I am happy to see that women are aspiring to – and succeeding in – these leadership roles in the healthcare information technology industry.
Maitland, FL (PRWEB) April 27, 2016
Robecca Quammen, DBA, has been selected as one of the “75 Most Powerful Women in Healthcare IT” by Health Data Management magazine. The award honors women who have played an instrumental role in driving healthcare technology and innovation forward.
“I am honored to be a part of this esteemed and accomplished group. And, I am truly happy to see that women are aspiring to – and more importantly succeeding in – these leadership roles in the healthcare information technology industry. Using technology to deliver healthcare in the most effective and efficient manner possible is so important to our nation, to the healthcare industry and, most importantly, to all of us who need high quality patient care,” Quammen said.
Throughout her 25-plus year career in healthcare information technology, Quammen has led a variety of organizations to go beyond the status quo and truly leverage technology for this greater good. Quammen has worked as the vice president of a healthcare information technology consultancy, national vice president for a leading healthcare software vendor and in various other supervisory and management positions.
As CEO of Quammen Health Care Consultants (QHCC), a pioneering company that offers strategic, advisory and management services designed to enable healthcare organizations to surpass clinical, financial and operational goals, Quammen has worked with a variety of healthcare organizations to optimize the use of technology. In fact, QHCC has led more than 40 hospitals to achieve meaningful use under the government’s incentive program. The company is also a certified woman-owned small business (WOSB).
Most recently, Quammen launched MyConsultQ. This on-demand marketplace is empowering clinical, financial, executive, operational and technology consultants to experience unprecedented professional growth by providing access to an online demand marketplace. By bringing the gig economy to healthcare, MyConsultQ empowers consultants to secure consultative, temporary or long-term positions with a variety of organizations; network with other top professionals; and quickly advance their careers. As a result, independent consultants can easily find the most ideal opportunities and focus on career development, instead of merely finding a job. In addition, the marketplace enables healthcare organizations to more efficiently and effectively leverage the human resources that can support the improved care, enhanced patient experiences and reduced costs associated with healthcare’s “triple aim.”
Quammen, along with the other women named to the Health Data Management list, will be honored at the Most Powerful Women in Healthcare IT Conference, May 12, in Boston. The event will offer sessions on trends in the industry, as well as an awards ceremony.
