After 20 years of service, Dr. Thomas Payne, professor, has stepped down as director of UW Medicine IT Services to focus on his clinical practice.

“I’ve been privileged to serve at UW Medicine as ITS Medical Director,” said Dr. Payne. “It is difficult work, but I remind our team to focus on the fact that our doctors and nurses rely on what we do to take care of people who really need our help. That’s why I’ve been doing it as long as I have. Our work is valued and critical to the care of patients.”

Keeping busy, Dr. Payne was appointed member of the Healthcare Research Training (HCRT) Study Section of the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality for a 4-year term starting October 1, 2019.
