Renowned health information technology committee selects Mandy Long to help lead efforts in promoting the practical application and operation of EHR systems
Boca Raton, FL – September, 13, 2016 – Modernizing Medicine, Inc. is proud to announce the appointment of Mandy Long, Vice President of Product Management, as the new Chair of the HIMSS Electronic Health Record Association (EHRA) Clinician Experience Workgroup.
For over two years, Mandy has played an integral part in the product strategy and direction of Modernizing Medicine’s specialty-specific software suite. As Clinician Experience Chair, she will leverage her extensive experience and strong knowledge of health IT strategic planning to assist the group’s efforts of accelerating health IT adoption, advancing interoperability and improving the quality and efficiency of care through modern technologies.
“The EHR Association will benefit from Mandy’s impressive and expansive expertise in the HIT industry. We know how busy she is with her ‘day job’ and truly appreciate her willingness to take on this important leadership position and additional responsibilities,” states Barbara Hobbs, HIMSS EHR Association Chair, Membership Committee.
The Clinician Experience Workgroup focuses on clinician experience and usability. The group will be a source of information and education for EHR Association members, provide a forum for discussion and serve as a vehicle for monitoring and providing input to regulatory and certification initiatives as well as other industry stakeholders such as ONC and NIST.
“I am very excited and honored to assume this new role and look forward to collaborating with such a forward-thinking group of health IT professionals,” said Mandy Long. “As tracking quality measures and patient outcomes become increasingly important, industry-wide collaboration should as well. Through the EHR Association’s open-dialogue forum, physicians can openly engage with peers and industry stakeholders to discuss collective experiences with EHR systems. Not only does this transparency promote the practical application and operation of health IT, but it also supports safe healthcare delivery.”
In addition, the Sun Sentinel Media Group recently named Mandy as one of its Top Workplace Professionals of 2016. Honorees will be recognized at the TWP Awards Program and Cocktail Reception on September 22.
