CACI Hires Chief Medical Information Officer

ARLINGTON, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--CACI International Inc (NYSE: CACI) has hired Keith L. Salzman, MD to serve as Chief Medical Information Officer within its Transformation Solutions Group and to support the continued expansion of CACI’s presence in the healthcare information technology (IT) and clinical informatics arenas. Dr. Salzman is a physician, leader and innovator with more than 21 years of success delivering quality care to patients, pioneering informatics in the U.S. Army, and facilitating health information interoperability between the Military Health System and the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA).

CACI stands out in the government healthcare IT market as the prime developer of the VA’s Virtual Lifetime Electronic Record (VLER), a critically important, high-visibility initiative that will improve medical care and benefits for veterans. Under this contract, CACI’s health IT professionals are developing health information sharing capabilities that will enhance interoperability between the VA, DoD, and private sector healthcare providers. VLER is one of more than 50 contracts and task orders that CACI holds in the healthcare IT arena.

As a highly respected expert and thought leader, Dr. Salzman adds a clinical perspective to CACI’s group of functional subject matter and health IT professionals. In his previous position as Chief Medical Information Officer at Madigan Army Medical Center, Dr. Salzman established the premier Informatics Division in the Military Health System, a global medical network within the Department of Defense that provides healthcare to all U.S. military personnel worldwide. His model for delivering automated solutions improved clinical-business outcomes and helped end users perform their jobs effectively through streamlined data capture and delivery. Under Dr. Salzman’s leadership, the Madigan Informatics Division grew from a team of 10 to more than 100 with a budget of $3 million to $6 million over six years.

Bill Fairl, CACI’s President of U.S. Operations, said, “We are thrilled to welcome Dr. Keith Salzman to the CACI team. His understanding of clinical requirements, challenges and management adds an essential element to our already extensive healthcare IT capabilities. His expertise will give us unique insight into interfacing with the ultimate end user – the patient – and ensure that we continue providing excellent solutions to the government healthcare IT market.”

Paul Cofoni, CACI’s President and CEO, said, “Dr. Keith Salzman’s addition to our team is a significant step in CACI’s growth strategy. 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.”

Commenting on joining CACI, Dr. 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.”
