Juan Luis Cruz on An International CIO Perspective
For the 5th episode of the CIO podcast hosted by Healthcare IT Today, we're sitting down with Juan Luis Cruz, CIO at Hospital Universitario 12 de Octubre. For those not familiar with Juan Luis Cruz, he's a hospital CIO in Madrid Spain. In this episode we learn how being the CIO internationally is different than being a healthcare CIO in the US. Plus, he shares some of the things that are the same.
Along with sharing some international perspectives on the role of CIO in healthcare, Cruz also shares some of the biggest challenges he faces as CIO. We also ask him about the best piece of advice he's been given as CIO and what innovations and technologies he's keeping an eye on to see how they can help his organization. Finally, he shares his view on how the CIO is going to change in the next 5-10 years and what a CIO should be doing to be ready.
Ambient Clinical Voice with R. Hal Baker, MD
For the 4th episode of the CIO podcast hosted by Healthcare IT Today, we're sitting down with R. Hal Baker, MD, Senior Vice President, Chief Digital and Chief Information Officer at WellSpan Health. In this episode we take a little different approach from previous episodes as we talk with Dr. Baker about a very specific technology: ambient clinical voice and his experience with the Nuance DAX solution.
This is a particularly interesting episode because Dr. Baker is the CIO of his organization, but also a practicing doctor that is using the ambient clinical voice technology himself as he sees patients. This allows him to provide both the physician perspective on ambient clinical voice technology along with his perspective as CIO.
As fate would have it, the news also dropped today that Microsoft will acquire Nuance and the technology that's talked about in this episode. I'm not sure this will change the trajectory of the product, but could actually provide Nuance with added resources to continue developing the backend AI needed to make ambient clinical voice even better.
Physician CIO Leadership with Dr. Stephanie Lahr
For the 3rd episode of the CIO podcast hosted by Healthcare IT Today, we're sitting down with Dr. Stephanie Lahr, MD, CIO and CMIO at Monument Health. Dr. Lahr offered a number of unique perspectives in this episode. First, CIO of a community-based healthcare system in South Dakota that is part of the Mayo Clinic Care Network made for some really great perspectives. Plus, she is also a physician who also doubles as the CMIO along with CIO which creates a unique relationship with her organization.
Along with these unique perspectives, Dr. Lahr also shares some of the gratifying things her team and her have accomplished in the last year and areas where they still need to grow as an organization. Plus, she shares what gives her the most hope for the future of healthcare and some advice for aspiring CIOs and aspiring women CIOs.
