Nelson Delgado, Systems Analyst
Nelson Delgado joined Yale New Haven Hospital in 2009 as a temporary employee in the IT Department. After a few months, the opportunity arose to become part of a new department within IT, the Audio Visual Department, and Nelson was hired in 2010 as Systems Analyst. The AV crew oversees video conferences, conference rooms, and new AV installations for the entire Yale New Haven Health System.
On a daily basis, Nelson manages video conference calls both within the system and externally. He also collaborates with Classroom Technology and Event Services at Yale School of Medicine to exchange ideas and keep up with the changing times. One of his main roles includes providing support to the Smilow Cancer Hospital Tumor Boards. He ensures that all the technology in the room is working ahead of the Tumor Board meetings. He is also responsible for a large number of meetings including Yale Cancer Center Grand Rounds, Schwartz Rounds, PSQC, HSC Safety Huddle, and Medical and Anesthesiology Grand Rounds. Even with that busy schedule, he also works on in-house video projects and their production.
"This organization is geared for change in our community and I feel lucky to be a part of the team," said Nelson. "I handle a variety of projects, and get to interact with a lot of different departments and areas."Among the highlighted productions Nelson has been involved with are the Yale- New Haven Health System's Institute for Excellence, producing live webinars for their Essential Components of Leadership Development program. These have had enormous success within the Y-NHH system. He also supports Bridgeport Hospital and Greenwich Hospital on a daily basis in coordinating videoconferences and Livestream events.
Nelson was recently recognized along with his teammates as Employee of the Month by their division, Finance and Corporate Services."There isn't a meeting or event at Smilow Cancer Hospital that doesn't rely on Nelson's expertise to run smoothly. The faculty and staff of Yale Cancer Center and Smilow Cancer Hospital depend on Nelson for all of our needs at Grand Rounds, faculty meetings, patient events, CME symposiums, and other events and he always ensures everything is managed well for us. He is uniquely committed to his work, and always reliable.
We appreciate all of his help on a daily basis," said Thomas Lynch, MD, Director of Yale Cancer Center and Physician-in-Chief of Smilow Cancer Hospital.
