We have an insatiable thirst for two things – excellence and exceptional talent that can help us pursue it. So we’re beyond excited to announce that Joe Warbington (yeh, the Joe!) is joining the V-team as Vizlib’s new Senior Director of Industry Solutions. Known within the Qlik universe as a healthcare analytics champion and amongst friends as a Capoeira nut (read more to understand…), Joe will drive our efforts of creating impactful vertical-focused content and solutions using the unbeatable combination of Qlik + Vizlib.
There’s nothing customers and partners love more than expert-level problem-solvers. Read our brief interview with Joe to get to know him better!
Life before Vizlib: Prior to Vizlib, I was the Industry Solutions Director for Healthcare at Qlik. I helped set the direction for healthcare analytics and worked with many health systems, consulting partners, and technology partners. Building communities was my favorite part of the role there, as seeing and hearing what healthcare organizations were doing with data was very rewarding. I also was a champion for the Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) team – now Qlik.org – working with nonprofits and NGOs around the globe to help deepen their impact using data. Prior to Qlik, I worked on the analytics team at Epic – one of the largest healthcare software companies in the world. I still live in Madison Wisconsin after all of these years at Epic and Qlik, as it continues to be a hub for innovation in healthcare and technology.
Mission at Vizlib: As the Senior Director of Industry Solutions at Vizlib, I’ll be applying our leading technology to various markets and creating content and analytics in the language of the customers. Initially, this will be with healthcare and few other verticals. I’m excited to take my passions of healthcare and designing analytical applications to new levels at Vizlib, and hope to help many organizations bring light to their data to improve on their missions.
Favourite chart: Easy – the Sankey Diagram! It shows how things progress through areas highlighting bottlenecks or the most common options. I’ve used it to help healthcare systems understand areas to improve, like in Emergency Department processes to discover what was causing delays in treatment. With complicated processes, sankeys have a great way of shining light on how things happen.
Special skills: Outside of healthcare and data analytics, I train and teach the Brazilian martial art of capoeira. It’s a great way to workout without feeling like you’re working out because you spend time with friends, kicking them and learning new moves.
