Information Management, a sister publication of Health Data Management, recently interviewed Philip Fasano, CIO and executive vice president at Kaiser Permanente:

The not-for-profit carries an operating revenue of approximately $42 billion yearly and serves more than 8.8 million members. CIO and EVP Philip Fasano joined Kaiser Permanente in 2007 and has lead a team of 6,000 IT employees  through a handful of sweeping implementations in the last few years, including the establishment of HealthConnect, the largest civilian electronic health record repository. Fasano recently discussed some of the high-level approaches he said need to be in order before any IT implementation goes out for a bid, and what, if anything, health agencies can do to plan for requirements and pools of new patients from federal health care reform.
