Dr. Jon McKeeby is the Chief Information Officer for the NIH Clinical Center, the Chief of the Department of Clinical Research Informatics and the acting Chief of Biomedical Translational Research Informatics.


Dr. McKeeby has held the position of Chief Information Officer at the NIH Health Clinical Center and Department Head for the Department of Clinical Research Informatics since 2006 where he has been very focused on all aspects of information technology, electronic health records, databases and data warehouses. Dr. McKeeby has been a part of the Clinical Center team since 1991 where he has worked in various positions within the information technology departments. He went on to lead system development, database and web teams for the CC's information systems department prior to becoming the Deputy CIO and then CIO. DCRI merged with the Health Information Management Division in 2021. Since 2019, Dr. McKeeby has also served as the Acting Chief, Biomedical Translational Research Information System (BTRIS).

Dr. McKeeby has been part of project management teams for several enterprise-wide initiatives including implementation of the electronic health record (referred to as the Clinical Research Informatics System), Laboratory Information System, Radiology Information System, Nutrition, EKG, Interface Engine, and development of systems to support employee symptomatic and asymptomatic lab testing and COVID-19 employee vaccinations. Under his leadership, the department has met requirements for HIMSS Analytics Stage 7 for Acute Care (EMRAM) since 2015 and Ambulatory Care (O-EMRAM) since 2018.

Since 2005, Dr. McKeeby has been an adjunct assistant professor teaching several courses as part of Purdue Global Campus University's Masters of Science in Information Technology Program; as part of the Masters of Science in Information Technology at the University of Maryland Global College; and as part of the Doctorate of Information Technology Program at Walden University.
