Most mid-level IT managers are “accidental leaders” without any formal leadership or business training. These professionals frequently have strong technical skills but are lacking the business acumen to successfully support the incredible digital transformation occurring in healthcare.
The Kirby Partners’ Healthcare Technology Leadership Experience (Healthcare TechLX) is a comprehensive technology leadership program that solves this problem. The Healthcare TechLX transforms high-potential managers and directors into business savvy, value-driven and innovative leaders.
Brought to you in partnership with Ouellette & Associates, Healthcare TechLX is the most comprehensive leadership development experience custom-built for IT leaders. TechLX is recognized as a top ten IT leadership development program by CIO.com.
“I recently spoke with a CEO at a multi-billion dollar health system about the tremendous need for CIOs and their teams to evolve from technology experts to business leaders who excel in technology,” said Judy Kirby, President of Kirby Partners. “I’ve seen the need for a technology leadership program for mid-level IT managers for a long time. Healthcare TechLX uniquely helps IT professionals develop the leadership skills critical to success in a digital age. We’re thrilled to partner with Ouellette & Associates to bring their acclaimed program to the healthcare IT community,” Kirby said.
The Healthcare TechLX is a 12-month leadership development program, conducted virtually for mid-level IT managers that:
- Equips your team members for their next role in your organization
- Positions your high-potential leaders to take on tomorrow’s C-level roles
- Builds a strong talent brand so you can attract, engage, and retain the best workforce
- Future-proofs your organization by developing leaders with the competencies to help your organization compete, differentiate, and continue to grow in an increasingly disruptive market
The Healthcare TechLX program includes:

These workshops are designed to help managers transition from an IT solution provider to a strategic partner, and ultimately to an “innovative anticipator” delivering game-changing value to their health system.
