Through The Eyes of My Colleagues

I am a nurse leader having had the privilege of working with Mr. Mello from 2020-2021 when he joined our team to serve as Chief Information Officer.  As Director of Surgical Services, the technology utilized in my departments gave me opportunity to work with Brett frequently.

Brett is an exemplary leader who is approachable and respectful.  One of the challenges of bridging Information Technology (IT) and nursing is that we do not speak the same language.  Brett always listened intently as I described a situation and he communicated in common vocabulary.  IT can be quite intimidating to a clinician and Brett’s leadership made that a comfortable bridge.

Brett is an experienced leader with a focus on the security of information systems.  Upon his initial assessment of the opportunities for our organization, he went to work improving our safety and security by implementing routine maintenance activities, identifying our downtime capabilities, and ensuring critical equipment was serving our needs.  Brett created educational activities that sharpened our fraud identification skills, heightened our online awareness, and improved our behaviors as users.

You would be well-served to invite Brett Mello into your organization.  He is a thoughtful leader who carries his strength in a kind, calm disposition.  It would be a pleasure to have another opportunity to work with Brett.
