The ACGME has named it first chief information officer (CIO) to lead the creation of its information services strategy to innovate its current processes and explore new opportunities to serve the GME community.

Beginning in January 2020, Bruce A. Metz, PhD, CHCIO, will be lead the development of “an information architecture to support enhanced data collection and analyses, data sharing agreements with national databases, and strategic research efforts, and will look to incorporate emerging technologies, such as artificial intelligence,” according to the ACGME’s announcement.
“With the ACGME's scope and scale of activity, advances in technology present extraordinary opportunities to deliver value in new ways, such as by transforming how residency and fellowship programs are accredited across the nation, fostering innovation and enhancements in clinical learning environments, and ultimately improving the delivery and quality of healthcare and physician education,” Metz said.
