Sarah Kramer
Sarah Kramer's career in health care, government and the private sector have been dedicated to creating effective information management strategies and systems to advance evidence-based decision-making - from the bedside to the Cabinet table.

As Vice President and CIO at Cancer Care Ontario (CCO), Sarah has focused on implementing CCO's ambitious Information Management Strategy which will lay the groundwork to support the transformation of the organization from a radiation therapy care provider to a purveyor of evidence-based system advice, performance measurement and monitoring. Recently, Sarah has taken on a leadership role in developing and implementing the information architecture to support for the Ministry of Health and Long Term Care's Access to Services and Wait Times Strategy, lead by Dr. Alan Hudson.

Prior to joining CCO, Sarah was the CIO for the Department of Health in Nova Scotia, and has held a number of senior positions in Ontario s health care, government and private sectors.
