NENIC Membership Spotlight

This spotlight showcases NENIC’s greatest resource—its members. Each profile highlights the diversity of experiences, skills, and knowledge of our membership: the student, the manager, and the those at just the beginning of their careers.

Sandra McPherson DNP, RN-BC, CPHIMS started her journey to CNIO of Lawrence and Memorial Hospital in Connecticut when she was offered the opportunity to build and update the supply inventory database for the new OR electronic health record at William W. Backus Hospital. Dr. McPherson found that she had a keen interest in this type of work. Soon after, she transitioned to a full time role in Informatics at Lawrence and Memorial Hospital.  She then went on to participate in or lead at least 20 implementations in different care areas. She has experience with a number of vendors: McKesson Horizon Clinicals, Paragon, Meditech, Mosaiq, and Ibex. Read more.
