ANN ARBOR, Mich. — The University of Michigan Board of Regents has approved the appointment of Andrew Rosenberg, M.D. to chief information officer for Michigan Medicine. Rosenberg, a practicing clinician and tenured faculty member, has served in a series of IT leadership roles over the past decade, including interim CIO since January 2016.
As the inaugural system CIO, Rosenberg will continue to enhance collaboration across all Michigan Medicine and U-M IT providers to ensure technology products and services support the institution’s research, education, and patient care mission.
“Technology, information services, and data play an increasingly vital role in solving many of the largest challenges in health care. Michigan Medicine is strategically positioned to advance and support solutions that are secure, reliable, interoperable, and cost effective,” said Rosenberg.
Rosenberg received tenure as an associate professor in anesthesiology in 2007. In 2010, he became the health system’s first chief medical information officer, where he directed the Epic EHR implementation. As interim CIO, Rosenberg integrated the U-M medical school and health system information technology groups, forming Health Information Technology & Services to support all Michigan Medicine.
“Technology leaders who come from the clinical side, like I did, are in a unique position to manage the competing priorities and needs that are particularly relevant in a large, complex academic medical center,” said Rosenberg.
Rosenberg earned an undergraduate degree in biology from U-M. He received a medical degree from Johns Hopkins Medical School, where he also completed a residency in internal medicine. Subsequently, he completed residencies and fellowships in anesthesiology, critical care medicine, and health services research as a Robert Wood Johnson Clinical Scholar. He is board certified in clinical informatics
Since 2002, Rosenberg has served in various academic and administrative positions at U-M, including director of the Division of Critical Care in the Department of Anesthesiology, director of the Cardiovascular Center Surgical Intensive Care Unit, and director of the Critical Care Medicine Fellowship Program. Rosenberg also established the Michigan Medicine Office of Clinical Informatics and served as its first executive director.
“I would like to extend my sincere appreciation to Andrew for his excellent work as interim CIO, and the ongoing evolution of our IT resources and organization,” said Marschall Runge, M.D., Ph.D., dean of the U-M Medical School, and executive vice president for medical affairs at U-M. “I have every confidence he will continue to enhance and optimize the IT support and resources that are so critical to our daily work.”
