Lexington, Ky. –September 15, 2020 – As the Nymbl team welcomes its newest advisor, Brian Sandager, to its Advisor Panel, we are eager to learn from his guidance and apply his years of industry experience to improve our organization. Sandager will be its first advisor outside of the Orthotic and Prosthetic industry. He will join our current advisors Lesleigh Sisson, Chris Doerger, and Glenn Matsushima. Sandager, the 2020 recipient of Washington Exec’s Chief Operating Officer of the Year award, brings operational, macroeconomics of healthcare, and large-scale healthcare information technology experience to the team.
A graduate from the University of Kansas, Sandager earned his bachelor’s degree in Business Administration and Accounting. In 2001, Sandager joined Cerner Corporation and quickly moved into a financial role supporting the consulting business across the world. Over the next decade, he managed Cerner’s life sciences business on the West Coast, led operations in Australia and delivered new business in Southeast Asia before moving on to lead Cerner’s Central European businesses. Upon returning to the US in 2010, he led delivery and growth across multiple states and large health systems before being appointed CIO for Circle Health in Massachusetts. During the last two decades, Sandager gained indispensable knowledge about the health care industry and emerged as an industry and corporate leader.
In April 2019, Sandager moved into a new role as the first Chief Operating Officer of Cerner Government Services, a wholly owned subsidiary of Cerner Corporation, which is focused on transforming how the government delivers health care by bringing the best of its commercial practices, breakthrough innovation and global experience to serve the unique missions of its federal military and civilian health clients including the Department of Veterans Affairs, the Department of Defense and the U.S Coast Guard.
When Sandager was asked about his primary focus at Cerner, he stated, “Our focus will remain on the transformation of health care. Our Veterans, Service members and caregivers deserve the best health care possible. As a nation, we need to evolve how we deliver health care as our economy and future depends on it.”
