Dr. Decker helps direct Mayo Clinic’s research, education, and clinical operations in Arizona, Florida, and Minnesota. In addition, as chief medical information officer, he oversees IT and digital strategy for the Mayo Clinic, which currently includes a new electronic health record (EHR) implementation at all Mayo Clinic facilities.

Modernizing health records

The Mayo Clinic recently implemented a $1.5 billion update to its EHR system called the Plummer Project, named for Dr. Henry Plummer, an early pioneer in Mayo's record-keeping. The effort will unify records across locations, including billing information, dramatically increasing the efficiency of care.
