Interim chief technology officer Frank Rausch's exit is the latest in a wave of turnover in the executive ranks of the health care provider's information technology department.

Sutter Health’s interim chief technology officer, Frank Rausch, has departed the company after three months in the position.

Rausch is at least the fifth executive to leave Sutter Health’s technology team in recent months. The Sacramento-based health system confirmed the departures of three other information technology executives in July. Those were senior vice president and chief information services officer Jon Manis, chief information services operating officer Stuart James and director of information services finance Randy James.

Sutter spokeswoman Liz Madison confirmed Rausch departure, but declined to say who will replace Rauch or when he left.

Rauch was named interim CTO in May, after previous CTO Wes Wright accepted a position at Imprivata, Inc., a Lexington Massachusetts-based IT security company.

On May 15, Sutter experienced an electronic emergency system failure, causing several Sacramento Hospitals to go offline. The system failure left medical staff unable to access electronic health records and administrative employees unable to access business documents and phones in some buildings.

Prior to his appointment as interim CTO, Rausch had been with Sutter Health for 14 years as technical services operations director and service line executive director.

Since last month, Rausch has been a retired consultant, according to his LinkedIn profile.
