Optimum Healthcare IT, a Best in KLAS healthcare staffing and consulting services firm, announced that they have added Brenda Ashley BSN, RN, as the new Vice President of the Last Mile Training program. She joins Optimum with twenty years of extensive clinical and healthcare IT program and project management experience.

Ms. Ashley has experience in all aspects of implementation management, including leading large teams through system design and development, operational readiness, leadership advisory services, and clinical application support. She has been a trusted technical advisor supporting new client development activities and providing support to established clients.

Brenda’s extensive experience and deep understanding of healthcare IT provides a solid foundation for her to lead our new Last Mile Training program, “said Jason Jarrett, CEO of Optimum Healthcare IT. One of the benefits of the Last Mile Training program is that trainees will develop knowledge and skills for a deeper understanding of the healthcare IT industry, and Brenda will do a great job facilitating that.

Optimum’s Last Mile Training program partners with education providers to bridge the gap after graduation by providing training and placement.  The program’s approach is unique compared to many colleges, universities, boot camps, or learning platforms. Traditionally, participants pay to learn skills with no guarantee of a job at the end. With Optimum’s Last Mile Training program accepted applicants will be hired by Optimum and paid to train. After completing training, trainees will join Optimum project teams serving hospital systems around the United States.

I am honored and excited to be joining Optimum Healthcare IT. The Last Mile Training Program is just what is needed today to prepare intelligent people with the real-world skills that it takes in the workplace, said Brenda Ashley. As someone who has worked my way up through the ranks throughout my career, I can share the knowledge I have learned with trainees and the employers they ultimately will serve after program completion.
