SILVER SPRING, MD – The ANA Enterprise announced the appointment of Dr. Oriana Beaudet as Vice President of Nursing Innovation. She assumes this role on December 2, 2019.
Dr. Beaudet will collaborate across the ANA Enterprise to cultivate and disseminate nurse-led innovation that increases the recognition and value of nursing, drives transformational improvements across health care delivery, and positions nurses as integral partners in consumers’ health and health care journeys.
Reporting to Chief Operating Officer/Executive Vice President Gregory Dyson, Dr. Beaudet will work closely with ANA Enterprise Acting Chief Executive Officer Debbie Hatmaker, PhD, RN, FAAN, and other members of the Enterprise Leadership Team. This work will be achieved through collaborative partnerships with industry, academia, health care systems and organizations – across the U.S. and internationally.
According to Beaudet, “In this Enterprise-wide role, I will work with nurses and nursing leaders across our country to develop a strategic national framework for innovation. This work will include building an inclusive and transparent space to ensure the ability for nurses to lead at all levels of society – thereby transforming practice and the health of people across the continuum of care. Nursing has a rich history of creativity and inventing solutions to meet the needs of the people and communities they serve. Innovation is a catalyst and keystone between our profession’s past and future. It’s my sincere belief that nurses can create solutions to some of the greatest challenges of our time.”
Dr. Beaudet has been leading innovative change for more than 15 years through strategic, operational and change management work for nurses, nursing executives, and health systems looking to innovate across their organizations nationally. Most recently she served as Vice President of Transformation with Array Advisors, where she led strategic change management and business development for national health system clients focused on business, technology, and care delivery solutions. Dr. Beaudet completed her doctorate in nursing practice with an emphasis in Health Innovation Leadership and Design from the University of Minnesota School of Nursing.
