We are really excited to blog about our latest customer, Dr. Geeta Nayyar. Dr. Nayyar moved to Miami over a year ago and is working full time with AT&T while part time at her practice. She is the Chief Medical Information Office for AT&T and currently guides their health portfolio’s strategy. Modern Healthcare has named her one of the “Top 25 minority Healthcare Executives” and one “Top 8 Women to watch for in Healthcare”. She is also a member for American College of Rheumatology and the Association of Medical Directors of Information Systems.
Dr. Nayyar has been a rockstar since she was young! She got into medical school right out high school at the age of 17 at the University of Miami. Then she started her residency at George Washington University and also completed her fellowship there as well, in rheumatology. Dr. Nayyar did not have a clear idea of what she wanted to do clinically, but without doubt she did not expect all of her efforts would have taken her to become the CMIO at AT&T! Once she completed her fellowship at GW she decided to take it one step further by getting her MBA. She took on a variety of projects that included how to improve EMR or Electronic Medical Records for patients and doctors. Her background with revenues and accounts receivables from her MBA gave her an outside perspective on how to resolve these issues.
She currently has been the CMIO for over a year now, “I’ve really enjoyed working for AT&T because it’s a company with so much breadth and scalability. There’s a lot of opportunity to make an impact on the industry in a significant way. It’s been great because my role is a new role, so it’s been fun to craft it and shape it.”
Dr. Nayyar is currently on the board for HIMSS board of directors and is helping to hold the annual conference banquet.
The HIMSS Awards Banquet is a time for celebration and for recognizing members who have added their unique sparkle and verve to the industry. Lifetime achievement, scholarship programs, activities and publications — HIMSS honors individuals, groups and organizations for significant contributions to the Society, their organizations or to the health IT profession. Come toast their accomplishments at this year’s elegant event!
Dr. Nayyar came to us looking for an outfit that she could wear at this year’s banquet. She was specifically looking for something that was modern, but elegant. We were honored she came to us to help represent her at this banquet.
Thank you Dr. Nayyar for choosing Silk Threads to represent all of the wonderful work you do in the medicinal world. We are so thankful we could help you in any way. How gorgeous does she look in her saree?
