About Phil Stravers

“The combination of healthcare and IT is nothing but potential. I am completely convinced that success lies in balancing the right disciplines: People, Process and Technology. This is why healthcare IT is such a good fit for me. I love organizing teams toward a common goal and helping people create a more positive future. Most importantly, I love doing that in towns where people know each other. That’s why after 20 years doing this, I still have no problem getting in my pickup at 4 a.m. to drive out to a remote Nebraska town to talk to a group of people about how we make IT work better. It’s a passion for me.”

Phil Stravers has been an advocate for community healthcare since joining ICE in 1995. Prior to joining ICE, he started and oversaw a national help desk supporting technology systems for engineering and architectural design. Since acquiring ICE with Keith in 2003, Phil has guided the development of a services portfolio tailored specifically for community healthcare providers’ distinct IT needs. Phil was instrumental in the development of ICE’s focus on community healthcare. Phil routinely presents and educates through various healthcare associations, such as the Healthcare Information Management Systems Society (HIMSS), Healthcare Financial Management Association (HFMA) and National Rural Health Association (NRHA).
