MVP Health Care has promoted Michael Della Villa to chief information officer responsible for leading all aspects of Information Technology for the organization. His areas of responsibility include guiding IT vision and strategy, architecture and planning, technology infrastructure and production system operations, application analysis and solution development, information management, and IT customer service. He works closely with MVP’s business leaders to align IT activities with business objectives and to ensure efficient, cost-effective operations that deliver business value.
