Matthew Chambers

Matthew has been Chief Information Officer of Baylor Scott & White Health, the largest
not-for- profit healthcare system in Texas, since our organization was formed from the
merger of Baylor Health Care System and Scott & White Healthcare in 2013. He is
responsible for designing and deploying the next generation clinical architecture to
enable BSWH to meet the triple aim of increased access, lower per-capita costs and
improved population health. Prior to the merger, he was the CIO of Scott & White
Healthcare and led the implementation of the fully integrated enterprise electronic
medical record system, achieving HIMSS Analytics Stage 7 at five hospitals and 23
clinics at a nationally recognized rapid pace. He also guided the organization during the
launch of its first online patient portal called MyChart. During his tenure, his organization
has been recognized as Most Wired - Most Improved by Hospital & Health Networks
and 5 Best Hospital IT Departments by Healthcare IT News.
Matthew focuses his efforts on leading strategic initiatives to transform the technology
department to be flexible, adaptable and responsive to customer needs, while
optimizing IT operations and identifying cost efficiencies. As CIO of Baylor Scott &
White Health, he has led the organization in further progress towards creating a
connected network of providers through the utilization of a health information exchange
(HIE). The HIE will be available in clinics and hospitals across Baylor Scott & White,
including providers in our accountable care organization—Baylor Scott & White Quality
Alliance. By providing access to patient data from multiple electronic medical record
systems and other sources, providers will be able to reach patient clinical information in
a timely and secured manner. The HIE is expected to improve accuracy and reduce
duplicate testing, medication errors and readmissions.
Prior to joining Baylor Scott & White, Matthew held leadership positions at KPMG,
BearingPoint and James Martin & Co. Throughout his career, he led large-scale
business and technology transformation projects with a focus on M&A, post-transaction
IT transformation, IT Strategy and Governance architecture.
Chambers earned a B.B.A. in Management Information Systems from the University of
Texas in 1993. He is a Certified Healthcare CIO from the College of Healthcare
Information Management Executives (CHIME) and certified as a Professional in
Healthcare Information and Management Systems from the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS).
