Christine Sasser-Perry, RN, Joins Tea Leaves Health

Posted March 14, 2016

Tea Leaves Health, the leader in strategic growth technology for healthcare, announced today the hire of Christine Sasser-Perry, RN, CN IV, formerly of Duke Health, to consult on liaison goals.

Sasser-Perry will serve as a Lead Client Strategist of Physicianology for Tea Leaves and will play a consultative role assisting clients with their planning, strategy, application usage and results around their physician engagement efforts.

“While making the decision to leave Duke was difficult, I felt as though it was time to explore a new challenge,” explained Sasser-Perry. “Tea Leaves offered me the opportunity to equip physician liaisons and outreach teams with the technology they need to develop new physician alignment strategies and I couldn’t pass on the chance to help improve physician relations programs for not just one, but a variety of different organizations.”

Sasser-Perry comes to Tea Leaves with extensive experience in managing an independent team of nurses who build and maintain relationships with referring providers. During her more than 20 years with Duke University Health System, she served as a Neurosciences ICU nurse and an Emergency Department nurse, specializing in critical care and emergency medicine. She then worked as nurse educator before becoming Duke’s first physician liaison and eventually the manager of the physician liaison program.

“Physician liaisons need to be empowered with data in order to successfully interact with physicians and their organization’s leadership, so they look to us for guidance and results. Chris will help guide them strategically,” stated Lori Brenner, Vice President of Physicianology for Tea Leaves. “We feel honored to have Chris on our team and cannot wait for her to get started. We know she’ll make a tremendous impact on our organization and client partners.”
