For me as a healthcare CIO in 2021, we've really been able to move the ship from just building and delivering solutions to literally building business value. At last count there’s 26 steering committees across the enterprise because IT is now fundamental to strategy and execution of strategic initiatives.
Throughout the pandemic we had to stop dozens of IT projects and create new ones. From working from home and optimizing that to screening employees, screening visitors, to more ICU beds and new workflows to new builds and Epic. Just a tremendous amount of work.
