Donna Ramos-Johnson has more than 30 years of information management experience, developing and executing technology strategies to deliver innovative, high quality, and high impact results. As a Director and Chief Technology Officer at DCPCA, she is responsible for planning and managing all internal and external technology initiatives, including implementing health data exchange and integration strategies to enable improvements in care coordination; facilitating population health reporting; and supporting quality improvement objectives of DCPCA’s community health center members.

Mrs. Ramos-Johnson serves as the program executive for the DC Regional Extension Center (REC), known as eHealthDC, with responsibility for supervising the delivery of Meaningful Use (MU) technical assistance services to nearly 1,000 primary care providers in the District of Columbia. She also oversees the implementation, enhancement, and maintenance of eClinicalWorks (eCW) electronic health record (EHR) technologies for seven of DCPCA’s community health center members, supporting more than 1,800 users located at 11 sites across the District of Columbia. 

Since 2008, Mrs. Ramos-Johnson has been a key participant in efforts to implement health information exchange (HIE) in the District of Columbia. She managed the development and implementation of the DC RHIO health information exchange (HIE), the first operating HIE in the metropolitan Washington, DC area, as well as the the Emergency Department Information Technology (ED-IT) system, both of which enabled the real-time exchange of patient encounter and clinical information from multiple sources.  

Mrs. Ramos-Johnson is currently providing governance leadership and operational oversight for the Capital Clinical Integrated Network’s (CCIN) Capital Partners in Care (CPC) HIE and is guiding the expansion of the CPC-HIE to support District-based health care coordination and population health initiatives that depend upon the availability of HIE capabilities. She also contributes subject matter expertise to the DC HIE Policy Board as a member of the Board’s Technology Subcommittee. Previously serving as the director of the Human Services Modernization Program (HSMP) in the DC Office of the Chief Technology Officer, Mrs. Ramos-Johnson led the development of Safe Passages, an award-winning data exchange system that enabled the real-time sharing of case management data across the District’s human services agencies.
