New BORN Director

BORN Welcomes Jon Kimball as Director

Jon Kimball has been selected as Director effective September 14, 2015. Jon has over 18 years hands-on experience implementing systems and technology with a focus on improving health care through the better use of technology – also a key emphasis of BORN. He has a proven track record of understanding the complexities of healthcare and harnessing information to make a difference. 
Jon joins us from Cancer Care Ontario (CCO) where he has been a manager since 2010.  In his CCO role, Jon has established relationships with many of the same organizations that BORN currently works with including LHIN’s, Canada Health Infoway, eHealth Ontario, Ontario MD and others.  He has also focused on improving processes and outcomes leveraging technology and key clinical expertise.  Prior to CCO he worked in a number of organizations in Canada and the United States and in many different capacities (consultant, manager, chief technical advisor, senior systems engineer).

In previous positions Jon has been responsible for strategic planning, technology selection, joint application development, reporting, capacity planning, and project and resource management.  Through these roles, he has gained an impressive skillset that will be directly transferrable to BORN’s continued work towards our vision of the best possible beginnings for lifelong health.

Jon will be a welcome addition to the senior leadership team of BORN.  We are incredibly grateful to Dr. Ann Sprague for her efforts as acting director, strong leadership and commitment since Mari Teitelbaum left the role.  We know that Ann will enjoy returning to her real passion – leading the team responsible for use of BORN data to support perinatal clinical care, performance management and quality improvement, and research.
