Schade Named CIO at University of Michigan Health System

August 25, 2012

Congratulations go out to Sue Schade for being named CIO of the University of Michigan Hospitals and Health Centers, after 12 years as CIO of Harvard Medical School teaching affiliate Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston.

Schade, who served on the editorial advisory board of the publication I worked at for 12 years, always provided great editorial/artcile suggestions and insight for the publication. She was instrumental in getting an excellent cover story for the publication and assisted our photographer in gainining access to key decision-makers for his photo shoot.

Schade has spent 25 years in health IT management, including positions that required increasing management responsibility at Advocate Health Care, a large integrated delivery system in the Chicago area.

In her role at U-M, Schade will provide direction and oversight for information technology initiatives in U-M hospitals and clinics.

“We’ve accomplished a tremendous amount of work at Brigham and Women’s and I’m excited about the opportunity to start a new chapter at the University of Michigan,” said Schade, a Minneapolis native.

“I’m pleased to be joining this premier health care system and highly regarded academic medical center. Its mission and agenda for an integrated health care system was a big attraction for me.”

Schade assumes her new role on November 1. She joins the U-M Health System as it enters a new era of patient care, with the recent launch of a new electronic health record system MiChart – a key investment in clinical informatics to keep UMHS at the forefront of innovative medical care, education and research.

“Information is at the heart of everything we do in patient care and has become increasingly important during a rapidly changing health care environment,” says Doug Strong, CEO of the University of Michigan Hospitals and Health Centers.

“Sue comes from an organization that is a leader in health care information technology where she has played a significant leadership role in improving patient care with electronic information. We are very pleased to be able to bring her experiences and leadership capabilities to the U-M Health System.”
