Mibelli Tapped as Director of Government Affairs and Client Programs

CHAPEL HILL, N.C., March 2, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- TSI Healthcare announces the promotion and appointment of Christian Mibelli as Director of Government Affairs and Client Programs. Mr. Mibelli is a graduate of UNC Chapel Hill's top ranked Gillings School of Global Public Health. In addition to his duties at TSI, he has actively served on various advisory groups for academic, non-profit, and corporate organizations focusing on further improving policy, both healthcare and otherwise, on a local and national level.

Mibelli is a regularly featured speaker throughout the Southeast and Mid-Atlantic regions of the country. Since working at TSI, he has addressed local and regional MGMA associations, medical specialty societies, and other physician groups seeking more information regarding government funding for EHR technology.

Two of TSI's most significant and acclaimed programs will be under the direction of Mibelli including the TSI Circle of Excellence™ (COE) program and TSI's Meaningful Use Readiness Analysis™ (MURA). As the Director of the Government Affairs & Client Programs Group, Mibelli will lead the deployment and oversight of each of these programs which are designed to further develop clients' success beyond initial system implementation.

The Circle of Excellence™ program, created in late 2009, is designed to recognize and reward existing TSI clients for maximizing the use of their NextGen™ CCHIT Certified EHR and EPM systems. The COE program also serves as an added opportunity to encourage clients to use these technologies to further improve patient care.

TSI's Meaningful Use Readiness Analysis™ (MURA) further compliments the COE program and was designed to help determine each practice's eligibility for stimulus incentives. The analysis includes over 150 key indicators that are designed to determine the group's system core utilization and are electronically "matched" to the 25 "meaningful use objectives."

"We are very proud of the work Christian has already done for TSI and for our valued clients. We look forward to his continued leadership and innovation as he accepts his new responsibility as Director of our Government Affairs and Client Programs," says Donnie Williams, Vice President of Client Services.
