Thurston Smith – Swope Health Services

While the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted people’s physical health, it’s also taken a toll in other ways. “People with a history of mental illness were among the first people we reached out to because we can’t let them fall through the cracks,” says Thurston Smith, the CIO with Swope Health Services. “Just because COVID is […]

Sergio Vela – HealthCare.com

With the process complicated and often dread-inducing, nobody likes looking for insurance. For people 65 and older, it can be particularly daunting, involving complex coverages, rising prescription costs, and changing health care needs as they age. It’s an equation where the wrong choice can become very costly. Sergio Vela can’t personally say which plans are […]

Rajeev Ronanki – Anthem Inc.

Do you know how many ways there are to treat someone with diabetes? Sydney Health can answer that, says Rajeev Ronanki, the President, Digital Platforms for Anthem Inc. However, Sydney Health does not wear a stethoscope, tell a patient to say “ahh” or screen blood sugar levels—it’s an app that reminds people of health care […]

Steve Thompson – U.S. Medical Management

Consider Steve Thompson an IT leader who makes house calls. As CIO for U.S. Medical Management, he’s not actually on the road providing in-home health care and hospice services for the company.

Christopher Ross – Clover Health

They’re supposed to be the golden years, a time when folks can ease into retirement, pursue new passions or maybe see the places they’ve never visited. Those golden years can be quickly clouded by confusion over health insurance, though. Determining which plans are best, and how to fill coverage gaps in Medicare or Medicare Advantage […]

Julio Gonzalez – US MED

Diabetes patients have a familiar if unpleasant routine: hold out your finger … and jab! Soon, the finger becomes a pin cushion, albeit for the sake of obtaining important information about blood glucose levels. Though still common, those painful tests are no longer necessary, says Julio Gonzalez. His employer, US MED, partnered with manufacturers to […]

Paul VanAmerongen – UW Health

In his 20 years as a chief petty officer in the U.S. Navy—and as the first IT leader for the Pacific Trident submarine fleet—Paul VanAmerongen did everything from troubleshooting the mainframe computers to updating the unit’s networking equipment. But none of the challenges quite compare to the one in 1999, when he literally wrote the […]

Chris Diguette – VNA Care Network & Hospice

The COVID-19 pandemic forced an exodus from the traditional office space into homes. Some workers, however, didn’t have to adapt to new workplaces. They’d always worked at home—the homes of patients, that is. With nearly 31,000 patients, the VNA Care Network & Hospice employees over 550 clinicians—nurses, social workers, as well as physical and occupational […]

Charles Kunaka – National Youth Advocate Program

When Charles Kunaka was growing up in Zimbabwe, soccer was his sport. He knew of American football, but it wasn’t something he followed. That changed when he moved to Columbus, Ohio, home of the Ohio State Buckeyes, in 1999. Kunaka knew that if he wanted to live in America and be a part of American […]


Alliant is very pleased with our experience working with the TrueLine Publishing team. We were not only impressed with the caliber of the whitepaper that was produced, but with the level of attention from the team we partnered with. They were very detailed oriented and I appreciated their follow up. They even offered to refresh the article and invited Alliant to participate in some of the design features.
