Author - Jim Murry

As chief information officer at the University of California Irvine, Health Affairs, and associate dean of IT and informatics for UC Irvine's School of Medicine, Jim Murry is responsible for taking the electronic medical record system, begun in 1984, into the 21st century. He develops the strategy and brings together the resources that will ensure EMR success at a medical center ranked among the top 50 in the nation. The high-priority, complex implementation includes a new hospital facility and 60 specialized ambulatory clinics.
Murry's information services strategy is breaking new ground in EMR mobility. He has worked closely with the EMR system provider, Allscripts, to develop a platform using iPhones and iPads. In addition, UC Irvine's School of Medicine was the first in the nation to provide tablet computers as an innovative way to present the challenging curriculum. First-year medical students are presented an iPad loaded with all of their books, notes, presentations, and videos.
A graduate of UC Irvine, Murry has been in the information technology field since 1974 and in healthcare since 1984. At Kaiser Permanente, he served as the enterprise architect and vice president of IT national operations.
As CIO at City of Hope National Cancer Center and Beckman Research Institute, he was charged with selecting and implementing the EMR system.
Murry serves on the board of directors for the Orange County Partnership Regional Health Information Organization, a collaboration of healthcare providers whose mission is to facilitate health information exchange.
