Elaine Mc Donald

Elaine McDonald completed her undergraduate education in Ireland and has been living in New York for 14 years. Since living in New York, she has explored many avenues, including private investigation, hospitality and project management. In 2014 she found her niche when she started working for NYP as an analyst in peri operative services. While in this role, she saw there was a gap in communication with patients family members while their loved ones were in surgery. With the help of her fellow team members, she rolled out one of our biggest success stories: texting family members status updates. This was scaled out to all our campuses at NYPH. After the success of this initiative, she realized that technology is the way forward in providing healthcare and we need to be looking at new innovative ways to giving this to our patients and their families. Hence, here is our project lead for innovation.
