Faculty Details

Shannon L. Browning, RPh, MD


Associate Professor


General Internal Medicine


In January 2021, Dr. Browning became the first chief medical information officer (CMIO) for Marshall Health. This specialized role assists physicians in Marshall Health’s outpatient clinics in response to the emphasis on telemedicine and a combined electronic health record with Mountain Health Network. In her role as CMIO, Dr. Browning actively supports physician engagement and alignment in the effective use of clinical information technology resources. This includes providing guidance for the design of systems, clinical content and workflow and operational processes with the goal of improving patient care and delivery of care. Dr. Browning is double-board certified in internal medicine and pediatrics and is also trained as a registered pharmacist. After being a practicing pharmacist for 5 years, she decided to change her career path and entered medical school. She graduated from the Joan C. Edwards School of Medicine in 2004, where she also completed her internal medicine-pediatrics residency and joined the faculty in 2008. During her time at Marshall, she has engaged in the education of young physicians and other health care professionals, such as pharmacists and nurse practitioners. In addition to patient care and education, she focused on clinical operations of the department of internal medicine. With that experience, she was able to be part of the process of adapting patient care and workflow to the everchanging environment of electronic medical records. Her experiences in the department of internal medicine and her commitment to the Marshall family and the Huntington area, prepared her for her role as CMIO.
