CMIO News to Know for the Week of Feb 17th

This article from Academic Medicine: (https://journals.lww.com/academicmedicine/Abstract/publishahead/Commercial_Interests_in_Continuing_Medical.97308.aspx) is the controversial one for the week. Proposing to remove CME from EMR continuing education will be a detriment to physicians. I would love to hear back from you on this issue, or go to LinkedIn and engage with the post I made on the topic.

Other topics include the rise of virtual medical assistants, ransomware attacks, the cost of good IT talent, and navigating a merger as a CIO. As always, I take a look at things through a CMIO lens.
