Dick Daniels, executive vice president and chief information officer for Kaiser Permanente's hospitals and health plans, is retiring in June.
Daniels announced his retirement in a LinkedIn post.
"I am so proud of our achievements, many of which have been on display throughout the coronavirus pandemic as we've ramped up telehealth and digital services," Daniels wrote. "I leave my post as executive vice president and chief information officer—with tremendous faith in the people and the promise of tomorrow."
Daniels has been in his position since 2015. He had previously served as Kaiser's senior vice president of enterprise shared services and senior vice president of information technology for health plan and hospital operations.
During his tenure, Daniels focused on implementing technology that allowed the Oakland, Calif.-based integrated system to reduce costs and improve quality.
"We have carefully laid a modern technology foundation that is a model for the future. I am so proud of our achievements, many of which have been on display throughout the coronavirus pandemic as we've ramped up telehealth and digital services," Daniels wrote in his post.
Before joining Kaiser, Daniels was senior vice president and divisional CIO for Capital One. Previously, he was senior vice president at JPMorgan Chase.
Under Daniels' leadership, Kaiser Permanente IT has consistently ranked highly in Computerworld's Best Place to Work in IT several years in a row. Daniels has also been honored as one of Computerworld's Premier 100 IT Leaders.
Last year, Daniels hired Prat Vemana for the new role of chief digital officer. Vemana previously served as chief product and experience officer at Home Depot.
