Lonnie Buchanan
Lonnie ensures that Intermountain's architecture aligns with strategic direction and that Intermountain's I.S. assets are overseen in a standard and collaborative fashion across the organization. Lonnie is keenly aware of the industry's exponential change of pace and works diligently to give Intermountain an agile, well-designed, and adaptable enterprise architecture that brings business need and technology together at the optimal point. Lonnie's architecture efforts require that he maintain an understanding of the intricate aspects of I.S. in the organization, including software development, data management, operational infrastructure, and support needs. Lonnie also leads the TeleHealth development team for Intermountain. His work with the TeleHealth team addresses the need to increase patient-to-provider and provider-to-provider interaction through telecommunications technologies. This team developed a custom product to provide video and audio connectivity for TeleHealth interactions between providers, patients, and clinicians. Currently, this system is used in Intensive Care Units, Emergency Departments, Labor and Delivery Units, Intermountain Primary Children's TeleHealth suite, and for additional programs including craniofacial clinics, genetic counseling, and outpatient psychiatry.
