Allscripts snaps up former Deloitte staffer Gaylene Ray
EMR vendor Allscripts has appointed former Deloitte staffer Gaylene Ray as vice president of professional services for Australia and New Zealand, with responsibility for the implementation and daily running of Allscripts' client projects in the region.
Ms Ray was a director of Deloitte's technology advisory practice, where she specialised in large-scale EMR implementations and led the planning, design, build, test and implementation phases for large EMR roll-outs in Australia, Canada and the US.
This includes working on several large projects in Australia, including the Epic roll-out at Melbourne's Royal Children's Hospital and the Cerner implementation at Monash Health.
Prior to joining Deloitte Australia she held a similar role with Deloitte Canada. She began her career as a paediatric nurse in Sydney and has 20 years' experience in critical care, acute care, medicine, surgical services including operating theatres, obstetrics, paediatrics and diagnostic services.
Allscripts managing director for the Asia Pacific, David Chambers, said Ms Ray's hands-on experience in the implementation of clinical information systems will be tremendously valuable to Allscripts’ existing and potential clients.
“Gaylene is a proven leader of driving technology-enabled change at large, complex organisations,” Mr Chambers said. “She has experience at every stage of the process, from vision, conceptualisation and design to change management and staff training.
“She has a passion for working with clients from the very outset to set them up for success. We are delighted to have her on board.”
