Thanks to George Reynolds, CMIO and CIO extraordinaire, who put together a dream team of CMIO leaders to facilitate a course for up-and-coming leaders in the area of informatics. This year, CHIME (the College of Healthcare Information Management Executives) opened up the future-CMIO candidates for this course, to nurse, pharmacist, and other clinical informatics candidates. Our 30 participants this year made this 6-week, 2-hours-live-with-weekly-homework a blast to teach and discuss. That course concluded this week.

We tackled: governance, high performance teams, creating value, leading change, and other topics.
And of course, what would an informatics session be, without some ukulele. Thank you to Amy Sitapati from UCSD, Brian Patty, former CMIO at Rush, and George Reynolds, former CMIO and CIO, and now with CHIME, singing with me.
CMIO’s take? Make music! Make art! You can clearly see, we are not gonna win any awards with our skills, but we sure had a great time putting this together. I am grateful for colleagues willing to stick their necks out to sing with me.
