Are CIOs Ready to Become the “2.0” CIOs We Need? Let’s Discuss
What’s becoming clear is that CIOs, to be successful going into the future, will need to be true organizational leaders, able to sit down with their fellow c-suite executives as peers, and to be able to help them understand what types of technology, and what specific technological tools, can help them achieve both overall organizational objectives, as well as the broadest objectives of the purchasers and payers of U.S. healthcare, as they demand more and more vociferously that providers provide them with value for the $3.6-trillion-plus that they’re spending now every year—with that $3.6 trillion expected to go up to $6 trillion a year in the next several years.
In other words, the “2.0” CIO has to be the farthest individual possible from the circa-1989 “tech order taker” manager. She or he must be a true, organization-wide, leader.
