2021 Emerging Leader of the Year: Sheridan Cook

Sheridan Cook, Consulting Manager – Gevity part of Accenture

Sheridan works to promote and advance the state of digital health in Canada to an extent that would be impressive for an industry veteran with decades of experience.

Sheridan is widely recognized for her leadership in the health data exchange standards space. She is sought after by clients and colleagues alike for her expertise in the HL7 FHIR® standard, acting as both a thought leader guiding the future of FHIR® use in Canada and a technical leader supporting teams in implementing innovative digital health solutions. She has worked as a standards subject matter expert or technical leader on numerous projects, with clients including Canada Health Infoway, Women’s College Hospital and the US Food & Drug Administration. Sheridan is often asked for informal advice on standards by colleagues, and her expertise is sometimes specifically requested by clients.

Projects where Sheridan played a central role were not only successful but executed with a lot more clarity and reduced stress to those participating. Sheridan is a true leader in helping others succeed; her knowledge is a guiding light for those around her and her striving for excellence is measurable in every interaction.

While Sheridan exemplifies the criteria for the Emerging Leader of the year award, I believe it is undeniable that Sheridan Cook is in many respects already a leader in the Canadian digital health community. At this early stage of her career she is making a significant impact nationally, and I look forward to her ongoing contributions to our industry.
