April 21, 2021: What does CIO of Healthcare actually mean these days? A lot of companies have gone through a metamorphosis which means they’re not just looking for a CIO that understands informatics, workflow, systems and architecture. They need a leader who also understands business. Who understands strategy. Who understands innovation and collaboration. Who understands where things are going and how marketing, the patient experience and digital tools all play into it. Aaron Miri, CIO for Dell Medical School and UT Health Austin breaks down what it takes to be a next generation CIO. What is UT Health’s model for innovation? What is their remote patient monitoring strategy? How do they address tech debt? What is their approach to interpretability? And what will digital healthcare look like in the future?
