  • St. Louis, MO-IL (1888PressRelease) March 23, 2011 - This quarter's event will feature two talks: "Information and Data Governance and its Business Value" by Cheri Cooper of Wells Fargo Associates, and "Healthcare Meaningful Use" by Jason Ketteman and Sandi Wolf of Mercy Health Systems.

    "Information and Data Governance and its Business Value"
    Cheri Cooper is the Business Information Officer and a Senior Vice President at the St. Louis Home Office of Wells Fargo Advisors, LLC, responsible several strategic initiatives, including the company's Information Strategic Initiative. Additionally, Cheri chairs the Information Governance board, and works to ensure governance processes are followed and updated as the company grows and matures.

    In her talk, Cheri will explore why Data Governance is important, and share the approach Wells Fargo Advisors took to institute its Information Governance Board and associated Data Governance procedures. Cheri will discuss the Process Flows, Event Triggers and Value Proposition of Data Governance, and describe some of the lessons learned throughout the process of developing new governance procedures.

    "Healthcare Meaningful Use"
    From the Sisters of Mercy Health System's Grant Management Office, Director Sandi Wolf and Operational Informaticist Jason Ketteman both attribute their success to a wide range of background experience, rather than deep expertise in any one particular area. Sandi, a CPA with a career in regulatory and financial analytics, and Jason, a Pharmacist with a career in IT and business intelligence, spend most of their time working to bridge the divides that can develop between the disparate groups their office serves, including front-line caregivers, clinical leadership, technical and operations personnel, and regulatory entities.

    Their talk will focus the recent efforts by the federal government to encourage adoption of healthcare information technology through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act's funding for electronic health records (EHR) systems. Specifically, they will focus on the requirement that providers engage in "Meaningful Use" of EHR systems, which are the first of several mechanisms to ensure that technology is used effectively to improve patient care.
