(PRESS RELEASE) CAMBRIDGE, MA, United States, 6-Jun-2019 — /EuropaWire/ — Philips Population Health Management (PHM)’s Chief Nursing Officer (CNO) Cindy Gaines has just been recognized by Health Data Management as one of the U.S.’s 50 most powerful women in health IT. Cindy is also among the fifteen women honored in the “HIT Vendor Executive” award category.

Health IT leaders have seen their role significantly expanded over the past years becoming increasingly demanding and complex. HIT vendors face a new world where consumer-savvy patients have increased their expectations and business leaders are navigating an evolving value-based care model. They need to successfully deploy technology, and serve as an end-to-end partner to healthcare organizations to deliver comprehensive solutions and help them thrive in this new era.

Health IT vendors work alongside customers to tackle their most technical and strategic challenges, bridging a historic gap between vendor and provider.

Cindy Gaines is driven by this passion in helping healthcare organizations transform how they manage and deliver care. Cindy has been a Chief Nursing Officer (CNO) since February 2019, promoting the movement to value-based care and PHM among customers, and ensuring their unique needs are communicated back to the support and development teams.

With over 32 years of healthcare experience, Cindy Gaines is spending her time between serving as a nurse, a president of administration, and an executive responsible for PHM at a large medical group in Kalamazoo, Michigan. It was in Kalamazoo where she first partnered with Philips, witnessing the potential to make a true difference in patient care and the provider experience, leveraging health IT solutions. Driven by her desire to transform care delivery on a bigger scale, Cindy has decided to join Philips and work with a variety of customers to develop innovative ways to accomplish ambitious goals.

The technology is often associated with an increased administrative burden and decreased face time with patients and this represents one of the biggest challenges health IT leaders face today – how to upend the tainted reputation technology has in many healthcare circles.

While understanding the barriers to adopting health IT, Cindy Gaines is dedicated to work and ensure each deployment lives up to its promises with a well-planned strategy and a clear outcome in mind. Cindy’s leadership demonstrates how today’s health IT offers a more patient-centric design for personalized care, and offers actionable insights into patient risk to tailor PHM.

Cindy Gaines was nominated for the award by Niki Buchanan, General Manager, Philips Population Health Management.

Commenting on Cindy’s recognition, Niki Buchanan, said:

“Cindy understands the intricacies of our customers’ biggest pain points, having been on the front-line trenches of patient care and navigating the challenges of regulatory pressures and implementing technology. This expertise is what makes Cindy a powerful force in the HIT industry. She truly serves as the voice of our customers within our executive team, and elevates the importance of health IT and the impact of regulation on operations in every conversation she has with hospital c-suites.
