Abstract

Background: The Chief Information Officer (CIO) and Chief Clinical Information Officer (CCIO) are now established senior roles in hospital practice. With increasing emphasis on optimising use of routine health data for secondary purposes and research, additional skills are required as part of the senior information officer team, particularly in academic health care institutions. // Objective: Here we present the role of the Chief Research Information Officer (CRIO), as an emerging, and important, component of the senior information team. // Method: We review recent publications describing the composition of the senior information team, including CIO and CCIO roles, and present evidence for development of the CRIO as a distinct component of the team. // Results: The CRIO is emerging as an additional senior role in academic healthcare institutions, whose roles include leadership of the informatics strategy and optimisation of routine data collection systems for research data use. Such individuals should be senior clinicians with experience in informatics, in addition to having established research expertise and knowledge of research processes, governance and academic networks. // Conclusion: The CRIO is emerging as a distinct senior information leadership role in conjunction with the already established positions of CCIO and CIO, who together, can provide optimal oversight of digital activities across the organisation.
