CLEARWATER, Fla., Aug. 23 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- BayCare Health System, the largest community-based health care system in the Tampa Bay area, today announced that Tim Thompson has been appointed Chief Information Officer (CIO), effective Sept. 7, 2010. Thompson joins BayCare from the Methodist Hospital System in Houston, where he also served as CIO and Senior Vice President.

At BayCare Thompson will be responsible for developing and implementing strategic information services (IS) initiatives. He also will oversee BayCare's clinical transformation to an electronic medical record (EMR) system.

"Tim offers an effective balance between IS operations and strategic thinking," said Tommy Inzina, chief administrative officer at BayCare Health System. "His background and experience with large, complex multi-hospital systems that are similar to BayCare make him a natural fit for our organization."

Prior to working at Methodist, Thompson was the CIO and Senior Vice President at both Adventist Health System in Orlando and Palmetto Health in Columbia, South Carolina. In addition he held senior management positions at The Cleveland Clinic, Dynamic Healthcare Technologies, Inc. and Proctor Healthcare Incorporated.

During his career, Thompson has implemented EMRs in more than 30 hospitals. While at Adventist, he successfully rolled-out EMRs in 27 hospitals in 10 states over the course of four years. Most recently at Methodist, Thompson launched a Health Information Exchange, which enables physicians and hospitals to access patient information and data from a centralized location.

"BayCare is well known in the health care industry, and I am excited to become a part of a leadership team that is looking to drive technology advancements for the benefit of its patients," said Thompson. "The system's commitment to technology can make a tremendous difference for patients, and improve quality and safety."

Thompson earned his Bachelor of Management degree from the University of Illinois and is a member of the College of Healthcare Information Management Executives (CHIME) and Healthcare Information and Management System Society (HIMSS).

Thompson and his wife are looking forward to relocating to the Tampa Bay area. They have two adult daughters who live in Orlando.
