G2X TAKE: With enormous transformation and modernization efforts underway at the Department of Veterans Affairs, the ability to attract talent that can hit the ground running is critical, so the news that VA will be adding this former VA IT leader who, during his time with the Agency closely collaborated with the VA OI&T software developers for VA’s EHR system, is good news.
Shawn Faherty starts next week with VA where he will bring perspective gained as a leader and technical manager supporting information systems and services for complex organizations, to include prior experience as a Program Manager leading software development for the DoD Electronic Medical/Health Record (EMR/EHR) and six years of experience with the Veterans Health Administration, to his new role supporting the Office of Information and Technology AMO where we understand he is expected to serve as a liaison with the VAMCs. We are certain more than a few will be reaching out to Shawn to offer congratulations and support in his new role.
Prior roles include:
- Principal Consultant/Manager, HIT – KSJ & Associates, Inc.
- Health Enterprise Systems Manager (GS-15), Veterans Health Administration – U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs
- Deputy CIO (LTC) – US Army Surgeon General’s Office
