    There are a lot of good people, and a lot of patients that depend on CHI success, "CHI, make it happen!!"

    Former Employee - Enterprise Architect  in  Meridian, CO
    Former Employee - Enterprise Architect in Meridian, CO

    I worked at Catholic Health Initiatives as a contractor for more than a year

    Pros

    CHI is an approximately 19 billion dollar entity, sees more than 11 million patients a year, has MBO regions across the US, 18,000+ hospital beds, most people are very "Patient Centric or focused", good energy from long term employees about working for CHI. I enjoyed working with them, and for my manager, Director of Enterprise Architecture.

    Cons

    Mass confusion, recent departure of CIO and CTO, 13 months into an outsource to a large global Indian, managed services company, little to no core (IT) knowledge remained due to mass employee departure of core, native, technical knowledge and experience; mostly undocumented current steady state infrastructure, majority of production is in a high risk Tier 2 data center, CHI owns two Tier 4 data centers with failover capabilities, full BC, DR, data replication capabilities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate clearly the corporate mission, down to the core levels, updating teams on changes to the corporate mission, direction, etc.

    Put the $$ in the aging infrastructure, complete the migration of all CHI business critical applications out of the Tier 2 data center into the dual Tier 4, redundant BC- DR data centers.

    Hire more people to staff the internal CHI (IT) teams, enterprise architecture is critical to the success and future growth of CHI, and to eliminate large pockets of risk to the patients health, and data.
