Becker's Hospital Review - "The Life of a Healthcare CIO: Mount Sinai Health System's Kumar Chatani"

 – December 20, 2013  –– 

Kumar Chatani has been CIO of Mount Sinai for two years. Becker’s Hospital Review asked him how his job changed since he began. “When I started at Mount Sinai, we had two hospitals and a School of Medicine,” said Mr. Chatani. “Now we have grown to seven hospitals, a School of Medicine, a School of Nursing and an accountable care organization. So my responsibilities have more than doubled. I had a 400-person team, now I have 800 people, and my budget has more than doubled to $250 million. My job has taken on a whole new breadth — from a CIO of two hospitals and a medical school, to where I am the corporate CIO for all seven hospitals with new structure in place for site level IT directors. It has been a very exciting time for me.” Learn more
