I have had a passion for improving health information since the late 1970's. I served as VP/CIO for 19 years at Hunterdon Healthcare System and served as the Chief of Information Resource Management Services for 9 years at a Veterans Administration Medical Center where I formed a work rehabilitation program in Information Technology for Disabled Veterans. I was elected President of NJ HIMSS and served on the board for over 10 years. I currently serve on the South Carolina HIMSS board. I've also supported the Stevens Institute of Technology in NJ by serving on the planning committee for the Masters of Information Systems curriculum. I've also served on several committees for New Jersey Hospital Association over several years.
