Information Technology (IT) Department
Our Vision is to facilitate the technology required to help RLMCMH provide quality care for every patient-every time.
IT works diligently to ensure operations of the hospital depending on technology are supported 24/7, and provides leadership to maximize how internal and external information technology infrastructures are used to support the Hospital’s mission, values and Strategic Direction.
At RLMCMH, we are committed to enhancing our services with the use of technology and strategic partnerships, while protecting the privacy and security of all personal health information to which we are entrusted by our patients. Our IT Department and partners work together to ensure the highest security and safety standards are in practice, and that the use of innovation in business processes is supported by the appropriate technology.
