How Hospital CIOs Can Embrace Translational Informatics
October 24, 2007, 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm CDT
Keith Strier, JD, Rosemary Ferdinand, PhD, and Mitch Morris, MD, Principals, Deloitte Consulting LLP. There is growing recognition that the field of medicine must absorb innovation more quickly. Accelerating the translational cycle – the path from discovery to dissemination – requires both organizational re-alignment and technical investments. This cycle involves moving knowledge from the bench to the bedside to the clinic to the community, and then back to the bench. In this presentation we discuss how hospital CIOs can play a critical role in this process, bringing clinical innovation through this cycle from the lab to the front-line, by implementing an informatics capability that directly benefits patients by increasing collaboration between the research and clinical enterprises.
