Dartmouth Health Chief Health Information Officer
Peter D. Solberg, MD, assumed the Chief Health Information Officer position in September 2015, after serving as the Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center and Clinics Medical Director of Information Systems for the prior three years. Solberg partners closely with the chief information officer to oversee the spectrum of Dartmouth Health information technology, with a particular focus on the clinical tools. He was closely involved with maintenance of the Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center and Clinics homegrown electronic medical record "CIS," before participating in the Epic selection and implementation process culminating in April 2011. He is one of a small group of physicians from across the country board certified in the Medical Informatics sub-specialty.
A graduate of Stanford University in Palo Alto, California, and (after an interlude teaching English in China) the UCSF School of Medicine in San Francisco, CA. Solberg trained in internal medicine at UCSF's San Francisco General Hospital. With a clinical interest in hospital medicine and HIV care, he joined the UCSF faculty, subsequently moving to Uganda in 2001 with the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to spend three years developing and studying low-resource setting HIV treatment protocols. He joined Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center and Clinics in 2005 and practiced Hospital Medicine for 15 years; he continues to maintain an active HIV practice as his information technology role has evolved.
