This is an important time for the University of Chicago Medical Center. The academic healthcare organization is almost done with its implementation of an Epic Systems electronic health record and is getting ready next year to open a 1.2 million-square-foot pavilion that will add 240 patient rooms to the main hospital, which contains 532 beds. Eric Yablonka, VP and CIO of the medical center, expects to be ready to attest to Stage 1 Meaningful Use by the fall.

Yablonka, who won the 2006 John E. Gall Jr. CIO of the Year Award from the College of Healthcare Information Management Executives, said that in the next few years, he will look for cost savings and efficiency gains while also helping to improve clinical outcomes through IT.

He also will beef up analytics for research, clinical, and business purposes to support clinical collaboration and care coordination. For example, the university's Institute for Translational Medicine seeks to speed research breakthroughs into clinical practice. "We want to go from bench to bedside," Yablonka said.
