Providing Information Technology Leadership for Today and Tomorrow

With organizations in healthcare and education 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.
