The Evolving Role of the Biopharma and Medtech CIO: How to Succeed in Today's Digital Era

The role of the healthcare CIO is evolving. While CIOs still spend 80% of their time solving legacy IT issues—and just 20% of their time on digital strategy—top companies are placing more emphasis on digital, and it’s paying off.
