Rita Khan

Chief digital officer, Mayo Clinic

Description

Rita Khan started her tenure as Mayo Clinic’s first chief digital officer in January 2020, just before a global health crisis. Just as she was building relationships in her new role, she had to rapidly scale up Rochester-based Mayo’s digital health care tools and telehealth capabilities to respond to a nearly overnight pivot in patient care delivery. An influential change agent, she’s shepherded Mayo Clinic’s Center for Digital Health, which jumped from 4,200 telehealth visits in 2019 to more than 450,000 in 2021, while building a diverse and inclusive team that is more than 50% female.
