The Information Technology (IT) department of the Mount Sinai Health System transforms and supports excellence in patient care, research, and education through a unified team that advances science and medicine with innovative leading-edge solutions.
We are focused on providing robust, scalable, innovative, and secure IT solutions across the Mount Sinai Health System, with a common experience for physicians, faculty, students, staff, and patients. We also recognize that transforming data into actionable information and knowledge is key to achieving the mission of the Health System. We quickly combined our IT leadership teams, governance structures, and capital planning to facilitate all integration efforts moving forward. We also have evaluated our technology infrastructure, applications, processes, and staff to develop integration plans that are aligned with the strategic objectives of Mount Sinai leadership.
In the future, our goal is to have a single patient record no matter where in the Mount Sinai Health System a patient is seen. This enables better and safer care, and provides physicians and other providers with the information they need, when they need it.
This will be accompanied by consolidated systems for registration, scheduling, and patient billing for a better and more efficient patient experience.
For staff, consolidated systems for finance, human resources, and other internal functions will provide consistent information, processes, and tools across the organization.
