Galen in the Spotlight: Fall 2016

Galen in the Spotlight: Fall 2016


Each quarter, we take a moment to recognize the employees that continue to grow and excel at Galen.

 It’s officially Fall and with that time to reflect on Galen’s third quarter. It’s been a busy one!

Promotions:

Julie Champagne has transitioned to our marketing department, as an Associate Marketing Consultant. She will expand her current marketing focus, but will also continue to support the Burlington office and the Leadership team. Congratulations Julie!

Perpetually Learn and Share:

One of the Core fundamental elements of Galen that makes us unique and a leader in the industry is obtaining and sharing knowledge. With a thirst for knowledge and the desire to enhance the knowledge and skills of our Consultants, Galen has developed several Advance Certification courses. The curriculum and certification plans were created by Galen’s leading subject matter experts in the various courses of study. Consultants must master the course’s written and configuration exams prior to being awarded the Advanced Certification title.

Congratulations to the following individuals who earned the Galen Certified™ titles in the flowing fields of study:

Meaningful Use Certification Exam

Jon Deitch 

15.1 note add-on exam

Barry Chamberland

While she may not have earned a certification, it is certainly worth applauding Maxwell Stroud on her creation and organization of the “Women in Health IT Retreat.” Check out the article written about it in Health Standards here. 

Giving Back:

At Galen, we like to give back to the communities that have given us so much. Once a quarter, Galeneers are able to volunteer at an organization of their choice and support a cause close to their heart. It’s time that the company offers without team members having to take PTO.

Vermont Code Camp is a full day event that brings together technology community members, students and professionals from around Vermont and beyond. They rely on sponsors to allow them to put on this fabulous and free event, which is why Galen chose to become a Platinum sponsor at this year’s camp.  Present at the event were three members of Galen’s Development team, Michael Tamlyn, Michael Commo, and John Need. Commo also volunteered his time to help organize food and beverage. There was so much money saved on food and drink this year that along with some extra donation, they were able to help cover some of the cost of the presenters who traveled across the country to share their expertise. Being able to reduce or eliminate the out of pocket cost is a big step forward for the event. John Need was also a presenter at the event.  He spoke about Rock Solid CSS Architecture and Death Defying Feats of Debuggery. Thank you to the Galen team for helping to make VT Code Camp 8 such a huge success!

Every year, a group of crazy Galeneers take part in the 100on100 Relay. A 100-mile team running race along scenic Route 100 in Vermont. It is the ultimate test of strength, comradery, and how long you can stay awake—being that we all started our journey at 5am and didn’t return home until 1am.. The course starts at the beautiful Trapp Family Lodge in Stowe and finishes at Okemo Mountain Resort in Ludlow. While the scenery along the way may be gorgeous, it’s not quite enough to distract you from the grueling, hilly, Vermont terrain. But our Galeneers are a determined bunch, they conquered it all and had fun along the way!  Thank you to the whole 100on100 organization for putting on such a great event! For more information check out their website: http://www.100on100.org/, you can also donate to their Heart of Vermont charity which benefits the Boys and Girls Club of Vermont here.
