In my previous role as the Chief Informatics Officer for Imaging, Cleveland Clinic modernized IT systems for four new hospital acquisitions and replaced radiology PACS for the enterprise’s 4 million imaging exams yearly.

At the ACR, I’ve championed AI in radiology and cybersecurity efforts through the Informatics Advisory Council and Commission on Informatics. Leading SIIM’s Security Subcommittee, I’ve tackled healthcare cybersecurity intersections. At the RSNA, I contribute to radiology future through the Informatics Policy Committee, and as SPIE’s Healthcare Informatics Program Committee past chair, I’ve spurred innovation. These positions have fueled my growth and impact in the field.
