President and CEO Attends White House Business Council Forum

CAMBRIDGE, MA – The White House continues to recognize Vecna as an industry leader and innovator in healthcare IT. On Monday, 26 March, Vecna’s President, Deborah Theobald, participated in a White House Business Council Forum hosted in Boston, MA. The forum, “A Careful Eye Towards Consequences: Why Regulations are Good—Again,” featured Cass Sunstein, Administrator for the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs (OIRA) from the White House’s Office of Management and Budget.

The roundtable forum is one of many gatherings that feature in the President’s plan for America’s economic growth, as outlined in his State of the Union address earlier this year. Like the White House Business Council event attended by Vecna CTO Daniel Theobald in February, this most recent forum was designed to gather feedback from business leaders on a local level. The event also sought to inform these leaders about the regulatory changes that the OIRA has effected.

Due to both domestic and international demand for Vecna’s solutions in the healthcare space, the company has grown substantially since 2010. Theobald says, “Vecna continues to bring high-tech jobs to the Boston area, and we are honored to receive recognition for our growth and economic leadership. Because of our commitment to excellence, we value the opportunity to collaborate with our government and business peers on the local and national level.”

Vecna develops software that reduces the burden of paperwork and enforces patient privacy in the healthcare industry. Theobald remarks, “We are passionate about improving efficiency and reducing costs for healthcare providers while also adhering to the critical regulations around sensitive patient data. We want both patients and providers to know that their information is protected on every platform from mainframe to mobile apps. The opportunity to meet with Mr. Sunstein provided useful insights about how we can best navigate this regulatory landscape, move beyond meaningful use, and better serve our clients in the process.”
