    The CMIO will be part of the executive leadership team. The candidate will drive clinical, financial and operational improvement throughout the Hospital.

The enterprise responsibilities include being part of the HIT Prioritization Committee as well as leading Enterprise Health IT projects initiatives.

    The CMIO position is a hybrid role in that the incumbent’s responsibilities will be divided between their CMIO responsibilities and the clinical responsibilities as a practicing attending physician on the medical service for which they are qualified, including in the Departments of Internal medicine, Emergency Medicine, Critical Care, Pediatrics and OB/GYN. The nature of the division will be balanced by the clinical needs of the respective medical service and the clinical qualifications of the candidate.

    Responsibilities of the CMIO will include:
    • Overseeing the continued use of the electronic health record and other clinical informatics systems, including analytics tools, to support quality and performance improvement initiatives.
    • Participating in the development and execution of the clinical improvement and development strategies, including clinical efforts for improved patient outcomes, reduce variations in care and enhance physician engagement.

    • Improving clinician adoption, acceptance and use of information technology while enhancing physician satisfaction.
    • Managing the expectations of clinical information system end-users.
    • Monitoring regulatory reporting criteria of electronic medical records systems to ensure that the organization is meeting criteria ahead of deadlines.
    • Providing direct clinical care as physician to gain a firsthand knowledge of the EHR and better appreciate the needs of the end users.
    • Escalating issues through their presence on system-wide committees such as the CMIO Council and Optimization Committee.
    • Providing outpatient care and clinical leadership at main hospital and satellite clinics.
    • Responsible for quality improvement activities and teaching medical students.
