Welcome to the last installment of #GoesBeyond stories submitted by HIMSS attendees. We asked visitors to our booth to tell us about individuals who go above the call of duty and beyond expectations to make a positive impact on the world, and we’ve been honored to share those stories on our blog. If you missed past installments, you can read them here, here, here, here, and here.
We hope this series has inspired you to thank those who are quietly making a difference—and maybe to recognize that others appreciate your efforts, too.
Mike Mistretta, VP & CIO at Virginia Hospital Center: “Lynsi took over leadership of our clinical team on short notice, and has had to implement several products in the last three months with difficult customers. This is her first leadership challenge, and Lynsi rocks!”
Charles Cook, Communication Specialist at Evoke Consulting: “Cait is the jack of all trades and holder of all knowledge. No job is too small or too big for her to take ownership of and execute successfully. She takes initiative on all her duties as well as making sure everyone else is equipped to do theirs—all with a smile on her face.”
Carla von Bernewitz, Director, Department of Defense Business Development at Microsoft: “The Dominican sister care for my grandmother in 1967. They came to her house every day and changed her bandages, talked to her about her needs, and most importantly, showed the entire family how to deal with this most difficult situation. I doubt there was home health care back then. I doubt any individual or organization shows more compassion or dignity for the sick and dying than the sisters showed my grandmother.”
Thank you to everyone who shared their #GoesBeyond story with us at HIMSS.
