IT Healthcare Executive Duties
An IT healthcare executive is expected to oversee all of the day-to-day tasks and procedures of the health facility’s IT department, as well as manage a group of IT health professionals underneath them. Most of an IT healthcare executive’s duties consist of creating, diagnosing, managing and deploying security systems, analytics, patient engagement networks, remote patient monitoring devices, HER processes, revenue cycle management systems and population health services.

An IT healthcare executive must have an understanding of health systems, current trends in medical practice, population health and patient communication. While a professional in this position will most often be communicating with other members of their IT team as well as other hospital staff, they may be asked to interact with patients for systems testing purposes.
