YRMC welcomes new chief medical information officer
A new chief medical information officer will work with Yuma Regional Medical Center physicians to improve patient care under YRMCCare, the hospital's electronic health record system.
Dr. Robert Budman's role is to improve physicians' use of electronic health records with the goal of positioning YRMC as one of the most technologically advanced hospitals in the nation, according to a hospital news release.
In order to achieve that goal, the hospital will continue to review and redesign patient care processes to “ensure the best outcome for every patient every time.”
“I am pleased that Dr. Budman has joined our leadership team,” said Gene Shaw, vice president of information technology and chief information officer.
“His knowledge and understanding of how to utilize technology, such as the electronic health record, to increase patient safety and quality will serve as a tremendous asset to our hospital and community.”
Budman most recently served as the director of clinical content at Catholic Health East in Newtown Square, Pa. In this position, he streamlined care standard and created new ways to communicate electronically based on the most current national standards.
Budman completed his medical doctorate at the Medical University of South Carolina. He holds an MBA in health care management as well as a certificate in health care informatics from the University of Phoenix.
He is board-certified in family medicine with more than 22 years of clinical experience and 14 years of experience using electronic health records.
In his spare time, Budman likes to surf, bike, travel and spend time with his family.
