Robert Bart, M.D.PITTSBURGH – Robert Bart, M.D., formerly a technology leader for the largest county in the country, has joined UPMC as the new chief medical information officer (CMIO) of the Health Services Division.

Bart will oversee the health system's efforts to advance the use of electronic health records (EHRs) and other technologies to improve the quality, safety and efficiency of patient care.

He previously served for five years as CMIO for the Department of Health Services for Los Angeles County, with a population of more than 10 million. In that role, he oversaw information technology in four hospitals and 18 large, multispecialty ambulatory locations, including hospitals affiliated with the University of Southern California and the University of California Los Angeles. Prior to joining the department, he was chief medical officer for pediatrics and academics at Cerner Corp., a leading electronic records company.

“Dr. Bart brings a unique set of technology and people skills that will drive our efforts to adopt smart technology that improves care and the patient experience,” said Joel B. Nelson, M.D., chief clinical officer, UPMC Health Services Division. “We are excited to welcome him to a team with a long history of technology leadership and innovation.”

Consistently recognized as a technology innovator by InformationWeek and a “Most Wired” health system by Hospitals & Health Networks, UPMC has invested over $1.5 billion in recent years to support technology that advances clinical outcomes and administrative efficiency. UPMC continues to pioneer the use of electronic medical records, analytics and “big data.”

In addition to his role as CMIO, Bart has been appointed associate professor with the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine’s Department of Critical Care Medicine and University of Pittsburgh Physicians, and will work clinically as an intensivist at Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC.

Bart received his medical degree from the University of Hawaii in 1990, then completed a pediatrics residency, a pediatric chief residency and pediatric critical care fellowship over the next seven years, all at Duke University Medical Center.
