Hello and thank you for taking the time to visit my new site where I would like to start sharing my experiences and journey through the transformation of healthcare from the clinician and Health IT perspective. I have been contemplating this blog for well over 2 years now and felt it needed to be perfect before I start to write. Well as you can see by the layout it isn’t anywhere near complete. I will be learning how to develop a more aesthetically pleasing site while improving my content along the way. For those of you who don’t know me I am originally trained as a family physician and learned early in my career that my passion lies at the intersection of clinical practice and health IT. I will tell you at the onset that I am far from a technician and rely on my stellar IT team to take me through the technicalities of solutions. I plan on posting issues I am facing as CIO of a large Integrated Delivery Network, new trends in Health IT, how consumer IT will change the way we engage with our patients well as my perspective on Health IT policy and trends in our environment. I look forward to engaging conversation.
