Veteran CIO Marcy Dunn, with 30 years of experience in the health information technology arena, this fall will leave her post at Catholic Health Services of Long Island to become CIO at MaineHealth.

During her tenure at six-hospital Catholic Health Services, Dunn oversaw implementation of the Epic electronic health record system.

Now, MaineHealth, a nine-hospital delivery system, is implementing Epic, replacing a slew of EHR products including Meditech, eClinicalWorks, Sequelmed, CPSI, Cerner and Anasazi, according to CMIO Jackie Cawley.

This year, the organization has implemented Epic at three sites. Major sites awaiting implementation include Pen Bay Medical Center, Southern Maine Healthcare, Franklin Community Health Network, Memorial Hospital, and Maine Behavioral Healthcare. Full implementation is expected by 2019.

“In Marcy we get someone with a wealth of healthcare IT experience, including with the specific platforms we are rolling out across our system,” Jeffrey Sanders, COO at Maine Medical Center said in a statement.

Dunn will succeed MaineHealth CMIO Jacquelyn Cawley, who has served as interim CIO since Andrew Crowder left in January to become the new CIO at Scripps Health in California. Dunn has previous experience as a billing manager in Albany, CIO at Episcopal Health Services in Uniondale, N.Y., and as a consultant.
