MAYWOOD, Ill. – Becker's Hospital Review has named Arthur Krumrey to its list of “100 Hospital and Health System CIOs to Know.” Krumrey is Loyola University Health System’s vice president and chief information officer.
The publication said the list recognizes some of the most innovative and accomplished CIOs of hospitals and health systems across the country. Selected leaders have demonstrated the ability to leverage existing and new technology to further the mission of their organizations while elevating the level of patient care.
The Becker's Hospital Review editorial team selected hospital and health system CIOs based on a number of factors, including awards they have won and hospital or health system performance.
Krumrey has served at Loyola University Health System in an IT function for more than 20 years. He began his role as vice president and CIO of the system in July 2012. Before that, he served as vice president and CIO of Loyola University Medical Center.
Under Krumrey’s direction, Loyola was a leader in the Chicago area in implementing an electronic health record, which allowed the organization to standardize patient care and improve outcomes using evidenced-based medicine. The organization also was an early adopter of technology to better communicate with patients and referring physicians through information portals.
Loyola University Medical Center has been named to the “Most Wired Hospital” list by the American Hospital Association and affiliated organizations for 10 of the last 13 years, acknowledging the degree to which its processes are automated.
