Theresa Meadows, 2013 Honoree

Senior vice president and CIO
Cook Children's Health Care System
Fort Worth, Texas
Characteristic most important in an IT hire:
Cultural fit is an important characteristic for our organization. Healthcare is a team-oriented business. It is rare that tasks are accomplished by a single individual.
Coolest current project:
A development project called PatientEXP. This tool allows us to communicate with patients via text messaging (or other alternatives) using HL7 transactions or transactions that are naturally occurring in our environment based on our information systems. It requires no intervention by clinicians or staff. We are pushing content with short codes via text related to scheduled visits, follow-up care, education and so on.
