James Noga has been appointed chief information officer of Partners HealthCare System, a 12-hospital Boston-based organization that includes Brigham and Women's Hospital and Massachusetts General Hospital. He replaces John Glaser, who left Partners last summer to become the CEO of the health services business unit of Malvern, Pa.-based Siemens Healthcare.
Partners names Noga CIO
Noga, 55, has been the CIO of Massachusetts General since 1997 and had been working as Partners' acting CIO since Glaser's departure. He was named to the position permanently after a long search that included "some of the top healthcare executives in the nation," according to a Partners news release.
Noga has worked at Massachusetts General since being hired as director of clinical applications in 1990. According to the release, Partners has invested $2 billion in its health IT system over the past 10 years.
