I recently read a blog post on the shortage of women in healthcare IT. Women are underrepresented in most IT fields, but we were still surprised at how few women we saw at HIMSS12 this year. At iSirona, we place a high value on hiring and promoting women—that’s why we have several women in leadership roles, including Jena Milan, Polly Mulford and Mary Carr.
Jena Milan, our vice president of product management, leverages her 17 years of experience in product management, sales and marketing to help us design products that work—really work—for our customers. Polly Mulford, our vice president of account management, is our go-to client advocate, helping us nurture and maintain relationships with clients. And, we recently promoted Mary Carr to chief nursing officer. Mary’s been working in healthcare settings for 15 years and brings a wealth of knowledge on clinical workflow analysis, process improvement and healthcare information technology design.
