Can you tell us a little about ANTHC and each of your roles within the organization?
Stewart is the CTO for ANTHC serving previously as their CIO and before that Director of Telehealth. His work in telehealth is well-known globally and he lives currently in Israel working still with ANTHC but also overseas. Karen is the Director of Statewide IT Services for ANTHC and is responsible for coordinating and communicating with all the ANTHC tribes and organizations. Her focus on outreach and education puts her at the center of several initiatives and resources within ANTHC. We also had the opportunity to have James Spillane on the interview with us. James is a private consultant for Sitnasuak Health Solutions working with tribes primarily on improving patient care through work flow and process improvements.
