@If you’ve worked in health IT for any reasonable amount of time, you’ve no doubt heard of Marc Probst. Probst recently retired as CIO for Intermountain, has been on a number of health IT government committees and recently received the John E. Gall Jr. CIO of the Year award. As I’ve found with a number of CIOs, their idea of “retirement” is a little different than most and the same is true with Probst who was recently announced as the new CIO of ELLKAY.
Given the career change, I thought it would be a great opportunity to sit down with one of the great health IT leaders we have in the community to understand why he made the move. Plus, we also asked Probst what were some of the lessons learned from his time at Intermountain. We also ask Probst about what a CIO leader should be doing amidst the COVID-19 crisis and dive into some of the challenges he’s seen around connectivity in healthcare. For those looking to become a healthcare CIO, we also ask Probst for advice on what helped him have such a successful career.
If you want to be inspired by a humble CIO, then you’ll enjoy this interview with Marc Probst, CIO at ELLKAY.
Here’s a look at the questions I discuss with Marc Probst in the video interview above:
You recently retired from Intermountain, what do you think was your greatest lesson learned from that job?
After you retired from Intermountain, why did you choose to work for ELLKAY as their new CIO?
We’ve been talking about lack of connectivity in healthcare for a long time, what’s holding us back and where should CIOs be focusing when it comes to connectivity in healthcare?
In what ways do you see COVID expediting innovation? What should a CIO be doing to make sure they’re making the most of this situation?
What else do you think a CIO should be watching out for to make sure their organization is ready for what comes next?
What’s been the key to you having such a successful career?
