Joel Klein: Making the Most of IT
With Joel Klein, Chief Information Officer, Maryland Medical System
Joel Klein is the Chief Information Officer of Maryland Medical System, where he oversees the operation of medical information technology for over 29,000 employees in fourteen different hospitals and fifteen different practice locations. As CIO, he uses his experience as an emergency physician and his technological expertise to make medical technology work for the people who use it every day. We discuss a day in the life of the CIO of such a large company, and how experience as a physician can give senior officers an advantage. Joel also talks about how COVID vaccination programs work on the IT side— both in the early days of the pandemic, and now.
