Maturation of Healthcare IT

One of the great things about being in the same industry for 20 years is that there are some people that I have known for a long time.

It is great to see them at HIMSS. I was going through some pictures and found some that reminded me just how much things have changed. I guess these pictures are a metaphor the maturation of the entire healthcare IT field. Here are some examples:

Me and William Greskovich (left) in 1987 when we were FCG
consultants working on a gig at St. Mary’s – Evansville.
William is now the Vice President of Oerations and
Chief Information Officer for St. Agnes Hospital in Baltimore.

Mary Pat Fralick is currently the co-president
of Vitalize Consulting. This is her in 1986, wearing my
EMU sweatshirt, when we were low-level SMS employees.

I haven’t seen Bobbi Coluni in 15 years. But I believe she is still the
Director of Product Development at Thomson Medstat. This is us circa 1985.
I have no idea what we were doing here, but it wasn’t as intimate as it appears.
