    For many CIOs, a merger is something that happens perhaps once in a career, if at all. Leading through this sort of major change presents many challenges. Strategy, technology, policy and culture are all major considerations in ensuring that the unified entity is better than the sum of its parts.

    Tom Pacek, CIO of Inspira Health Network will share his experience as he led the merger of South Jersey Healthcare with Underwood Memorial Hospital to create a 728 bed healthcare provider in southern New Jersey. Tom will address key questions such as:

    • What were the major technology issues (network, applications, security) you had to address and what steps did you take to resolve them?
    • How do you build a merged team that is firing on all cylinders?
    • How do ensure the organization continues to move forward with needed innovation and not get bogged down with internal concerns and issues?
    • What improvements did you make to the environment?
    • How did you track progress and report it to your board over the course of the merger?
