CACI International Inc. announced this week Dr. Keith L. Salzman will join its Transformation Solutions Group as chief medical information officer.
Salzman’s expertise in government healthcare information technology will assist CACI’s expansion into the field. His team will work to develop and implement health information sharing applications to be used with CACI’s Virtual Lifetime Electronic Record. The applications will enhance information sharing between the VA, DoD, and private-sector healthcare providers.
“Dr. Keith Salzman’s addition to our team is a significant step in CACI’s growth strategy,” said Paul Cofoni, CACI’s president and CEO. “CACI already has a strong background in medical logistics, readiness, facility management and certification and accreditation. Now, through access to major contract vehicles like the Virtual Lifetime Electronic Record and our investment in industry-leading expertise, CACI is in an ideal position to bid and win the federal government’s largest health IT contracts and become a leader in this field.”
Salzman served as chief medical information officer at Madigan Army Medical Center, where he helped create the Informatics Division in the Military Health System, a DoD medical network that provides healthcare to U.S. military personnel worldwide.
Commenting on joining CACI, Salzman said, “I am impressed by the quality of CACI’s healthcare solutions and the investment the company is making to build its healthcare IT business.”
“I look forward to contributing to CACI’s growth in this area and believe that federal agencies will benefit from selecting from our distinctive portfolio of products and services to meet the challenge of providing transformative healthcare IT solutions that save government money and deliver taxpayer value,” he added.
