James Brady, PhD, CHCIO, CISM, CRISC, CISSP, FHIMSS is the Vice President, Information Security & Infrastructure/Operations and CISO at Fairview Health Services.
I'm excited to have joined the executive IT team at Fairview Health Services, an outstanding nonprofit, integrated health system based in Minneapolis, Minnesota, and part of the M Health Fairview partnership and collaboration, consisting of Fairview, the University of Minnesota, and University of Minnesota Physicians. Prior to joining mHealth Fairview, I had the honor and privilege of serving the amazing people of Los Angeles County, leading and empowering the talented IT staff within the Department of Health Services (DHS), and partnering with the dedicated leaders and staff within many of the Los Angeles County's 34 departments. Before joining DHS, I had the wonderful opportunity of being a part of the Kaiser Permanente organization, and am humbled to have been a recipient of the Becker's Hospital Review 2019, 2018, and 2017 Lists of Hospital and Health System CIOs to Know, the Los Angeles Business Journal 2015 CIO of the Year Award, HIMSS 2015 Distinguished Fellows Service Award, and HIMSS SoCal 2015 Chapter of Year and President Level Advocacy Awards. As a highly successful IT executive with significant experience leading technology and security initiatives in complex academic medical center and multi-hospital healthcare settings, I strive to be a committed, transparent and strategic thinker with a track record of quality, systematic decision making, providing transformational and business-focused value in this new age of the digital economy and consumerism. A proven leader with the ability to build strong relationships, I am passionate about communicating effectively and building consensus across the organization.
