"The Sharp Experience is our culture of excellence as we work to shape the health care system of the future, which offers ready access to cost-effective, high-quality care."
Bill Spooner has been chief information officer (CIO) for more than 15 of his 30 years at Sharp HealthCare. He has led an aggressive IT effort that placed Sharp on the Hospitals and Health Networks 100 Most Wired list for 12 of the list's 14 years. IT was cited for its contributions to Sharp's 2007 Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award. Sharp was an early leader in electronic health records and has received several awards for its consumer website. In 2010, Sharp launched its mySharp portal to more closely engage its patients in their care, followed by the mobile mySharp in 2012 with an iPhone®, iPad® and iTouch® app.

Gall Jr. CIO of the Year Award, Spooner is a member of the Healthcare Information Systems Executive Association, the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society and a Fellow in the College of Healthcare Information Management Executives, in which he served as chair in 2006. He recently joined the Boards of the National eHealth Collaborative and the Digital Pathology Association.
