A message from AIM’s President and CEO, Gina Bianco (Perez)
“We have been so fortunate to have had the opportunity to work on so many meaningful projects that serve communities across the country. I am most proud of my team and the culture for altruism they share—they are talented, dedicated professionals who believe in the work we do and support our customers with commitment and enthusiasm. Our focus on customer service and tangible deliverables is the foundation from which AIM was built. I want AIM to be known for being the best, thus our web address: www.aim2bbest.com. As a client of other consulting firms I was often frustrated by the lack of depth and useable outcomes. As a consultant, I am committed to taking the time to understand my clients and their needs; and to provide them with services and deliverables that help them to be best.”
Gina is currently working with the Jefferson Health Information Exchange (JHIE) in Southern Oregon. In the role of Acting Director of the JHIE, she is actively involved with the region’s coordinated care organizations, commercial health plans, hospitals and physicians to develop the business case for data analytics in HIE, which will support accountable care models aimed at improving quality and efficiency while managing health care costs.
Ms. Bianco holds a Master’s Degree in Public Administration with a certificate in Health Care Administration and Bachelor of Science Degree in Business Administration and Marketing.
Because every HIE and community is different, it is important to AIM to be nimble so that we can bring the best and brightest to each project based on the needs of our client. As such, we keep a lean organization, and work with experts across the country in various fields to ensure that the right person, with the right expertise is on-the-job. Such individuals hold skills and proven experience in health information technology, project management, and communications, for example.
