Healthcare: CIO Services (Client confidential)


In 2016, our healthcare client experienced significant IT leadership turn-over.  Because of this staff transition, knowledge of the client’s highly customized software environment was severely limited.


The client engaged EXP’s Pat Cooke to provide CIO services including interim leadership, assistance with documenting their systems, and charting a path forward. As a former CIO of a large anatomic pathology company, Pat had significant depth of experience in relevant software systems and healthcare leadership. Working on-site from September 2016 through May 2017, he:

  • Built a documentation repository
  • Produced a detailed strategic plan
  • Led the hiring process to engage a new IT director while providing interim day-to-day management of the IT team.


Pat was able to successfully hire a permanent IT director and effectively transition leadership to the incoming resource.
