The Arlington-based Texas Health Resources (THR) has appointed Joey Sudomir as CIO and senior vice president, innovative technology solutions (ITS) of the organization.
Sudomir replaces Ed Marx, who resigned earlier this year. Marx was named CIO of the year in 2013, an award given by the College of Healthcare Information Management Executives (CHIME) and the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS).
Sudomir joined Texas Health as vice president, IT operations, in 2013 and was named deputy CIO in 2014. He joined Texas Health Partners in 2008 as vice president of IT, leading IT-related clinical transformation efforts for Texas Health’s joint ventures. Under his leadership, all of Texas Health’s joint-venture hospitals were able to attest to meaningful use.
Before joining Texas Health, Sudomir managed operational ownership for information technology at more than 60 hospitals for a nationally known company that operates hospitals across the country. In this role, he led efforts to standardize procedures and electronic health record implementation.
Grand Prairie, Texas-based Rainbow Children's Clinic was the victim of a ransomware attack on its IT systems in August, affecting more than 33,000 patients, according to multiple news media reports this week.
