Opportunity of a Lifetime
I liked the analogy to juggling fire because, sure, CIOs run the risk of getting burned in so many ways. But, like the circus performer, they also can amaze their "audience" -- the business users, fellow c-suite denizens, and other shareholders -- with their business acumen and technical prowess. Those healthcare organizations that have the right CIOs in place will soar because they find, implement, and get wholesale buy-in for the right technologies to support the entire gamut of employees. As a result, they'll attain all the goals they're pursuing: Better care, lower costs, population health, etc., and the CIO him/herself will be a veritable star.
