San Francisco Business Times

Larry Lotenero, chief information officer at UCSF Medical Center, is stepping down in late June after a decade on the job, according to UC San Francisco officials. The move comes after UCSF went $100 million over budget on a long-delayed and circuitous electronic medical records implementation. In a May 23 email to staffers at the medical center, CEO Mark Laret said that Lotenero was retiring in late June, and that Chief Operating Officer Ken Jones would take “immediate responsibility” for UCSF Medical Center’s IT operations.
