John Daly – Southern Illinois Healthcare

When new Vice President and Chief Information Officer David Hakanson started at Southern Illinois Healthcare recently, General Counsel John Daly breathed a sigh of relief. It was great news. Having a new CIO who understood the benefits of—and was familiar with—the latest contract tracking database system was a boost to the legal department at the […]

Matt Cameron – Akumin Inc.

No one looks forward to getting an MRI. But Matt Cameron wants people to know that this stress-inducing procedure is not only easier than ever; it’s also becoming more and more convenient to schedule and undergo. That’s the premise behind Akumin Inc., where Cameron serves as the general counsel and senior vice president, leading the […]

Greg Bassi – Lumere

It was a process building up for weeks—and like the Tom Petty tune, the waiting was the hardest part. But for Chicago-based Lumere—a provider of evidence-based data and analytics solutions—being acquired in January by Colorado-based Global Healthcare Exchange (GHX)—a healthcare business and data automation company—was worth it. As Lumere’s General Counsel Greg Bassi tells it, […]

Rebecca Zimmer – GE Healthcare

It can be a stressful ordeal for any woman, anticipating the annual mammogram that the American Cancer Society advises for those 40 and older. Which is something that more than half of American women haven’t been undergoing. That’s according to a 2014 survey conducted by the nonprofit Society for Women’s Health Research. Some experts say […]

Karen S. Kim – CenCal Health

Even under the best of conditions, it seemed a challenging responsibility: taking over as general counsel for a large healthcare public entity. Turns out, the conditions would be anything but. While there was some insight in late 2019 about a pending pandemic, nobody could really anticipate the extent of what would be COVID-19. Certainly not […]

M.A. Joaquim Ballès – Trudell Medical Limited

His long-time role as general counsel might have seemed consuming enough. But, as part of a Trudell Medical Limited executive team whose members are expected to handle multiple responsibilities, Joaquim Ballès’ position was expanded a couple of years ago to include a stronger hand in business development. It’s something this leader has relished at this […]

Jennifer Crawford – Medici

When Jennifer Crawford became the general counsel at Medici in early 2019, she knew there’d be a lot of moving pieces—both inside the company and within the wider healthcare industry. Since then, those pieces have only multiplied. A pandemic can have that effect on a telehealth startup, after all. But with the challenge of COVID-19 […]

Todd Johnson – Previvo

If nothing else, Todd Johnson lives for checklists and challenges. He checked off all the boxes when given a list of what he needed to do to get into West Point. As a cadet, he checked off all the items needed to get into flight school. In civilian life, he’s checked off all the things […]

Alizah Diamond – Regional Cancer Care Associates

As Regional Cancer Care Associates, one of the nation’s largest cancer care networks, began celebrating its fifth year of success in 2016, an ambitious agenda was being readied. At the time, RCCA’s only in-house attorney, Terrill Jordan, was promoted to president and CEO and a search commenced for his legal successor. The ideal candidate would […]

Steven Tam – Vancouver Coastal Health Authority

A patient with a sepsis infection lies in a hospital bed in British Columbia. Needing more information to determine the best course of action, the doctor reaches out to peers in the U.S., who offer to share their observations—and offer some potential treatment options. But they can’t have a look at the patient’s medical records […]
