In October 2019, SimpliFi executives and team members met with a specially assembled team of healthcare experts for roundtable discussions. While this elite group provides ongoing advice to SimpliFi, the goal of the October gathering was to spend time together talking through the biggest issues that healthcare systems are facing in today’s shifting industry. 

As the demand for contingent labor continues to rise, SimpliFi finds it critical to listen to the demands of healthcare systems in order to appropriately solve their unique workforce challenges. This team of healthcare executives serves as an Advisory Board for SimpliFi, providing important wisdom and direction based on years of diverse professional experience.

“We needed a group of experts who knew us, knew our business, and had an intimate understanding of the dynamics of the healthcare workforce from the perspective of our customers,” says SimpliFi President, James Quick, as quoted in a recent American Healthcare Leader article. “They help us increase the speed and reduce the execution risk for the innovations we are bringing to the market.”

SimpliFi’s Advisory Board members include June Altaras, MN, NEA-BC, RN, Senior Vice President & Chief Quality, Safety & Nursing Officer of MultiCare Health Systems; Sebastien Girard, MBA, Senior Vice President of Workforce Management for Atrium Health; Catharine MacLaren, Ph.D., LCSW, CEAP, Vice President of Talent & Diversity for Northern Light Health; Bonnie Phipps, MA, CMCP, CPA, HFMA, Fellow, Regional-CEO Emeritus, Ascension Health; Mary Stowe, MS, RN, NEA-BC, CNO Emeritus of Children’s Health; and Claire Zangerle, DNP, MBA, Chief Nurse Executive, Allegheny Health Network.
