Texas Health Resources has named a new system-wide chief information officer.
Joey Sudomir, who has served as the Arlington-based nonprofit provider’s deputy CIO since April, will oversee all health information technology systems among its more than two dozen hospitals and short-stay facilities. Sudomir will head initiatives to further analyze data to help bolster the system’s value based care initiatives and help Texas Health’s physician group access patient information in multiple settings, including hospital and outpatient.
He joined the organization in 2013 as a vice president over IT operations before earning the deputy CIO title in 2014. Prior to that, he was the vice president of IT for Texas Health Partners since 2008, overseeing interoperability practices among its partnerships throughout the state. Texas Health Resources achieved the federal designation of “meaningful use” under his watch, a recognition that signified that a provider had successfully implemented its IT capabilities across its properties.
He has a Master of Science in IT from the University of Texas at Dallas and received his Bachelor of Business Administration from Texas A&M University.
The previous CIO, Edward Marx, left the post in April to join the New York City-based Advisory Board Company. Sudomir has big shoes to fill: Marx in 2013 earned the John E. Gall Jr. CIO of the Year award, awarded by the College of Healthcare Information Management Executives and the Healthcare Information Management Systems Society.
