American Family Care Welcomes New Vice President of Information Technology
Date:5/15/2019

Claudius Moore, a seasoned technology executive, joins American Family Care (AFC) as the healthcare network’s new Vice President of Information Technology. Over the last 15 years, Moore has mastered a method to leverage technology to drive revenue and lower costs for healthcare systems, while also creating a high-quality, efficient experience for patients.

Moore will lead AFC’s information technology division, providing support and maintenance of existing systems while developing new technology solutions for the entire healthcare network. American Family Care is headquartered in Birmingham, Alabama, with more than 200 clinics across the nation in more than 25 states.

“We’re thrilled to have Claudius on board as our Vice President of Information Technology,” said D. Bruce Irwin, M.D., CEO and founder of American Family Care. “His extensive knowledge of technology management and his background in healthcare make for a great addition to our team. We are excited to see how he will continue to help AFC medical providers stay ahead of the competition in providing quality, affordable and accessible healthcare.”

Moore has a dual master’s degree in information technology management and business administration from University of Maryland and a bachelor’s degree in public administration from the University of Sierra Leone. In addition, he holds a graduate certificate in computer information science from Catholic University of America and he is a Microsoft certified system administrator (MCSA).

“I’m honored to join American Family Care. I look forward to guiding the company through the many twists and turns of technology to produce optimal results for the business. That translates into more efficient and accessible care for our patients nationwide,” said Claudius Moore, Vice President of Information Technology at AFC. “My passion for medicine goes back to my first hospital job as an orderly, when I escorted heart patients to surgery. They shared their fears about their operations with me and I comforted them, realizing healthcare was my passion.”

Moore worked his way up through the ranks of the hospital. Within a few months, he became a registrar, then shifted to the billing department, then to health information management, all while he was studying computer and information science. “My early hospital experience showed me how technology can frustrate patients. They’re giving their information to a provider and suddenly the computer screen goes black because of some kink in the system, and then they must start over,” he explains. “I’ve worked through the years to eliminate patient frustration. I’ve identified methods and technology that provide open and easy access to healthcare, while also enabling medical staff to treat patients effectively and efficiently,” Moore explains.

Previously, Moore served as Chief Information Officer of South Bend Clinic, in South Bend, Indiana, a regional hospital system, Vice President of Information Services at Physician Hospital System in Mishawaka, Indiana and Director of Information and Revenue Systems at Howard University Hospital in Washington, DC.

“The role of information technology in healthcare is always evolving,” Moore says. “At AFC, we are constantly working to make it easy for patients to get access to care. Not only to make an appointment through our website, but to log in and see results, medications and insight about their care. We are providing more than urgent care. We are engaging with the patient and sharing vital details. The goal is to help them maintain a healthy lifestyle.”

All AFC clinics are designed, equipped and staffed to provide accessible primary care, urgent care and minor emergency treatment. Each clinic features a high-tech approach, including digital x-rays, on-site lab testing, state-of-the-art diagnostics and electronic medical records. The clinics are staffed by kind, caring and compassionate healthcare professionals.
