Kidding. Not kidding.

Further thoughts about Becker’s Hospital review for interviewing me and talking about my role as CMIO.  I have enjoyed their series on CMIO’s, and our collective vision:

  • Clinicians, in the care of patients in an increasingly complex world
  • Technologists, who whisper to the Ghost in the Machine
  • Leaders, who learn (some via the school of Hard Knocks) how to establish a vision, drum up consensus, listen to the cacophany of feedback, hold true to important principles, compromise when needed, and slowly, slowly drag your organization toward a more perfect future. For me, this includes:
    • Creating a “Sprint optimization team” to health system leadership and getting it funded long term
    • Creating “APSO notes“, convincing a dubious physician audience and implementing it as the default progress note in our EHR
    • Creating Open Results (sharing test results with patients) over 15 years ago, convincing a dubious physician audience, and implementing it as the system-standard across the entire enterprise
    • Open Notes (sharing clinician progress notes with patients), same…
    • Open Images (sharing radiology images with patients, live as of August 2018, FUTURE BLOG POST!), same…

And, sometimes a ukulele makes it better.

CMIO’s take? For all the difficult conversations and troublesome daily fire-putting-out crises, this is an amazing job, and I get to do this with an amazing team. Thanks to ALL my colleagues.
