The Amer­i­can Nurses As­so­ci­a­tion an­nounced three lead­er­ship ap­point­ments. Alice Bod­ley has been named COO. She joined the Sil­ver Spring, Md.-based as­so­ci­a­tion in 2001 as gen­eral coun­sel and also served as its chief le­gal of­fi­cer. In ad­di­tion to over­see­ing le­gal af­fairs, she also was the ANA’s ad­min­is­tra­tor for hu­man re­sources and gov­ern­ment af­fairs, as well as other de­part­ments.

Mau­reen Cones was pro­moted to chief le­gal of­fi­cer af­ter serv­ing as se­nior coun­sel since 2008. She has fo­cused on cre­den­tial­ing, lit­i­ga­tion and scope-of-prac­tice is­sues and served as the ANA’s le­gal rep­re­sen­ta­tive to the Coali­tion for Pa­tients’ Rights.

Ellen Lah­man was named di­rec­tor of gov­er­nance and in­ter­na­tional af­fairs at the Amer­i­can Nurses Cre­den­tial­ing Cen­ter, an ANA sub­sidiary, where she’ll serve as a li­ai­son to in­ter­na­tional clients and work with the or­ga­ni­za­tion’s board of direc­tors.

Craig Richardville, se­nior VP and CIO at Caroli­nas Health-Care Sys­tem, has been named the 2015 John Gall Jr. CIO of the Year, awarded by the Col­lege of Health­care In­for­ma­tion Man­age­ment Ex­ec­u­tives and the Health­care In­for­ma­tion and Man­age­ment Sys­tems So­ci­ety.

The or­ga­ni­za­tions rec­og­nized Richardville for em­brac­ing the abil­ity of tech­nol­ogy to en­gage pa­tients, in­clud­ing his work with two mo­bile health ap­pli­ca­tions that al­low pa­tients to share data from fit­ness track­ers, wire­less scales and other de­vices. In 2013, the sys­tem also launched one of the largest vir­tual in­ten­sive-care units in the U.S., com­pris­ing nearly 300 vir­tu­ally mon­i­tored ICU beds in North and South Carolina.

Richardville has been with the Char­lotte, N.C.-based sys­tem for over 18 years.
