IT Leadership / Staffing and Development
In the high-stress environment of IT, building and structuring a team that can function at a high-level while maintaining an atmosphere of personal development and family first can be a difference maker that goes well beyond the day-to-day.
At Bayhealth, a 3,600-employee, 400-physician health system based throughout central and southern Delaware, the health IT team has undergone dramatic change in just the past 3 years-- reworking everything from process workflow, to hiring practices. The results of these changes have resulted in higher productivity, a improved ability to retain employees, and the growth and launch Bayhealth's dedicated cybersecurity team.
In this session, hear from longtime healthcare Chief Information Officer Rick Mohnk, as he imparts lessons learned from his career over the past 40 years, and the foundational principles for structuring an IT team from the ground up. Also hear from Senior Project Manager Robin Yarnall who will discuss the department's transformation and process changes in depth, and how these changes have allowed them grow their influence across the enterprise.
