Techopedia explains Chief Medical Information Officer (CMIO)

In most cases, the chief medical information officer is a physician that has some amount of health informatics training or experience. They are known to work with or help to manage other doctors, nurses, the pharmacy and other general information in a health organization.

As the healthcare industry has been adopting electronic medical/health records (EMR/EHR), CMIOs have been in high demand. The duties performed by a CMIO differ from organization to organization. On a daily basis, a CMIO is required to evaluate an organization’s IT systems, design and apply EMR/EHR applications and software, train other staff in IT systems and analyze medical and health data for overall improvement in services.
