MD to CIO – Making the Transition with Joel Klein, Lee Milligan & Stephanie Lahr

February 24, 2021: Doctors don’t normally start out trying to become CIO’s. Technology can be intimidating, even to those who’ve trained in it. Join Lee Milligan, Asante Health, Stephanie Lahr, Monument Health and Joel Klein of University of Maryland Medical System have all made the leap from practicing physician to CIO. What was the transition like? How did their medical training help them prepare for this role? What are the benefits of being a doctor on the administrative side? What are the challenges? Are there any preconceived ideas about IT that proved to be wrong? And knowing what they know now, what suggestions would they make for future generation medical curriculums?

Key Points:

  • You have to hire great people and that doesn’t necessarily mean people that you inherit [00:16:00]
