In this role, Janczewski will serve as a physician resource for the company’s operations and clinical informatics teams, supporting the development of healthcare IT strategy models to address data management and interoperability challenges. He will also contribute to and represent the organization through his continued leadership as a co-chair on the international Standards Development Organization (SDO) Health Level Seven’s (HL7) Electronic Health Record Working Group.
“Due to Dr. Janczewski’s extensive government experience and positions with healthcare IT standards organizations, we found he was an ideal fit for this role on our clinical informatics team,” said Al Nardslico, chairman and president of Systems Made Simple. “We believe his broad understanding of the industry will be an asset to Systems Made Simple’s future growth as we continue to explore new opportunities in the healthcare space.”
