UMass Memorial CIO Addresses MassTLC Members
Dr. George Brenckle, CIO of UMass Memorial Health Care addressed members of the MassTLC healthcare community to discuss the hospital's new initiatives in information technology and some of the biggest challenges to overcome in 2010. UMass Memorial started actively upgrading its information technology in 2008, addressing both the ambulatory and the acute care setting. Dr. Brenckle provided an overview of efforts to integrate both within the UMass system and with the Central Massachusetts community.
