  2. Working with the Faculty INformatics Anesthesiology Leadership (FINAL) Team to determine key directions for our outcomes research opportunities
  3. Continuing to align Department of Anesthesiology IT support with DHTS and SOM resources while maintaining the unique, collaborative and productive environment of the department’s integrated academic home

“Finding the right person to work with our faculty and Dr. Sanderson in his role as CAIO was key to the success of our investment in information technology. I am excited to welcome Samila to the team as the culmination of a yearlong nationwide search. She brings the experience and expertise that will allow us to move forward quickly in an area of great importance both to us and our patients.” – Mark F. Newman, MD
