About the Webinar

Roy Gilbreath MD will describe the role of the Chief Medical Information Officer (CMIO) at Navicent Health, a multi-facility system, including a  large academic teaching hospital in the Southeastern USA. The role encompasses the fields of clinical and medical informatics, in partnership with the Information Technology functions of the organization. A true partnership with the Chief Information Officer (or equivalent) is critical. Quality, Safety, Health Equity, and Provider work experience are the largest drivers of success in the role. Provider and Patient facing mobility applications, Virtual Health (and telemedicine), Enterprise analytics, Clinical decision support, and Machine learning (artificial intelligence) are the main functions that the CMIO concerns themselves with in 2018. Keeping close tabs on the medical and nursing staff’s needs and concerns, and maintaining productive relationships with the IT technical staff, is the biggest challenge. 

Learning Objectives

1) Understand the end user’s perspective on using IT to meet quality, safety, equity, and efficiency goals and how this contributes to the clinician work experience, burnout, and joy in work
2) Get an idea how to facilitate the discussion between end user clinicians and technology driven IT leaders and staff.
3) Have an awareness of the major driving forces in clinical IT development and implementation and their associated business (or clinical) case.

Intended Audience

Physicians, nurses, or other clinicians with an interest or role in IT, technology, or clinical informatics and IT technology leaders interested in the application of healthcare IT to end users.
