Antoniotti joins SIU School of Medicine

February 3, 2015

Nina Antoniotti, Ph.D., RN, MBA, has joined Southern Illinois University School of Medicine as Executive Director for Telehealth and Clinical Outreach. In this newly-created position, Antoniotti will work to implement new methods of patient engagement, including virtual health care, and include a more clinical focus to SIU School of Medicine’s telehealth network.

Telehealth is the use of electronic communications to support clinical health care and education over distances. SIU School of Medicine’s telehealth network currently comprises 45 educational programs at 79 sites in 41 Illinois communities; three clinical programs at eight sites in three communities. Glenn Groesch will remain director of the SIU Telehealth Networks and Programs.

“We are indeed fortunate to have recruited a recognized professional to take our clinical practice into the virtual domain,” said Dr. Jerry Kruse, Executive Associate Dean of SIU School of Medicine and CEO of SIU HealthCare.
Antoniotti is an international leader in telehealth business and virtual clinical care. She most recently was director of Telehealth Business at Marshfield Clinic in Marshfield Wis. (1997-2014). She spent five years at Riverside Medical Center, first as director of emergency services and then director of outpatient services (1992-97). She has made more than 1,500 presentations at local, state, national and international venues on all aspects of telemedicine.

Antoniotti earned her doctorate in organizational systems from Saybrook Research Institute in San Francisco (2002). She earned an MBA from Stritch University in Milwaukee, Wis. (1992), and her bachelor’s at St. Joseph’s College in Windham, Maine (1988). Antoniotti also is a registered nurse with experience in emergency services. She is a member of numerous associations, including the American Telemedicine Association and Rural Health Association.
