Halo Highlight: Chris Hannah
“Halo Highlight” is a series of interviews showcasing our unique and talented team members. This week, we sat down with Nursing Informatics Consultant Chris Hannah, MSN, MBA, RN-BC to learn more about how he found his role at Halo, where he sees the company going, and what’s on his bucket list.
How did you find Halo Communications?
I think it’s safe to say that Halo found me and reached out via LinkedIn. At the time, I was open to changing roles but wasn’t actively job hunting or anything. I fortunately ended up at Halo, and it’s been a great experience so far! We’re all helping each other reach our goals, while learning from what we’ve done to prepare for future implementations and projects.
What aspect of your role do you enjoy the most?
I love that I can use my clinical knowledge to help thousands of people. My input has a broad impact, and I’m working at a company that is becoming one of the most prominent communications companies.
Where do you see the company going?
As our technologies evolve, I think we’ll continue to pay special attention to specific workflows and healthcare problems to set us apart from the competition. We’ll make it our goal to focus on the patient and prioritize minimizing alerts to prevent provider burnout.
If you could switch jobs with anyone at the company, who would it be?
I’d like to learn more about our mobile and web technologies so a member from the Clinical Technology Team (CTT) would be cool! Having the knowledge to know how to fix everything and making sure things work is always good to have.
What’s your motto?
Never finish learning. I’m always trying to expand my knowledge and because I want to know a little bit of everything, I find myself all over the place sometimes. For instance, I’ve been spending my time studying nursing informatics, healthcare informatics, and any other unfamiliar technologies that would help me in my role.
What’s on your bucket list?
A few things, actually. It’d be amazing to go to Thailand. There’s a neat combination of cities and landscapes that I’d love to explore and see for myself. I would also like to become a pilot and as clichéd as it sounds, I’ll have to go skydiving one of these days.
What’s your go-to drink from the coffee machine?
Triple café latte with an extra shot of espresso.
