VP, Platform Strategy
Bo Dagnall is the VP of Platform Strategy for Graphite Health with a background in health informatics and enterprise architecture. As a health informatician, Bo understands the unique data and information challenges in the healthcare industry, exhibited by his experience with clinical terminologies, information models, healthcare standards (e.g., HL7, FHIR), decision support, knowledge management and analytics. As an enterprise architect, Bo is adept at understanding the big picture and aligning the pieces for an optimal solution. The combination of these two skill sets enables Bo to excel at understanding, delivering, and overseeing healthcare related opportunities, technologies, and solutions.
Before joining our team at Graphite, Bo worked for Perspecta (and with previous parent companies: EDS, HP/HPE and DXC) since 2003. While most of this time has been in support for the VA, Bo has worked directly on customer deliverables as well as internal innovation projects as an architect, informatician, and chief technologist. He supported projects including electronic health record repositories, SOA services, analytics and BI platforms, clinical data interoperability, clinical user experience design, and clinical terminologies and information models. Bo also spent over 3 years in Australia standing up an enterprise architecture office for Queensland Health. In this role, Bo established architecture processes, vision, governance and deliverables defining the roadmap for Queensland Health’s eHealth initiative.
Bo excels at communicating complex concepts to a variety of audiences and regularly engages with leaders in the industry at large. He takes the visions and innovations around healthcare interoperability, systems design, analytics, mobility, cloud and internet of things (IoT) and turns them into actual solutions. With his depth of experience and understanding in the healthcare space, Bo routinely presents at industry tradeshows and events speaking on the state of healthcare IT, the use and adoption of standards, optimal solution architectures and emerging trends and technologies.
With a series of accomplishments as impressive as Bo’s, we are lucky he discovered medical informatics at the last minute while applying for med school and pursued it with a passion. Between following his kids through their various activities and writing beat/slam poetry, Bo is working to create pragmatic solutions that improve healthcare.
