Working with our Community Connect partners has given me a very strong understanding that the needs of an independent practice differ greatly from those within a larger organization. I am very passionate about helping independent practices maintain their autonomy while leveraging technology to share clinical data across organizations.
Sheila D. Parker, MBA, PMP, is the vice president. Her goal is to leverage technology services and experience to independent practices. Sheila works with the AXIA team to ensure independent partners have the appropriate technology solutions to yield optimal performance and quality patient care.
She has led the implementation of more than 500 physician office (1,500+ providers) system conversions during her more than 25 years in healthcare IT. In addition, she has had responsibility for system support for more than 60 different practice management and clinical systems.
She also has led the implementation and support of the Community Connect program, which extends software and support services to independent providers with a patient-centric focus.
