Biography at a Glance

Evon Holladay is a seasoned professional in architecting enterprise intelligence solutions and running analytics operations. She has built scalable, high-value solutions for health care, telecommunications, retail, and manufacturing.

Currently she serves as the Vice President Enterprise Intelligence for Catholic Health Initiatives. She is leading CHI’s Population Health Analytics and Data strategy. This includes defining the overall population health analytics and data strategy through building for CHI and extending as a service to our affiliated partners.

In support of Population Health Analytics and Data strategy, she leads CHI’s Information Management Governance, charged with managing CHI’s information as an asset. This includes managing operations for the CHI analytics portfolio, enterprise data warehouse, data governance and the enterprise information architecture.

She has a passion for designing and operating solutions that provide measurable value. Her specific areas of interest are enterprise information integration, data quality management, and working with business partners to build information solutions that improve the quality of care delivered.

Holladay was selected for the 2013 CHI Leadership Scholarship, a six-month sabbatical awarded to a senior CHI executive for advanced study, research, writing or community service.

She spent the fall of 2013 academic semester as a visiting scholar at the Workshop in Political Theory and Policy Analysis at Indiana University in Bloomington.

In her studies with the policy workshop, Holladay researched the emergence of health care as a commons. This work will help inform and guide the leadership of Catholic health care ministries about future governance models. Her focus on the governance of health care as a vital “common-pool resource,” like water systems, timber and coal, is grounded in the work of former Indiana University scholar Elinor Ostrom, who was awarded the 2009 Nobel Prize in economics for her research in this area.

Holladay explored how a more-collaborative form of governance is helping bridge the gap between the U.S. health care system’s fragmented fee-for-service structure and the rapidly evolving focus on accountable care and population-health management.

She holds a Bachelors in Science from Kansas State University and an MBA from the University of Utah. She is an analytics advisory board member for DU’s Business Information and Analytics department. She has guest lectured and works with her business peers to provide timely capstone project opportunities.
