Evans to focus on new technologies and cybersecurity
Gloversville, NY…. Littauer is proud to welcome Brian Evans, M.H.A., F.A.C.H.E., as the new Vice President of Information Services & Chief Information Officer. Brian comes to Littauer from Milford Hospital in Connecticut where he was their Chief Information Officer for 3 years. Prior to that, Brian was the Information Technology Director at Milford Hospital and also at Community Medical Center in Nebraska.
Brian received his Master’s Degree in Hospital Healthcare Administration from The University of Texas at Arlington. He received his Bachelor’s of Science in Management Information Systems degree from Oklahoma State. He is a Fellow of the American College of Healthcare Executives (F.A.C.H.E.), as well as a Certified Professional in Electronic Health Records (E.H.R.). He is a member of cybersecurity and health information groups nationally and regionally.
As Chief Information Security Officer and Privacy Officer, one of Brian’s roles is to review cybersecurity risks and to ensure Littauer complies with HIPAA regulations.
Healthcare has played an important role in Brian’s life. Brian explained his mother is a recently retired nurse, his older sister is a nurse and his younger sister is a surgeon. When he was young, his mom used to take him to visit nursing homes. As a result, he caught the healthcare bug at a young age. He has played the piano in nursing homes for many years.
Brian says, “I am very much looking forward to playing piano in the nursing home at NLH and during dinner time.”
Brian is from a small town and likes small towns. He joined the NLH team in September and is very happy to be here. “Everyone is extremely welcoming,” says Brian.
