We're confident that her contribution to Hiteks will strengthen our compliance with HIPAA and FDA regulations on medical software, which is one of our top priorities, as we believe in exercising the utmost security when it comes to protecting business processes and technical architecture for PHI and other sensitive information,"
About Laureen Segall
Laureen's professional training began at the University of Illinois at Urbana–Champaign, where she received a B.S. in computer science and mathematics. Subsequently, she acquired an extensive background in healthcare technology projects at IDM, a software company that was later acquired by Haemonetics, the current leading blood banking software company in the world. After Haemonetics, she gained experience in claims code management and reimbursement as Product Director at Zirmed, where she realized the efficiencies that could be achieved through more automation of their clinical review and validation processes.
"As clinical analytics and artificial intelligence expand to the point-of-care, Hiteks is the most well positioned company to advance clinical algorithms and real-time feedback mechanisms to physicians and nurses in the EHR. Besides its collaboration with Epic and integration with MEDITECH, Hiteks has a roadmap to offer its solutions to other EHRs and third party technology partners as a set of advanced web services. I'm excited by the opportunity to be involved with Hiteks at this stage of its growth, working closely with clients and listening to their needs," Laureen stated following her recent promotion to the position of Director in August 2017.
