He is also an active member of CHIME, a cybersecurity advisor to a healthcare startup company & an active speaker in the field of HIT.
The results of this close collaboration between the hospital & ITS can be astonishing: In his current role, Michael oversees all aspects of ITS and has led major organizational transformations. During Michael’s time serving as CIO, he led and designed the first data center while then adding virtualization efforts that reduced costs 56 percent & improved uptime from 59 to 99 percent which increased business productivity, operating efficiencies and enhanced services while reducing operating expenses. This direct collaboration allows the ITS team to innovate pragmatically & remain a leader and disruptor in Health IT.
Under Michael’s guidance and leadership, Mt. San Rafael Hospital became one of the leading community hospitals in Colorado for leveraging advanced technology to enhance the patient and provider experience.
In the healthcare, cyberterrorism can appear in a variety of forms. It can bring down a hospital computer system or publicly reveal private medical records. Whatever shape it takes, the general effects are the same: patient care is compromised, and trust in the health system is diminished.
Evidence suggests that cyber threats are increasing and that much of the U.S. healthcare system is ill equipped to deal with them.
Securing cyberspace is not an easy proposition as the threats are constantly changing, but it’s critical to recognize that cyberterrorism should be part of a broader information technology risk management strategy.
In this session, Michael Archuleta, recently recognized as a Top Hospital and Health System CIO, reviews case studies and the tremendous negative effects a cyber-attack could have on a healthcare organization. It’s scary stuff, but Michael will also share his thoughts on the best practices healthcare organizations can adopt to protect themselves – and their patients – from such attacks.
