PLANO, TX – November 2, 2015 — MedSys Group today announced the designation of Marinela Villejo, APN/CNS, MS, CCRN as Senior Strategist within its Advisory Services Division. Ms. Villejo will focus on providing client facing support through integration of clinical, operational, financial and technology expertise to drive the highest level of patient-centered care.
“We are extremely fortunate to have Marinela Villejo join the MedSys team,” Nancy Miracle, RN, Executive Vice President and Chief Nursing Officer said. “Her deep clinical knowledge and extensive operational experience will assist our customers in driving value and results from the HCIT systems they have invested in. Her commitment to improving the patient experience is directly in sync with the MedSys vision of Enabling the Evolution of Healthcare. We are proud that Marinela is now part of our Advisory Services team.”
In 1986, she received her Bachelor’s Degree of Nursing at Loyola University of Chicago, Marcella Niehoff School of Nursing where she provided bedside direct patient care in the Adult Critical Care, Emergency Department, Post-Anesthesia Care Units and gained management experience as an Assistant Nurse Manager. She received her Master’s of Science in Nursing in 1995 from the University of California, San Francisco where she successfully achieved her 2nd license in Illinois as an Advanced Practice Nurse/Certified Clinical Nurse Specialist. In 2000, she transitioned into the Consulting role serving large, academic, high profile organizations. She has held Interim Director, Senior Director and Interim CNO positions in her consulting positions. She has successfully maintained her CCRN certification through the American Association of Critical Care Nurses for 25 years and is a member of the American College of Healthcare Executives.
With nearly 30 years combined acute and ambulatory healthcare consulting and clinical care delivery experience, she has extensive expertise in program management, executive leadership relationships, performance and operational improvement, process redesign, information technology (IT) strategic planning and enhancing executive decision-making in the provider setting.
“Patient-centered care is the forefront of all that we strive for and the critical factor is to include a multidisciplinary approach, not only for their time at the physician’s office, Emergency Department or Inpatient hospital stay but to ensure their discharge readiness has been discussed and planned from the time of admission,” explains Ms. Villejo. “With a high recidivism rate and hospital readmissions, our focus should primarily rest on wellness, disease management and technology toolkits for patient and family access to healthcare 24/7 from their homes or current venue. Complacency of health situations can be replaced with proactiveness. There is always something we can do more efficiently and accurately.”
