CACI International Inc. has hired Dr. Keith Salzman to serve as chief medical information officer within the company’s Transformation Solutions Group.
Salzman, an innovative physician, will support the continuing expansion of CACI’s presence in the health IT and clinical informatics arenas, the company said in an announcement today.
The physician has more than 21 years of success delivering quality care to patients, pioneering informatics in the U.S. Army, and facilitating health information interoperability between the Military Health System and the Veterans Affairs Department.
In his previous position as CMIO at Madigan Army Medical Center in Tacoma, Wash., Salzman established the Informatics Division in the Military Health System, a global medical network within the Defense Department that provides health care to all U.S. military personnel worldwide.
His model for delivering automated solutions improved clinical-business outcomes and helped end users perform their jobs effectively through streamlined data capture and delivery, according to the statement.
Under Salzman’s leadership, the Madigan Informatics Division grew from a team of 10 to more than 100 with a $3 million budget rising to $6 million over six years.
As an expert and thought leader, Salzman adds a clinical perspective to CACI’s group of functional subject matter and health IT professionals.
CACI International, of Arlington, Va., ranks No. 16 on Washington Technology’s 2010 Top 100 list of the largest federal government contractors.
