University Hospitals, a not-for-profit system based in Cleveland, has named physician Holly Miller to oversee implementation of its $88 million electronic medical-record system, effective Feb. 1. Miller, who served since 2005 as managing director of rival Cleveland Clinic's eCleveland Clinic and its electronic medical-record system, MyChart, will serve in the new post of chief medical information officer.
Miller joined the Cleveland Clinic in 1999 as director of clinical Internet systems. Prior to that, she was a clinical-training specialist with Oacis Healthcare Systems, a California-based developer of clinical information systems, and served as staff physician with On Lok SeniorHealth Services at the University of San Francisco.
"Dr. Miller brings a wealth of experience to UH," said Achilles Demetriou, executive vice president and chief operating officer at University Hospitals. "She comes at a pivotal time as we develop and implement a systemwide electronic records program that will enhance and advance patient care, medical research and healthcare education."
Miller earned her medical degree from the Albert Einstein College of Medicine of Yeshiva University in New York City and her master's in business administration from the Institut Superieur des Affaires, Group HEC in Paris. -- By Mark Taylor / HITS staff writer
