Senior HHS Strategist, Eric Henrichsen, Joins SLI Global Solutions

SLI Global Solutions is pleased to welcome Eric Henrichsen, former CIO of Nebraska’s Department of Health and Human Services, to our Government Solutions Division. Eric joins SLI Global as a Senior Manager and HHS Strategist. During his five-year tenure as CIO for Nebraska’s DHHS, the largest agency in the state, Eric provided technology vision and leadership in the development and implementation of DHHS IT capabilities. His time at DHHS coincided with the implementation of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and major investment into the modernization of Medicaid systems and those of other Human Services programs. Eric provided the strategic and tactical planning, development, evaluation, and coordination of the information and technology systems to support these historic initiatives.

Before joining the public sector, Eric was a proven IT leader in Nebraska’s private payer insurance community including Blue Cross Blue Shield of Nebraska as Director of IS Program Management, and at Mutual of Omaha as Senior Vice President of IS Applications. His leadership in both public and private sector health insurance lends tremendous credibility to SLI’s strategy for oversight and advisory services in the HHS arena.

“Eric is a significant addition to SLI’s cadre of senior HHS consultants and we are thrilled to have him on our team”, said Steve Esposito, Senior VP of Government Solutions. “Eric’s insights into the strategic objectives of State HHS agencies and the challenges facing these programs are second to none. His understanding of the risks associated with large-scale HHS implementations is a real value to SLI and our clients.” Steve added, “Eric has strong relationships with executives at federal oversight and funding agencies and understands their concerns and priorities related to state IT projects, which will guide our focus as States adjust to new CMS rules for modular replacement and incremental certification of their Medicaid management systems.”

“This is a historic time for IT advances to improve the delivery of HHS services,” Eric observed, “I am excited to join SLI’s talented group of consultants and add my experience to help states with their IT initiatives. I am looking to collaborate with states on traversing the challenges of large state IT projects to deliver successful results for them. Today’s investment in IT will lay the foundation for a new era of state systems and new approaches to system delivery.”

Eric is a nationally recognized HHS IT thought leader and frequent speaker at the APHSA – ISM and MESC conferences. He served as the APHSA – State Representative for ISM.
