Kaiser Permanente's IT chief to retire

Diane Comer, chief information and technology officer of Oakland, Calif.-based Kaiser Permanente is set to retire in January. 

Ms. Comer, who has served in the role since 2020, has led multiple IT initiatives, such as implementing telephony infrastructure and shifting teams to a virtual landscape to accelerate the health system's digital-first approach, according to an Aug. 15 press release from Kaiser. 

After her departure, the health system's IT organization will report to Yazdi Bagli, who is the executive vice president of enterprise business services for Kaiser. 

In late 2023, Kaiser plans to look for a new chief information and technology officer, who will continue to report to Mr. Bagli.

Kaiser said IT will continue to report to Mr. Bagli so that the teams can work together to increase the quality, speed and productivity of the health system's services.
