Texas Health Resources has appointed Joey Sudomir as chief information officer and senior vice president of Innovative Technology Solutions.
As CIO, Sudomir oversees information technology activities for the health system that treats more North Texas patients than any other.

Sudomir joined Texas Health as vice president, IT operations, in 2013 and was named deputy CIO in 2014. He joined Texas Health Partners in 2008 as vice president of IT, leading IT-related clinical transformation efforts for Texas Health's joint ventures. Under his leadership, all of Texas Health's joint-venture hospitals achieved "meaningful use," a measure used by the federal government to categorize implementation of IT capabilities in health systems.
Before joining Texas Health, Sudomir managed operational ownership for information technology at Tenet Healthcare's more than 60 hospitals. In this role, he led efforts to standardize procedures and electronic health record implementation.
For several years, Texas Health has been recognized as a national leader in implementing electronic health records and leveraging information technology to provide information that drives clinical and business decisions.
Sudomir succeeds Ed Marx in the position of CIO. Marx, a 2013 CHIME and HIMSS CIO of the Year, resigned this past April after more than seven years with the health system. He is now affiliated with The Advisory Board Company and its subsidiary, Clinovations.
