VIRGINIA BEACH, Va., Jan. 27 /PRNewswire/ -- DIVURGENT, a national healthcare consulting firm with offices in Dallas, TX and Virginia Beach, VA, is pleased to announce that Lindsey Jarrell has been named as a Partner in the firm. Mr. Jarrell brings over 15 years of leadership, innovation and management expertise to the DIVURGENT team. Jarrell was most recently the Senior Vice President and Chief Information Officer of BayCare Health System in Clearwater, Florida. Prior to joining BayCare, he served as Executive Vice President with Healthlink through its acquisition by IBM.
"Lindsey's work with large integrated delivery networks throughout the United States has given him broad knowledge of and perspective on the challenges facing healthcare today," said Colin Konschak, Managing Partner. "His experience will allow our firm to accelerate our rapid growth. Lindsey will be able to advise healthcare leaders on the ramifications of the ARRA and HITECH Acts and help devise strategies to maximize incentives under these programs."
"I'm truly excited to join the leadership team of DIVURGENT in this next chapter of what already is an impressive era. DIVURGENT's focus on both the customer and innovation is a direct result of the great leadership team that is already here," Jarrell said.
"The industry is undergoing impressive growth that will continue for several years. Business and clinical intelligence is a good example of where we will see a continued upswing. We are finally approaching a tipping point where meaningful business intelligence is going to become so critical to hospital operations that administrators will start demanding better platforms. The key opportunity for consulting firms is in devising the creation of a solid data governance framework and facilitation of a data model," Jarrell said.
