HIN also welcomes Allison McBrierty as CFO - a new role at HealthInfoNet. We are excited to have her leading our finance team and developing our new financial model.
Lastly, we have begun our Strategic Planning process for 2018-2021. This planning effort will include Staff and Board retreats to develop a dynamic strategic plan that will focus and align efforts, inform optimal structures and processes, and provide a framework for high performance across the organization.
We aim to have our new plan developed by the Fall for a 2018 implementation and will keep you updated on our process.
