Anne Davidson Barr's expertise is in leading the utilization of technology to achieve strategic business and operational goals. She joined the National Kidney Foundation Board in 2019 and has served on the Northern California NKF Board since 2013, including three years as Board Chair. Recently, as Chief Information Officer for Sutter Health Bay Area and earlier as Regional Information Officer for Kaiser Permanente in Northern and Southern California, Barr oversaw the transition to Electronic Health Records where she also had the opportunity to work with Kidney Transplant Centers. Currently, Barr consults on healthcare technology and Digital transformation.
As an NKF Board Member, Anne has recruited several Corporate Chairs to sponsor the Kidney walks over the years. In Northern California, she supported the implementation of governance changes, leadership changes while engaging Board Members actively in strategy and planning sessions. Her engagement with NKF began as part of her passion for the Kidney Transplant Centers she supported and became more personal when a close friend became a kidney donor.
