Mark Lantzy recently joined IU Health as senior vice president and CIO. In his new role, Lantzy will have overall responsibility for information services (IS), including strategic planning, operations and project delivery, for IU Health’s 16-hospital system, health plans and physicians network.
“I am very pleased to join an organization so important to the lives of our patients and Hoosiers,” Lantzy said. “There is a rapidly growing technology sector in Indianapolis and the opportunity to bring innovation and new approaches to our health information technology capability is exciting.”
Lantzy, who has a 20-year career in health information services, comes to IU Health after serving as chief operations officer and CIO for Gateway Health, a Pittsburgh-based managed care organization for Medicaid and Medicare members. Previously Lantzy held leadership positions for WellCare Health Plans, Aetna, and Accenture.
Mark is a dynamic, accomplished leader who will help recruit top talent to our 600-person information technology team and leverage IU Health’s IT infrastructure to benefit patients and providers,” said Ryan Kitchell, executive vice president and chief administrative officer.
Lantzy takes over from Bill McConnell, who is headed for retirement. As CIO, McConnell led statewide IS integration projects, built IU Health’s data warehouse and decision support and analytics capabilities, stabilized IS infrastructure and systems performance, and worked to expand research systems capabilities with IU School of Medicine and associated institutes.
McConnell is staying on for several months to serve in a human relations role at IU Health.
