CEO-CIO Partnership: Harnessing the Value of IT in Healthcare serves as a resource for healthcare executives, especially CEOs and CIOs, to help them form an effective partnership to leverage information technology (IT) in their organizations. The book is edited and written by both CEOs and CIOs to present both perspectives Ã¢â¬â the mainstream executive and the IT executive Ã¢â¬â and show how the two types of executives can best work together to harness the value of IT.
The book covers issues such as effective IT governance, bridging the communications gap, IT strategic alignment, getting value from an IT investment, assessing an organizationÃ¢â¬â¢s IT performance, outsourcing IT, building a knowledge-enabled organization, and centralization versus decentralization of IT. The book includes a roundtable discussion with CEOs and CIOs on the importance of establishing an effective working relationship between the two groups.
