Winter 2018 Newsletter - CxO Wrap Up

By Jason Johnson, Programs Committee Chair

The rainy weather didn’t dampen our great time at Citrix HQ for our 5th Annual CxO Summit in November! Those who attended heard about the industry outlook from Gartner’s perspective during Vi Shaffer’s engaging keynote.

We also hosted Todd Dunn, Director of Innovation for Intermountain Health, for his take on how innovation isn’t the only path to transformation. He discussed design-thinking and offered some simple tools that can be used to quickly put together a business model or vet the value proposition of a new idea. From there, policy experts debated on which comes first: innovation, transformation, or policy, and the jury is still out!

The day concluded with an engrossing session by Jon Manis, Chief Information Officer at Sutter Health, in which he discussed the future of healthcare and how the industry must change to meet the needs of the modern consumer.

On top of all of the powerful speakers, we took the opportunity to recognize HIT leaders in Northern California who received honors this year including: Stanford for achieving HIMSS Stage 7 and the Davies Award, nearly a dozen facilities for receiving the Most Wired award, and Sutter Health and John Muir Health for receiving three and four star ratings from Healthgrades. In addition, we recognized Jon Russell, CIO of John Muir Health, for receiving Bay Area CIO of the Year, and our own Santosh Mohan, Head of Athena’s MDP Labs, for receiving the HIMSS Founders Leadership Award and for his recognition as a Rising Star by Becker’s Hospital Review.
