Vice President of Business Development and IT Implementation
Christy has a passion for our regional healthcare community and is thankful for the opportunity to help navigate the complex regulatory requirements of Information Technology. Christy's team played a vital role in one of the largest Health IT projects undertaken by Louisiana: the implementation of an Electronic Health Record system in all Public Health Units within the state of Louisiana. She has extensive experience in project management and leading multi-disciplinary teams.
Christy began her professional career as a Clinical Laboratory Scientist in the Blood Bank department of a 300-bed acute care facility. It was in this very critical department that she honed her communication skills and calm demeanor. After 18 years in the department, she transitioned to the role of Marketing Director for Outreach Laboratory Services and grew this service line to a six-figure profit margin within the first year. After obtaining her Master of Health Informatics degree from Louisiana Tech University, she joined P&S Surgical Hospital and SMSO. Christy oversees the IT/EHR support functions of SMSO as well as company-based health clinics in both Louisiana and Colorado. The success of her professional career is the direct result of her exceptional leadership and communication skills. Christy is an active member in regional and national Informatics societies, her community, and the Ouachita Women's Tennis Association.
