Crouse Hospital Appoints Chief Information Officer

08/20/14

Rose newsCrouse Hospital has appointed Kim Rose as Chief Information Officer for the hospital and its affiliated entities. Rose most recently served as director of information technology for the hospital.

 

In her new role as CIO, Rose will work with senior leadership to provide vision and strategic direction in the continued development and implementation of Crouse’s system-wide health information technology operations. This includes working with not only the hospital, but also affiliates Crouse Medical Practice and Community Memorial Hospital in Hamilton, as well as developing capability to enhance information sharing between Crouse and community physicians.  

 

“How healthcare is delivered is changing rapidly, and success will be dependent on systems and technology that allow for integration, greater connectivity and data sharing across the entire healthcare continuum, not just the hospital,” states Crouse CEO Kimberly Boynton, who adds that the increasing emphasis on population health management, physician integration, patient engagement and clinical quality all require a high-level strategic health IT focus.

 

Rose holds a master’s degree in information resource management from Syracuse University. She previously served as director of information technology for Crouse Medical Practice, PLLC, and PPC, both in Syracuse.

 

She has provided leadership and direction to the hospital’s Information Technology Department since 2012, overseeing numerous major technology initiatives including a new Emergency Department patient tracker system, the hospital’s MyHealthChart patient portal, computerized physician order entry and medication administration systems. She currently is leading the implementation of Soarian, the hospital’s electronic medical records system, which is scheduled to go live in 2015.

 

Adds Boynton, “As we continue to develop the Crouse integrated delivery network – one of our key strategic initiatives – strong, focused senior-level leadership in health information technology is critical for the future growth and continued success of our organization.”
