Scott Kashman, FACHEBrian and I worked together at Ascension Health’s subsidiary, Carondelet Health in Kansas City. Brian’s strong leadership played a key role on our Information Systems department. Brian was responsible for implementing and integrating new technology. One major conversion stands out where Brian led the effort every step of the way including serving as our Incident Commander through the process. His communication skills are superb and he has a great strength in physician and staff relations.

Brian and I continue to stay in touch and he is invaluable guiding me with technology and social media communication integration.

Brian’s strong leadership skills, physician relationships, understanding of organizational processes and technology served our organization well.  ~Scott Kashman
