Interview by Janisse Mitchell, MPH
had the pleasure of interviewing LaTonya R. Bynum, MPH, CHES for the Effective Information Technology for Healthcare Organizations course offered in the Doctorate in Health Science program at the University. Ms. Bynum is the founder and CEO at Utilize Research for Access ( URA) Resource Center, LLC. As Ms. Bynum stated, she provides tailored resources to support communities using no- cost publicly accessible and secure systems to exchange health information to professionals, consultants, and government contractors. I was interested in interviewing her for several reasons. She has over 20 years’ experience in Health Information Technology, is an app developer, serves as a consultant, and has over 12 years’ experience as a Senior Analyst- Software Support Analyst working at the department of health. I also learned that she is a Technical editor that explains high- level thinking from the data and breaks it down into plain language for clients.
