In his role as health system CIO, Ulett is deeply committed to training his staff to understand the landscape of healthcare, and how each person’s efforts fit into delivering care to patients.
“We are constantly evolving and trying new technologies,” he says. “For example, we are moving to a video blog to be able to provide 3-minute educational sound bites to the staff on issues like the 2-day rule and revenue cycle technologies. Instead of a 20-page status report monthly, a 3-minute sound bite increases our bandwidth using new technology. I want to leave some day having raised the technical and professional business healthcare knowledge of the entire IT staff.”
