N.Y.’s Mount Sinai Health System names new CIO

Mount Sinai Health System has appointed Kristin Myers to executive vice president, chief information officer and dean for information technology.

Myers, who most recently served as Mount Sinai’s senior vice president for technology, will lead digital transformation and IT efforts across the New York City health system’s eight hospitals, medical school and ambulatory practices.

That will include work to “implement modern infrastructures, programs, and policies that maximize efficiency and facilitate communication,” said Dr. Kenneth Davis, Mount Sinai’s president and CEO, in a statement.

Myers joined Mount Sinai as a director of IT in 2004. Since then, she’s helped lead the health system’s deployments of clinical and revenue cycle systems and its transition to ICD-10 coding, among other projects.

Before joining Mount Sinai, Myers worked at consulting firms Capgemini and Ernst & Young, as well as Cerner Corp. in Australia.

Myers will replace Kumar Chatani as CIO and dean for IT, who will leave Mount Sinai in the next few weeks, according to a health system spokesperson. Chatani had worked at the health system since 2011.
