Diane B. Comer, 2012 Honoree

Senior vice president and health plan business information officer
Kaiser Permanente
Oakland, Calif.
What characteristic is most important to you in an IT hire?
Drive, coupled with an ability to fit in the Kaiser Permanente culture. Candidates need to have the required background, skills and experience as well.
Career highlight:
I started as a ballet dancer and ended up in IT. There are interesting parallels between the two. As a core member of a ballet company, you are completely aligned with a team -- you know your role and you succeed by watching one another and supporting one another.
Quick ROI project:
Our document management strategy is providing 70% ROI by enabling online document fulfillment. Many proprietary point solutions are also being retired in favor of a standards-based, extensible and highly scalable document management system.
