Ann E. Hanford, MA, BSN, RN | NYU Winthrop Hospital
Assistant Vice President of Capacity Management and Patient Flow Optimization
Her passion for automation and data led her to successfully implementing a stand-alone electronic ICU nursing documentation system in the early days of the healthcare “computer age.” Ann challenged and grew her organization’s IT department capabilities early on with the successful implementation of their first internet/web based healthcare application: an electronic admission request system on behalf of patients whose discharge plan included inpatient post-acute care. Ann was most recently instrumental in advancing electronic automation of patient care at her organization when she implemented her own custom inpatient scheduling system for all ancillary tests & procedures. Ann holds a Master’s Degree in Nursing Informatics from New York University along with a Bachelor of Science degree in Nursing.
