and more.
Those who lead a community hospital or health system IT department and functions face unique challenges in their efforts to connect with patients, physician offices and other care settingsâ€”often across broad geographies using limited resources.
The professionals on the Beckerâ€™s list of 72 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 workplace has earned a spot on Hospitals & Health Networksâ€™ Health Care's Most Wired list in 2018.
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.
