Former Executive Director of Technology for Boston-based Steward Healthcare and healthcare information technology consultant, Mr. Sheehan brings 17 years of industry experience and market insight to X-Factor Communications.
Mr. Sheehan is part of the X-Factor team attending the 2013 International MUSE Conference, where the company will be demonstrating its digital media publishing & distribution platform including mass notifications, emergency alerts, and intranet integration.
“We are delighted to welcome Jim to the team,” said Charles Saracino, X-Factor’s CEO. “Jim brings on the ground experience as well as an extraordinary vision for how real-time communications can improve patient care, hospital performance, and bottom line results.”
X-Factor’s intuitive mass notification and digital media solutions help hospitals and healthcare facilities disseminate real-time messages and alerts connecting clinicians and front-line staff to SharePoint or intranet resources, improving operational efficiency and maintaining Joint Commission compliance and regulatory standards. In addition, X-Factor’s easy-to-use, interactive platform helps communications professionals and IT teams create and deliver “any content” quickly and easily into SharePoint or any Intranet environment.
“I’m excited to join X-Factor’s team and bring these products to the healthcare sector,” Mr. Sheehan said. “Having been responsible for overseeing customer service and IT operations, as well as being part of IT Administration, the benefits of the Digital Screen Control Portal are clear and will be of great value to the industry. With single point broadcasting to a widespread audience, or precision messaging to a targeted workgroup, the benefits extend beyond publishing patient safety best practices and industry compliance information, to emergency communication and crisis management.”
