Lifespan, Rhode Island’s largest health care system, has named Ian Hyatt to lead its technology group. As vice president and chief technology officer, Hyatt will focus on enhancing Lifespan’s technical infrastructure and will look for ways to incorporate the organization’s technology vision with its business imperatives, all while finding ways to enhance patient care.
“Ian comes to Lifespan with broad experience in managing complex technology environments in a number of diverse and demanding settings. I’m thrilled to have him join our information systems team at Lifespan,” said Carole Cotter, Lifespan’s chief information officer and senior vice president. “Through Ian’s vast experience and knowledge base, Lifespan is better positioned to adapt to a constantly changing technology environment that requires us to always be ahead of the curve with an eye toward finding ways to improve patient care.”
