Dr. Paveljit Bindra serves in the dual capacity of chief medical officer and chief information officer for Citrus Valley Health Partners.
“He's a new breed,” says Robert Curry, president and CEO of the three-hospital, 620-bed healthcare system. “He's passionate about evidence-based medicine and medical informatics. Evidence-based medicine is probably in his DNA.”
Curry also describes Bindra—who led the hospital system's successful march toward Stage 1 meaningful-use compliance in the first year of the federal electronic health-record incentive payment program—as “consistent and thorough. … And he brings to it an IT user mentality, not just an IT technology perspective.”
