MUSC Chief Nursing Informatics Officer (CNIO)
Health Innovations is partnering with MUSC to recruit a world class CNIO.
Overview of MUSC
Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC) is a comprehensive academic medical center dedicated to patient care, research, and the education of health care professionals. Over the past 10 years, MUSC has grown into a first-class enterprise and the staff, faculty and students are driven to make a difference for people through discovery, understanding, and healing.
MUSC is undergoing a profound clinical transformation and integration across the entire enterprise, including the Hospital System, Allied Health Sciences, Research Science and the Schools of Medicine and Nursing.
These are the Imagine MUSC 2020 goals:
Patients and Families First
Diversity and Inclusion
The CNIO will play a critical role in building the relationships and shared information services that will serve as the foundation for MUSC Health.
Overview of the Role
The Chief Nursing Information Officer (CNIO) provides visionary leadership and strategy for clinical information systems across clinical care settings (inpatient, ambulatory, and procedural) throughout the enterprise and beyond.
For example, Telehealth is a critical initiative at MUSC, allowing the organization to reach patients and allied health services across the state, beyond the immediate Charleston area. The use of mobile devices is another critical part of MUSC’s connected, patient centered health delivery strategy.
The Technology and Innovation initiative at MUSC goes well beyond optimizing the use of existing tools and applications, and the CNIO is critical in building the relationships and organizational readiness to support this transformation.
The CNIO reports directly to the Chief Information Officer (CIO) with a matrixed relationship to the Chief Nurse Executive (CNE) and a collaborative partnership with the Chief Medical Information Officer (CMIO)
