Dr. Chris Davis, CIO and CMIO, Baptist Health System – Birmingham

Find out more about Baptist Health System!

Fellow Alabamian Dr. Davis joined us to share how Baptist Health System is progressing on key initiatives like ICD-10 and MU, where they are having challenges and where they are experiencing “wins”.  Dr. Davis did such a great job as CMIO that they added CIO to his responsibilities after leading Baptist through their EMR implementation.

We discuss the following with Dr. Davis on this episode:

  • chris davisHow would you describe your pursuit of Meaningful Use? What would you do differently now that you have several years experience pursuing MU?
  • What is your take on ICD-10? Will it happen this year? Are you ready?
  • #BigData was the huge buzzword at HIMSS’14 and #PredictiveAnalytics seems to be the buzzword for this year. Do you have any current initiatives in either area?
  • We hear almost every week about a data breach in Healthcare. Is it possible for you to sleep at night when you think about the security/privacy of your data?
  • We want to give you a chance to brag a little on your team back home. Can you tell us about a successful project that you completed this year and what you learned from it?
  • What do you hope to accomplish at HIMSS’15?
