With the incredible growth of Moffitt Cancer Center, and the new strategic plan, Impact 2028, Moffitt leadership is investing heavily in the Information Technology division to rapidly accelerate maturity and position the organization for the future. Moffitt’s strategic plan is heavily dependent on information technology; one of three pillars is the Digital Care/Discovery Accelerator led by the new Chief Digital Innovation Officer. In addition to the data organization under the direction of the Chief Data Officer, the CDIO also has responsibility for digital innovation, and the Information Technology organization under the leadership of the Chief Information Officer. IT is a core enabler to the digital strategy and will participate in the design, development and implementation of the digital plan.
In order to ensure the core functions of IT are positioned to support a rapidly growing organization and achieve the ambitions of the strategic plan, Moffitt is investing nearly $10 million dollars and recruiting over 90 new team members in IT demonstrating the organization’s commitment to technology excellence.
