Logicalis US’ Kim Garriott Named to CRN’s 2017 Women of the Channel Power 30 List

Solution Provider’s Top Healthcare IT Consultant Recognized for Professional Accomplishments and Expertise

NEW YORK, May 23, 2017 – Logicalis US, an international IT solutions and managed services provider (www.us.logicalis.com), announced today that CRN, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Kim Garriott, Principal Consultant, Healthcare Strategies, to its list of 2017 Power 30 Solution Providers, an elite subset of its prestigious annual Women of the Channel list.

CRN’s editorial team selects Women of the Channel honorees based on their professional accomplishments, demonstrated expertise and ongoing dedication to the channel. The Power 30 Solution Providers belong to an exclusive group drawn from this larger list: women leaders in solution provider organizations whose vision and influence are key drivers of their companies’ success and help move the entire IT channel forward.

Well-known throughout the field of healthcare IT, Garriott is responsible for the development and expansion of the Logicalis Healthcare Solutions professional services practice. Over the past year, Garriott has helped Logicalis hone its consultative healthcare IT business strategy, focusing on clients’ most detailed business practices and workflows to create IT solutions that will deliver the business results they need and expect. Her wide array of national – and recently, as a keynote speaker at HIMSS Middle East, international – industry speaking engagements has elevated Garriott’s strong reputation as an expert in the field and has expanded Logicalis’ footprint in the healthcare IT market. Garriott co-founded the HIMSS-SIIM Enterprise Imaging Workgroup and continues to serve as its co-chair today; she has been published in The Journal of the American College of Radiology and The Journal of Digital Imaging; and, prior to joining Logicalis, designed and implemented the Cleveland Clinic’s enterprise imaging strategy, widely recognized as the most advanced enterprise imaging program in the world.

“While healthcare CIOs are certainly interested in technologies like telehealth and enterprise imaging that can optimize the healthcare experience, there has been a significant shift in the way enterprise IT leaders – healthcare or otherwise – view technology as a whole. Technology, and in fact the entire function of IT, is now strictly about meeting the organization’s business goals.  In healthcare, that means relying on the significant ways IT can enhance clinical workflows and business operations to deliver better patient outcomes while keeping costs in check. And we have to ask ourselves, as IT solution providers, how we can help our clients meet those kinds of business objectives,” Garriott says.  “That’s why I am especially excited about being recognized among the Power 30 on CRN’s prestigious Women of the Channel list this year; it means our message is resonating in the market.  Since taking a service-defined approach to IT and developing a digital transformation strategy are quickly becoming the cornerstones for success in virtually every vertical market today, this is a change those of us in the channel must not only be willing and able to identify, but one we must embrace. In IT, it’s our job to help CIOs better understand how a digitally driven organization can deliver the results they’re working toward and to deliver the technology solutions that will support that journey.”

“These extraordinary executives support every aspect of the channel ecosystem, from technical innovation to marketing to business development, working tirelessly to keep the channel moving into the future,” says Robert Faletra, CEO of The Channel Company. "They are developing fresh go-to-market strategies, strengthening the channel’s network of partnerships and building creative new IT solutions, among many other contributions. We congratulate all the 2017 Women of the Channel on their stellar accomplishments and look forward to their future success.”

The 2017 Women of the Channel and Power 30 Solution Provider lists will be featured in the June issue of CRN Magazine and online at www.CRN.com/wotc
