U-M President Mark Schlissel announced today that he has asked Andrew Rosenberg, M.D., chief information officer for Michigan Medicine, to serve as the university’s interim vice president for information technology and chief information officer.

Rosenberg, who also is a tenured associate professor of anesthesiology and associate professor of internal medicine in the U-M Medical School, will step in for Kelli Trosvig, who announced that she is leaving U-M. She was appointed to the newly created executive position a year ago.

The president said he has asked Rosenberg to immediately oversee the university’s IT operations to ensure continuous leadership and said he would recommend to the board of regents Dec. 7 that Rosenberg be officially appointed interim vice president for information technology and chief information officer.

Schlissel said details about the about the process to identify the university’s next permanent vice president for information technology would be announced soon.

“Dr. Rosenberg brings broad and longtime experience in information technology leadership. Most recently, he was appointed chief information officer for Michigan Medicine in August 2017. He will continue in that role,” Schlissel said.

Since 2002, Rosenberg has served in a variety of progressively responsible academic and administrative positions including director of the division of critical care in the department of anesthesiology, director of the cardiovascular center surgical intensive care unit and director of the critical care medicine fellowship program.

In 2007, he was the medical director for the hospital electronic order entry project (Carelink) and then inpatient electronic health IT. In 2010, Rosenberg became the first health system chief medical information officer, where he also directed the U-M implementation of the Epic electronic health record system (MiChart).

During this time, he created and led the office of clinical informatics and became the first U-M Health IT steward, serving on the then recently-created U-M IT Council. In 2013 Rosenberg launched the information and data management division in the Medical Center IT (MCIT) organization, and became its first executive director. In January 2016, Rosenberg was asked to lead MCIT as the U-M Hospitals and Health Centers interim chief information officer and subsequently combined the IT departments of the health system and medical school in April, 2016, as the interim system chief information officer.
