Optum executive Melissa Fannin has joined CNSI as senior vice president of federal business development, less than a week after former Michigan and Utah budget chief John Nixon came aboard the health IT solutions provider.
“I am thrilled to join the innovative and client-focused team at CNSI,” Fannin said. “As we help our clients navigate a complex healthcare system, I look forward to adding value with my highly diverse background and passion for what we do to help our clients improve health outcomes and lower healthcare costs.”
Fannin’s experience in health care is extensive. After receiving a nursing degree from the University of Maryland Baltimore and eventually a master’s degree in health informatics and IT from Johns Hopkins, she spent over 25 years in leadership roles in both the private and public sectors. She spent time at the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services and the Food and Drug Administration as well as consulting for the Affordable Care Act.
“We are very pleased to welcome Melissa to CNSI,” said CNSI CEO Todd Stottlemyer. “Melissa is a dynamic leader with deep expertise in healthcare and information technology. We are excited to have her join the CNSI team to help us significantly expand our work for Federal Government healthcare clients.”
