    Getting to know Jessica Vida-Clough

    Professionally, I have been a Registered Nurse for 14 years with experience in a variety of care areas within the inpatient hospital setting. Although my MSN is not focused in Nursing Informatics, I have grown to love and embrace this nursing specialty. I have been an ANIA member for 2 years and am really impressed with the educational and networking opportunities offered. I am currently studying to sit for my ANCC NI-BC certification and hope to attend ANIA’s national conference this year. I take pride in finding creative ways to enhance my leadership in this ever-evolving world where nursing and technology intersect.

    On a more personal note, I was born and raised in Northeast Ohio have been married for 8 years to my husband Chris. We have two crazy dogs, Sherman & Riley, who are best buds. We have been a licensed family foster home for 3 years and although Nursing is a passion for me, fostering I have learned is my calling. Advocating for those most vulnerable and providing children a temporary safe place to land has truly been an honor of a lifetime. Our family is slowly returning to our pre-COVID traveling frequency, which I am so excited about.

  • Welcome Your New Board of Director Members!

    Dear colleagues,

    I am writing to inform you about the outcome of the nomination process that took place this fall. We had two candidates who expressed their interest in serving on the Board of Directors (BOD) for the TN Chapter of ANIA. One candidate applied for the position of President-Elect and the other for the Communication Chair. No one applied for the position of Secretary. Therefore, there was no need to hold an election.

    Please join me in congratulating the new members of the BOD and thanking them for their willingness to serve our organization.

    The new board members will start their 2-year term on January 1st, 2024. They will work closely with the current BODs to ensure a smooth transition. We are also sending out a call for volunteers to fill the vacant position of Secretary. If you are interested in this role or know someone who might be, please let us know.

    President-Elect: Ron Reed, MSN, RN

     

    I am a former US Navy officer who has pursued a diverse and enriching career in nursing and informatics. I have worked in various roles, from medical receptionist to assistant manager, gaining clinical, administrative, and leadership skills. I have also been involved in clinical informatics since 2003, applying IT solutions to improve healthcare delivery for our staff and patients.

    I am proud to share that I have a Master of Science in Nursing degree with a focus on Clinical Informatics. Since 2013, I have been working at LifePoint Health as a Director of Clinical Informatics. This role has been the most rewarding one in my career so far, as it allows me to use my clinical and informatics skills to improve healthcare outcomes. I have been leading the efforts to optimize electronic health records (EHR) systems, support data-driven decisions, and promote the use of technology in evidence-based practice.

    I have always been passionate about lifelong learning and professional development. I constantly look for opportunities to learn from and contribute to the field of nursing informatics, as well as to mentor others and advance the profession.

    Communications Chair: Brea Bowers, MSN, RN

    SE Educational Committee Webinar: Transitioning from Bricks and Mortar to New Models of Care: Implications for Nursing Informatics

    The explosion of sensor technologies, mHealth applications, and telehealth has led to an era of “Connected Health” in which technology facilitates novel, patient-focused care delivery models. These technological advances have outpaced the traditional healthcare and nursing informatics practice methods, and the healthcare AI market is expected to grow by 37% annually until 2030.

    Plan to hear Rosemary Kennedy, Chief Health Informatics Officer at Connect America, discuss this fascinating field and opportunity at a lunchtime presentation.  Rosemary describes herself on LinkedIn as a Healthcare Informatics Consultant with a passion for delivering innovative, value-based healthcare utilizing health information technology and process redesign to improve quality, safety, costs, and performance.

    This activity has been submitted to Georgia Nurses Association for approval to award contact hours. Georgia Nurses Association is accredited as an approver of nursing continuing professional development by the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s Commission on Accreditation.
