Clinical Assistant Professor, Biomedical and Health Information Sciences
Cathy Bimmerle earned a Master of Science degree in education from Fordham University in New York (1995) and in 2006 completed our BHIS Online IBHE Post Masters Certificate in Health Informatics. Cathy bridged her health informatics studies at UIC with her extensive industry experience in data communications, information systems and applications software sales and successfully transitioned from the declining telecommunications market into the high-growth field of Healthcare IT. Prior to joining the BHIS clinical faculty, Cathy held senior account management positions at AT&T, Lucent Technologies, the American Hospital Association’s for-profit subsidiary, AHA Solutions, and Allscripts, a leading supplier of electronic health record and practice management solutions.
