Providing Information Technology Leadership for Today and Tomorrow

With organizations in education and healthcare information technology, having invested heavily in information technology, the value of top leadership in this area is vital. With the right information technology leaders, organizations can launch the integrated clinical, operational, financial and administrative solutions needed to enable and advance their long-term missions, strategic visions and innovation.

In addition, organizations seeking to improve patient quality care and experience, cut costs, solve privacy and security issues and improve the overall quality of their information technology systems must look ahead to fill emerging roles such as chief innovation officers, chief research information officers and chief data science and analytics officers.

Success Story

Kathryn McClellan - Chief Information Officer, Froedtert Health
CIO-led security upgrades embraced by Froedtert CEO, Board

Early in 2017, Froedtert Health partnered with WittKieffer to identify a new Chief Information Officer. A thorough search process ended when Kathryn McClellan, a senior level executive with over 20 years’ experience in nursing, healthcare operations and information technology was hired. She immediately began building a team to address an under-developed security/cyber-security network. Enhancements implemented within the first 48 months resulted in significant network improvements, and positioned Froedtert to achieve additional milestones in the coming months.
