San Diego-based Scripps Health has hired Andy Crowder, formerly of MaineHealth, as its new CIO and corporate senior vice president.

According to a Scripps Health statement, Crowder has almost 30 years of IT experience. In addition to his work at MaineHealth, an integrated healthcare delivery network with 11 hospitals and 17,000 employees, Crowder served as CIO for Florida Hospital and Adventist Health System. He has deep implementation experience, including leading the successful Epic implementation at MaineHealth, Scripps officials said.

Scripps is working with Epic now on system design of its integrated enterprise electronic health record (EHR) system, with implementation planned to begin in mid-2017. The new system will replace Scripps’ current ambulatory and inpatient EHRs and revenue cycle management system.

Crowder will start at Scripps Health next month, and will work with Scripps current CIO, Patric Thomas, until Thomas’ retirement date of Feb. 20. “Andy Crowder is a seasoned IS executive who brings with him a wealth of knowledge and experience from his years of working in large healthcare systems,” Chris Van Gorder, Scripps president and CEO, said in a statement. “We are confident he is the right person to build on Scripps’ existing IS strengths and accomplishments, and to provide leadership for Scripps’ success going forward.”
