Dr. Joseph H. Schneider is recently retired from Indiana University Health where he served as Senior Vice President and Chief Health Information Officer.  Prior to that, he was co-Chief Medical Information Officer for Baylor Scott and White, where he developed deep involvement of all clinical disciplines in informatics and the management of clinical information systems.  

He currently consults in informatics and provides care for newborn babies at UT Southwestern/Parkland Hospital in Dallas.  He serves on the Child Health Informatics Advisory Committee for the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP). He was a co-author of the 2003 Continuity of Care Record standard, one of the first interoperability approaches. He co-authored the AAP policy on Personal Health Records and authored the #1 AAP Chapter Resolution of 2003, recommending that the AAP take a leadership position in the development and implementation of pediatric EHRs. He is a founding member of the Texas Medical Association's Health Information Technology (HIT) Committee, known for its activist involvement in promoting the usability and safety of HIT. Dr Schneider has written multiple articles and peer-reviewed papers, mostly in informatics.

Dr. Schneider graduated at the top of his medical school class from Emory and has an MBA from Columbia with 15 years of business experience including managing a medical device company.  In 2014 he became board certified in Clinical Informatics, ranking among the top scorers on the first-ever informatics exam.  His passions are the families he cares for and the quality, safety and usability of HIT that will be used to help them have wonderful lives.

Dr. Schneider is a competitive racewalker and in 2004 finished first in the Houston 1500 meters Senior Olympic racewalk. He has been married for 40 years and loves to go on slow walks in Dallas with his wife and their dog.
