Survey: Hospital CIOs more concerned with participation than reporting structure

A recent survey of hospital CIOs by finds that health IT leaders don't care so much about reporting structure so long as they have a say in high-level decisions. While 38 percent of respondents said they reported to their hospitals' CEO, 30 percent of the rest--the 62 percent who do not report to a CEO--said it didn't really matter. "A good CIO will be influential in the organization regardless of reporting structure," one respondent said. "If you have to rely on who you report to in order to get things done, it may not be the right organization for you." Post
