Shaun Alfreds Named Acting CEO of HealthInfoNet

Shaun began working with HealthInfoNet in 2007 as a consultant, assisting with developing return on investment analyses for HIE in Maine, supporting the development of HealthInfoNet’s business model, helping to identify funding sources, and grant writing.

In 2010, when HealthInfoNet was awarded grant monies to expand HIE services statewide, Shaun officially joined the organization as HealthInfoNet’s Chief Operating Officer – tasked with scaling the operations of the HIE statewide in alignment with the federal and state funds supporting it.

In his role of Chief Operating Officer, Shaun had direct oversight over the information and client services, finance and human resources. Shaun also served as the Principle Investigator for all of HealthInfoNet’s major grant programs including the Regional Extension Center, the State Innovation Model Grant and the Robert Wood Johnson Data Across Sectors for Health program.

This transition is focused on building upon the remarkable innovation and success that HealthInfoNet has achieved over the past eleven years.

“Shaun’s experience and strengths in the areas of information technology operations, contract negotiation, public sector innovation, and organizational development and finance along with over 15 years of industry experience position him to successfully lead HealthInfoNet and bring his vision of interoperability innovation in Maine forward,” said Board Chair David Howes, MD.

“I am honored to take on this new role and know I have big shoes to fill,” said Alfreds. “I am grateful to Dev and to the Board for the opportunity to lead HealthInfoNet in accomplishing the mission of advancing the innovative use of technology and data to support improved patient outcomes and health reform.”

Shaun maintains a faculty appointment in the Department of Family Medicine and Community Health at the University of Massachusetts Medical School and is a member of the Board of Strategic Advisors of the Health Delivery Institute at the Worcester Polytechnic Institute. Shaun also serves on multiple federal advisory committees dealing with interoperability. He received a Master’s degree in Business Administration from the University of Maine and is a Certified Professional in Health Information Technology.

Shaun, a Massachusetts native, moved to Maine in 2006. Shaun enjoys hiking and boating around Maine and lives with his wife and three children in Cumberland.
