Stephanie L. Reel

Vice Provost for Information Technology and Chief Information Officer

Stephanie L. Reel has been vice provost for information technology and chief information officer for The Johns Hopkins University since January 1999. She is also vice president for information services for Johns Hopkins Medicine, a post she has held since 1994. 

As CIO for all divisions of the Johns Hopkins University and Health System, Ms. Reel leads the implementation of the strategic plan and operational redesign for information services, networking, telecommunications, as well as, clinical, research and instructional technologies.

Ms. Reel formed a governance structure to support funding and priority setting across both university and health system to meet the education and research needs of the enterprise. Under her direction, the Health System implemented a version of the electronic patient record which was honored for its innovation by Computerworld magazine and the Smithsonian Institution with an award that remains on display in the Smithsonian’s Museum of American History. She is now working with other leaders toward a regional electronic patient record. 

Ms. Reel is involved in several other Web-based development initiatives across the university, such as: a university-wide internet student information system (ISIS) to provide easy access for students about admissions status, financial aid, registration, grades, and student accounts; procurement support systems; and an Enterprise Resource Planning System, a combined JHHS/JHU financial systems solution.


Ms. Reel is the 2002 recipient of the National CIO 20/20 Vision Leader Award and was named CIO of the Year 2000 by the College of Healthcare Information Management Executives. She is a member of Educause, the Healthcare Information Systems Executive Association, the College of Healthcare Information Systems Executives, and the Healthcare Information Management and Systems Society, and the Inaugural Board of Directors Member of the National Alliance for Health Information Technology. She currently serves on the client advisory boards of IBM, GE Medical Systems, Eclipsys, Verizon, Compuware, and the Information Systems Advisory Council for the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. 

Ms. Reel joined Johns Hopkins in 1990 with more than 15 years of experience in information systems. She graduated from the University of Maryland with a degree in information systems management and holds an MBA from Loyola College in Maryland.
