This includes responsibility for Joint Commission compliance and survey preparation for large community based residential behavioral health organizations over a period of 29 years including Skyland Trail and Hillside – both located in Atlanta, Georgia.

Along with her expertise in Joint Commission accreditation, Ms. Sellers specializes in health information technology and electronic health records in the behavioral healthcare setting. She led the implementation of an electronic health record in the two behavioral health organizations where she served as Director of Operations and Vice President for Information Management & Performance Improvement.

Client feedback: “We were going for TJC accreditation and implementing a new EHR at the same time. Laura’s expertise in both of those areas was instrumental to our success. We achieved both goals in the same year and couldn’t have done it without her.”
