Dr. Todd Rowland has more than 25 years of healthcare experience which includes roles as practicing physician, CEO of health information exchange, CMIO (Chief Medical Information Officer), and most recently enterprise Senior Vice President and CIO. He has worked with multi-disciplinary teams to deliver solutions using several IT platforms which include Allscripts, Cerner, eClinicalWorks, McKesson, MEDITECH, Mirth, Optum, and other technologies.
The CHIME Opioid Task Force (OTF) was launched in early 2018 with a simple mission: to turn the tide on the opioid epidemic using the knowledge and expertise of the nation’s healthcare IT leaders. While our mission is simple, achieving it is not. Opioid addiction is a complex disease that requires long-term, if not lifetime, care from well-informed clinicians who are supported with easy-to-use and reliable tools.
