Chief Information Officer Visionary: Myra Davis

senior vice president and CIO, Texas Children’s Hospital, Houston

Myra Davis has been instrumental in nurturing a data-centric culture at Texas Children’s by educating leaders and staff across the organization on how to conduct their own data analysis using tools available through the organization’s data warehouse.

This approach has not only energized performance improvement activities but also has reduced the cost of developing reports by about 70 percent, compared with the cost when IT staff had to manually pull the data from the EHR.

Davis led the implementation of a systemwide electronic health record, EDW, data analytics platform and other key IT projects. These technological advances have given physicians, nurses and others at Texas Children’s access to data that enables them to determine how to improve care for children and reduce unnecessary costs.
