DataFile Technologies Announces Chris Berland as New CFO

(Kansas City, Mo. – May 5th, 2017): DataFile Technologies, a leader in health information management solutions, today announced Chris Berland has joined the company as Chief Financial Officer. The new post was added to the leadership team to provide a dedicated focus on financial strategy, planning, processes and systems.  Berland’s appointment to the CFO post comes as the company continues to expand its footprint in a rapidly growing industry.

Berland’s background in health IT with Allscripts, an EHR/practice management platform, along with prior experience working in growth stage companies, makes him an ideal fit for the leadership team at DataFile. The combination of Berland’s experience and his entrepreneurial approach to financial management enables him to pursue DataFile’s aggressive growth goals while balancing day-to-day financial leadership responsibilities.

Prior to his new role with DataFile, Berland worked as Chief Financial Officer for OpenMobile, a Boston-based early-stage technology company that developed software to support Android application developers in expanding their revenue opportunities within the mobile market. A graduate of Kansas State University and native of Manhattan, Kan., Berland saw DataFile not only as a unique opportunity within the health IT industry but also a chance to return to the Midwest.

“With my Midwest mentality, this opportunity was very appealing to me. I’m excited to join a company that’s been built on integrity and hard work,” said Berland. “Janine is an exceptional CEO who has compiled a management team with a proven track record and has made it a mission to create a fun and entrepreneurial environment that cultivates winning.  I believe my background and financial acumen will supplement the existing team’s skills, and together we will propel the company to the next level of growth.”

CEO Janine Akers shares in the enthusiasm. “It’s an exciting time for our company,” Akers commented. “Not only are we positioned for exciting growth in health IT, but we continue to attract top talent to our team, from the executive to implementation levels. With the addition of Chris and the depth of knowledge he brings to our team, we look forward to continuing our path of growth.”

    To whom it may concern, 10-May-17

    I would like to say thank you so much for all of your help. I know I had been a pain in the bottom end. I’m sorry if I was a problem with your employees, I do apologies from the bottom of my heart. I did not mean to be rude if I was. I have requested many times for files that I needed really fast. I’m applying for 2 different medical disabilities that is why I needed my records so fast as well as so many copies.
    I wish I could remember all of your employee’s names and I tried to but with all what I’m going through my mind is not with me. I want to “THANK EACH AND EVERYONE OF YOU FOR ALL THE HELP AND ALL THE KINDNESS YOU HAD GIVEN ME WITH THE SERVICES I NEEDED”. You were all so professional with me. You all do an awesome job. I had asked for records from as far back as you could go up to date. There were so many records it surprised me how many you had to get for me. You all did a lot of research, I’m sure it was a pain on your end as well.
    I just realized I’m going to try my hardest to keep copies of each visit when I go to any of my health appointment that will help so that I don’t have to do this again. I believe it was about 10 years of files. Wooo. What a job.
    You have the best employee’s and know how to handle people like me. I hope I’m not really that bad but again “THANK YOU FOR ALL YOUR HELP”

    Thank you and have a wonderful day
