Consultant’s Corner – Alexandra Rae

An Inside Look into the Lives of Huntzinger Consultants

Role
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.”

CIO Chat - Lori Johnston, ProMedica

This is a guest post provided by Lori Johnston, CIO of ProMedica. Huntzinger periodically invites its clients and partners to contribute to The Huntzinger Blog.

By Lori Johnston
CIO
ProMedica, Toledo, Ohio

Time in Healthcare
About 30 years. I started at Ernst & Young as a CPA, and about three years into my tenure there, I started working with healthcare clients.

Time as a CIO
I’ve been a CIO for the past year and a half. I’m not your typical CIO, as I didn’t come up through the ranks of the IT department. Instead, I came up through the business side, starting at Ernst & Young as the project manager for our system’s first merger, then I became the CFO of two of our hospitals. Over the years, I’ve been the head of corporate finance and the COO of post-acute operations. I later ran a hospital and eventually led a physician group in a dyadic relationship with a physician. I have a strong business background and a broad understanding of our integrated delivery system, so I was a good fit for ProMedica when they needed a CIO.

Time in Current Role
1.5 years
