Clark on Connecting

Known as the “Health IT Rock Star,” Susan’s 25-year career has spanned from her beginnings at a clinic front desk to managed care operations, EHR implementation, privacy & security, health information management, health information exchange, Medicaid and public health technology, and federal & state policy and advocacy. This diverse background has formed the perfect stage for Susan to observe the entire healthcare ecosystem, enabling her to transcend traditional silos with an understanding of the dependencies and impacts on multiple stakeholders. Utilizing her expertise in EHR and HIE implementation, as well as quality payment programs, Susan’s most recent roles have involved connecting state stakeholders to achieve state programmatic goals, primarily within Medicaid and social services by optimizing federal funding for technology. Susan has served in multiple volunteer positions, including as president of the Indiana Health Information Management Association, HIMSS Indiana chapter secretary, on the AHIMA Nominating Committee, and as the chair of the AHIMA Advocacy & Policy Council.
