Next Chapter Event 




Join the Society for Information Management (SIM) Toronto Chapter, for a moderated discussion about Fariba’s journey in leading a business transformation at AcuteNet a provider of breakthrough healthcare services


Senior technology leaders are challenged and wonder how they might orchestrate and enhance their career path by taking on premier responsibilities for business leadership.  This dinner discussion will share the lessons and experiences of Fariba Anderson in her transition from being a CIO to becoming the CEO of  AcuteNet.


Such a transition into business leadership can involve many questions like:

  • How does one’s technical experience prepare you for business leadership?
  • What are the major differences & lessons regarding leadership expectations?
  • How does one manage an expanded eco-system of stakeholders?
  • What are the governance implications of dealing with owners, boards etc.?
  • Where & how to adopt tech driven models from “The Sharing Economy
  • How might market characteristics influence options, plans & partnerships?


Recognized by CIO Review Magazine in 2016 and 2018 as one of the 50 Most Promising Healthcare Solution Providers, Fariba will share her experiences in transforming AcuteNet into a Sharing Economy Platform” enabled through trusted partnerships to provide the cash-strapped industry of healthcare payers and providers with an economical capability.


Learn, understand and join an open discussion about the options, stakeholder perspectives, trade-offs and the decisions that were made to put the organization on a trajectory for renewed growth and success.


Acquire new insights and share your views about the factors that have enabled AcuteNet to grow to support 2.8M+ patients in 2 short years.  Discuss and debate how breakthrough concepts like those fueling “Sharing Economy” business models might be leveraged to achieve business goals and replicate the attention AcuteNet is receiving during trade missions to markets in the U.S., Saudi Arabia, Japan and Korea.
