BEAVERTON, Ore., May 17, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Enli Health Intelligence, the market leader in population health management technology, announced today that Jacquelyn Hunt, the company’s chief population health officer, has been recognized by Health Data Management as one of the 75 “Most Powerful Women in Health IT.” Health Data Management’s editorial team launched rankings of women in the healthcare and healthcare IT fields to shine the bright light of national recognition on their accomplishments. A key objective of the award is to showcase the exceptional achievements of this under-represented group to the entire industry, raising the profile of the selected executives and the importance of diversity.

“The number of women who hold leadership positions in healthcare IT remains stubbornly low, but the health and financial impact they have is immense,” observed Fred Bazzoli, Editor-in-Chief at Health Data Management. “Jacquelyn Hunt’s career exemplifies this fact. Whether she is working inside the health system as a clinician, or alongside of it as academic researcher or technology innovator, Jacquelyn is focused first and foremost on improving patient health with information technology.”

Dr. Hunt was selected based upon her longstanding contributions to clinical research and publication, her commitment to peer coaching and mentoring, as well as her ongoing work to support healthcare providers using Enli CareManager, the Best in KLAS population health IT platform that she co-developed more than a decade ago while serving as Executive Director of Quality and Care Redesign at Providence Health & Services.

“I am humbled to stand alongside such an accomplished group of women,” said Dr. Hunt. “I think each of us would tell you that we’re lucky. Every day, we have the opportunity to help organizations make a difference in the health and well-being of the populations they serve. From community health centers supporting patients struggling with mental health and addiction to larger health systems focused on improving care delivery while pursuing new payment models—providers are on the frontlines of innovation.”

Following her tenure at Providence, Dr. Hunt completed a Merck Foundation Fellowship with the Institute for Healthcare Improvement, and served as Chief Quality Officer and Chief Information Officer at Bellin Health System, a member of the top performing Pioneer ACO in 2014. In her role at Enli Health Intelligence, she is responsible for oversight of Enli’s customer success team, health promotion program development, and the Knowledge to Action® value stream. Dr. Hunt supports organizational transformation founded on team-based care delivery models, technology adoption, and pursuit of Triple Aim outcomes.

“In my field, I look for leaders who can bridge among technology, management, and quality improvement methods and practice. Jacquelyn models that bridging capacity superbly,” commented Donald Berwick, MD, MPP, President Emeritus and Senior Fellow at the Institute for Healthcare Improvement.

Health Data Management will host a daylong event in Boston, Massachusetts to recognize honorees. “The Most Powerful Women in Healthcare IT” conference will provide a series of keynote presentations and educational sessions focused on trends and advances in healthcare IT, while also offering attendees networking forums. During the conference, Dr. Hunt will be participating in a panel discussion entitled, “Using Innovation in Healthcare to Address the Needs of the Underserved.” More information on the event can be found on the conference website.
