An Inside Look into the Lives of Huntzinger Consultants

Time at Huntzinger
Almost two years

Time in Healthcare IT
“I’ve been in health IT since 2005. All that time has been focused on Cerner solutions, including working at Cerner for a stint. I have also worked for a large hospital organization and I've been an independent consultant. This has given me a 360-degree perspective of the Cerner platform. I have implemented and supported Cerner Core, HIM, Clinical Reporting, RRD, Dynamic Documentation, Meaningful Use and the CCL programming language.”

Consultant’s Corner – Alexandra Rae

An Inside Look into the Lives of Huntzinger Consultants

Client Executive.
“The role of a Huntzinger client executive is two-fold. On one hand, I recruit and provide talent resources for clients so that they’ll have access to assets with the depth, knowledge and expertise they require. On the other hand, I also work on the delivery side of the business to develop strategies and implement the solutions the clients need. I have no problem rolling up my sleeves to do whatever needs to be done — from doing spreadsheets to managing the oversight of major implementations.”
