IT Business Operations Affinity Group


Whether referred to as Chief of Staff, Office of the CIO, or IT Business Operations, these professionals keep all the plates spinning—from budgets and FTEs to contracts and vendor relations. As IT moves from being a “utility” under Finance to a full partner in today’s healthcare organizations, interdependence has increased: The business depends on IT…and IT depends on the business. And as with every facet of healthcare today, IT Business Operations is being tasked to do more with less. With higher turnover rates, fewer applicants, remote work opportunities, and differing philosophies of running IT as a business, SI Member professionals are turning to each other for input, insights and lessons learned to focus on the mission of health and care.
