Tyler & Company Interviews Former CMIO

Tyler & Company recently spoke to Michael J. McCoy, MD, former Chief Medical Informatics Officer (CMIO) of Catholics Health East about his thoughts on the CMIO role.

Tyler & Company: Describe your organization and your former responsibilities as CMIO.

McCoy: CHE is among the largest Catholic health systems in the United States. The May 2013 consolidation of Trinity Health and CHE formed the second largest not-for-profit health system in the country, in terms of its combined $13 billion operating revenue. Only Ascension Health is larger. 

I joined CHE as its first CMIO May 2010, about the same time my then boss, Judith Persichilli, was promoted to CHE President and CEO. Judy is now interim President and CEO of the CHE-Trinity Health, Inc. system.

The delivery of that care, safety, usability and process improvement formed the core tasks of my role. My responsibilities included working with certain departments (e.g., information services and clinical transformation) and leaders in selecting, developing and implementing electronic patient record systems across the health system. I also was tasked with ensuring that clinicians engaged in the process and adopted the technology.
