May 20, 2020: On today’s episode of the Field Report, our guest is Cris Ross, Chief Information Officer at Mayo Clinic. In this episode, we sit down with Cris to explore what emerging from the pandemic might look like for Health IT. Cris explains how Mayo has experienced the pandemic thus far, including treatment and research, as well as the transformations their delivery of care is undergoing due to COVID-19, and how these changes will integrate into post-pandemic work. We talk about working from home, the future of remote work, priorities for Health IT both pre- and post-pandemic, and the areas in which Cris believes Mayo has been making important progress. Cris also shares Mayo’s contingency plans as both employees and eventually patients return, as well as the ways in which he believes we will come out the other side of this pandemic stronger, and better prepared.
