He is widely known as very personable, articulate and a highly effective communicator, facilitator, trainer, coach and mentor. As a former Administrative Director of Radiology and Diagnostic Cardiology, and with a history of successfully directing a range of service lines from small community hospitals; large complex trauma center operations to outpatient services, Shawn has a broad knowledge base of the entire care continuum that enables him to assist large delivery networks to achieve project successes in the implementation of clinical systems.
Over 10 years ago, Shawn introduced change in how clinical information systems are implemented in a healthcare setting. By defining the clinical and business drivers for the deployment of any system, organizations must seek goal alignment across all service lines in order to realize the tangible benefits of any system. When the business drivers and clinical necessity balance, the organization can truly enhance the patient caregiver experience while simultaneously satisfying the business strategy. This type of collaboration requires that every project remain clinically centered. It requires a trusted advisor that is multi-lingual and can speak fluently in areas of clinical delivery, information technology and business while remaining true to the mission of enhancing the quality of healthcare. Shawn is that uniquely qualified resource.
Shawn received his B.A. in Political Science from the University of California at Davis and his Master Degree in Healthcare Administration from California State University at Hayward. Shawn is a certified radiology administrator.
