It has been an interesting year at work. The Sutter Health CIO, my boss, quit in early January to work for Perot. In the ensuing nine months, three of my peers have left the company. In late September, a permanent replacement for the CIO was finally hired.

Sutter names new CIO
Sutter Health announced Wednesday the appointment of Jonathan Manis as its new chief information officer.
Manis, who has over 20 years of experience in health care related information technology, spent the past five years at Illinois-based Provena Health, where he was system vice president of administrative services and also the CIO. Before that, he was vice president of information services at Advocate Health Center, another Illinois health system.
Manis will be in charge of Sutter Health's existing "administrative, operational and clinical support systems," according to a Sutter press release. In addition, he will oversee Sutter's future investments in patient safety technologies.
