Evan Slavik Promoted to Senior Director – Information Services, Enterprise Imaging

Evan Slavik joined the Radiology department over three years ago. Time certainly flies when everything runs smoothly within the workflow and dynamics of our team under his supervision. 

Evan has shown his capabilities since assuming the directorship of our Informatics group. Undoubtedly, he was an effective supervisor. However, as the saying goes, all good things must come to an end. When the opportunity arose for Evan to advance his career one level up, he seized it. His competence didn’t go unnoticed. 

The positive aspect is that Evan Slavik has been promoted to senior director. Nevertheless, this change also means his focus has shifted more towards hospital-wide responsibilities rather than departmental ones. Fortunately, we’ve found a suitable replacement for his former position in Pushya Ramaswamy. Thus far, Pushya has seamlessly integrated into our group and proven to be an excellent addition.

My new title is senior director – Information Services, Enterprise Imaging. I’ll be responsible for leading the strategy for technical teams responsible for any imaging IT systems within the institution. Our main departmental groups would be Radiology, Cardiology, and the newly formed Pathology informatics team. Additionally, we have an “Enterprise Imaging” group that is responsible for imaging systems that are not part of the previously listed department portfolios. The Enterprise Imaging group is responsible for photo capture, point of care ultrasound, ophthalmology, and soon dental and scope images. Some of the major items that we’re focusing on over the next year include implementing a digital pathology image management system; improving efficiencies in workflows for our patients, clinical staff and IT staff; expanding the system supported by our enterprise imaging teams; enhancing our data gathering and reporting capabilities; and evaluating AI for imaging workflows. 

I will still be in contact with the Radiology Informatics group although Pushya will manage day-to-day operations and planning. 

A humble opinion from the group… 

In Evan’s time with us, his humble leadership style was truly inspiring. His keen understanding of the value that every individual brought to the organization made us feel not just like employees, but integral parts of a cohesive and dynamic team. He had a commendable ability to recognize and celebrate the unique strengths and contributions of each team member. His transparency fostered trust and openness, and we are genuinely thankful for the positive impact in leadership that blessed our team. 

We are lucky to have an exceptional leader, mentor, and source of inspiration still nearby. He may have been promoted, but his desk remains just a few steps away for now! We will still welcome you and wish you continued success and fulfillment in all your endeavors!
