BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (PRWEB) December 10, 2019
Claudius Moore, a seasoned technology executive who joined American Family Care (AFC) earlier this year, has been named the healthcare network’s new Chief Information Officer. Over the last 15 years, Moore has mastered methods to leverage technology to drive revenue and reduce costs for healthcare systems, while also creating a high-quality, efficient experience for patients.
Moore leads AFC’s information technology division, providing support and maintenance of existing systems while developing new technology solutions for the entire healthcare network. American Family Care is headquartered in Birmingham, Alabama, with more than 200 clinics across the nation, in more than 25 states.
“We’re thrilled to promote Claudius to the Chief Information Officer position,” said D. Bruce Irwin, M.D., CEO and founder of American Family Care. “In a very short of amount time, he has applied his extensive knowledge of technology management and his background in healthcare to advance our daily operations. His work enables AFC medical providers to stay ahead of the competition by providing quality, affordable and accessible healthcare.”
Moore has a dual master’s degree in information technology management and business administration from the University of Maryland and a bachelor’s degree in public administration from the University of Sierra Leone. In addition, he holds a graduate certificate in computer information science from The Catholic University of America and he is a Microsoft certified system administrator (MCSA).
“I’m honored to receive this promotion. It is very exciting to guide AFC through the many twists and turns of technology,” said Claudius Moore, Chief Information Officer at AFC. “My passion for medicine goes back to my first hospital job as an orderly; when I escorted heart patients to surgery. They shared their fears about their operations with me, and I comforted them. I realized healthcare was my passion.”
Previously, Moore served as Chief Information Officer of South Bend Clinic, in South Bend, Indiana, a regional hospital system, Vice President of Information Services at Physicians Hospital System in Mishawaka, Indiana, and Director of Information and Revenue Systems at Howard University Hospital in Washington, DC.
“The role of information technology in healthcare is always evolving,” Moore says. “At AFC, we are constantly working to make it easy for patients to get access to care. Not only to make an appointment through our website; but also to log in and see results, medications and insight about their care. We are providing more than urgent care. We are engaging with the patient and sharing vital details. The goal is to help them maintain a healthy lifestyle.”
All AFC clinics are designed, equipped and staffed to provide accessible primary care, urgent care and minor emergency treatment. Each clinic features a high-tech approach, including digital x-rays, on-site lab testing, state-of-the-art diagnostics and electronic medical records. The clinics are staffed by kind, caring and compassionate healthcare professionals.
