RD335 - Virginia Health Information 2021 Annual Report and Strategic Plan Update

Executive Summary:

I’m honored to welcome you to Virginia Health Information’s (VHI) 2021 Annual Report & Strategic Plan Update. As President, I’m excited for you to learn more about VHI’s progress and accomplishments in the past year. In this report, you will find highlights of VHI’s projects, new initiatives, our Strategic Plan and how we continue to empower consumers with data.

As the desire for data has expanded, especially in the past year, I have been able to see firsthand as VHI continuously makes it a priority to disseminate information and make it available to the public. The resources they offer allow consumers to make more informed decisions when it comes to their healthcare and supports their slogan, “From numbers to knowledge." Virginians are fortunate to have so much access to data at their fingertips.

Serving as the VHI Board of Directors President has been an unforgettable experience, and I am grateful for the opportunity. In my time, I have learned much more about the healthcare landscape, connected with new colleagues and collaborated with board members in diverse industries to support VHI’s mission and vision. I am thrilled to pass the torch on to Debbie Condrey, VHI’s President Elect, who will serve as the upcoming Board of Directors' President. I am confident that she will continue to lead the organization toward success.

Before I say goodbye, I want to recognize and applaud Michael T. Lundberg on 28 great years at VHI. His expertise and accomplishments as the organization’s Chief Executive Officer have made him a true thought leader in the industry. I thank him for his professionalism, guidance and friendship. With Kyle Russell’s transition as VHI’s new Chief Executive Officer, I am assured that we will continue to see the organization produce initiatives that make an impact and reach new milestones.
