This week, please welcome Ellen Bailey, a seasoned executive who is currently serving as a Board member at a major healthcare system based in Atlanta. During her career, Ellen also served as the Chief Operating Officer of a major cardiology practice for 15 plus years where it grew from over 5 to 30 physicians during her leadership. Ellen has worked in a wide range of industries as an entrepreneur and an executive with deep executive, finance and operational expertise. She now serves as a partner for Midtown Consulting Group.

Ellen poses the question to our listeners; why can we order a pizza and have it delivered in less than 10 minutes but yet doctors can’t get a hold of patient data with the same speed and efficiency? She advocates that for such critical patient data and with human health at the core of our humanity, we should without hesitation, be expecting speed and efficiency, especially during times when staffing challenges and operational costs in healthcare organizations persist.
