SALT welcomes Craig York to the team as our Chief Information Officer.
"I am thrilled to join the team at SALT Dental Collective and help drive innovation in the dental industry," Craig said. "I look forward to leveraging my experience and expertise to develop new strategies and solutions that will enhance the patient experience and improve overall dental care."
Craig is a business-first IT leader with more than 20 years of healthcare leadership experience. Technology is a core strength, but Craig lives in the world of business challenges. He is focused on solving those challenges first and foremost and delivering pragmatic value to the business. Craig can effectively bridge the often-wide communication gap between specialized technicians and visionary business leaders to connect opportunities through technical innovation.
From an IT perspective, Craig is building infrastructure that empowers and enables the business—enabling partner organizations to study patient outcomes and operational performance, and make better decisions for the future of their practices. He is also responsible for the security and integrity of information. Craig is forward-thinking and actively engaged in finding the best solutions for our doctor partners, our practices, and our patients.
Craig is a Certified Health Care CIO (offered by the College of Health Care Information Management Executives) and a Certified Information Security Manager (CISM offered by the Information Systems Audit and Control Association aka ISACA).
"We are excited to welcome Craig to the SALT Dental Collective team," said Dylan Bates, CEO of SALT Dental Collective. "His experience and qualifications make him an ideal candidate to lead our IT operations and support our goal of delivering the highest quality dental care to our patients and our partners."
