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.
