The Office of Information Technology (OIT) was officially organized in 2003, when the John A. Burns School of Medicine (JABSOM) was located at the Mānoa Campus in the old Biomedical Sciences building under the adept leadership of Dean Ed Cadman. At that time, OIT consisted of only two staff and gradually began to acquire support staff for web and application development. When moving to the Kaka’ako facility in April 2005, it became necessary to increase technology staff in other areas to handle the demands of being a separate facility remotely located from the Mānoa campus and without the luxury of obtaining support directly from the UH Information Technology Services (ITS) group. In addition to managing the technology for the new Kaka’ako facility, we also began to provide system-wide IT infrastructure consulting and support for all JABSOM entities, including Gold Bond Building and external hospital and clinic sites.
