I am a VCP2, VCP3, VCP4, and VCP550. Novant Health is a integrated system of 15 medical centers, 1,123 doctors in 343 clinical locations serving 3.5 million people throughout NC, SC, Virginia, and Georgia with 24,400 employees. We have a large and very successful Epic EHR implementation. I have been with Novant Health for 25 years. I was a featured speaker at the first annual NC/SC VMware Summit Event in 2008. I have been a speaker at several VMUG events in Charlotte and Greensboro, NC. I have been invited to blog for Virtualiziation Review and join VMware's Cloud Team. The past two years I have actively participated with a Healthcare Virtualization Community program ran by VMware that connected all VMware Healthcare customers on the east coast via Socialcast and monthly meetings geared towards sharing knowledge and best practice to help each other be more successful for our patients!
