Chief Medical Information Officer Position Overview

The CMIO for Renown Health stands on the disruptive boundary where technology meets patient safety and quality, patient and provider engagement, and cost-effective care. This CMIO will harness the power of technology to lead healthcare delivery into the future.

This individual will closely align with Renown leadership and will partner with physician leadership to ensure the successful adoption of technology.

Renown Health continues to expand in rural health, receiving a Hemsley Grant to provide patient management for thirteen critical access hospitals in the region.

This position is not only about overseeing the Epic EHR, but also an opportunity to join Renown, build relationships, and lead a successful informatics program.

Renown Health will be launching two innovative programs:

1) Home for Dinner: Each specialty will have a part-time CMIO to collaborate with physicians in their specialties to find shortcuts, smart sets, and other areas to help physicians be more effective and reduce burnout.

2) Ambulatory SWAT team: Each site will have a survey about 4 weeks before an on-site to find out issues so the informatics team can work with clinic and strive to resolve 80% of their issues in a week and up to 95% within a month. With multiple teams, they plan to cover each ambulatory practice within 10 months and then start over.

To be successful with these programs, the CMIO will need to build and oversee physicians from each specialty.
