Jenna Mikrut selected as Director of Clinical Education  

Jenna Mikrut, BSN, RN, CRC, has been named Director of Clinical Education. She formerly directed CHC/SEK’s Population Health program.  

Jenna’s new role will include providing direction and oversite to the Residency Coordinator for the Rural Family Medicine Residency and the NYU Langone/Kansas Advanced Education in Pediatric Dentistry Residency. She also oversees the Clinical Student Coordinator, ensuring clinical education components are met for multiple academic and healthcare training programs. Additionally, she provides direction to the provider and clinical onboarding team and is responsible for various other clinical training programs for CHC/SEK employees.

“I have a passion for education and impacting patient care,” Jenna says. “This will allow me to apply everything I have learned in the last 15 years and pass it along to others.” 

Jenna started working at CHC/SEK in 2009, moving from hospital nursing to becoming a clinic nurse for a family practice physician at CHC/SEK. Approximately three years after joining the organization, she became a Nursing Coordinator of Family Practice and Women’s Health, where she served as the team lead, and managed nursing schedules.   

In 2014, CHC/SEK needed someone to help create clinical workflows in its new electronic health records (EHR). Jenna became an EHR Specialist and completed the eClinicalWorks Train the Trainer course in Boston.  As a certified trainer, she played a key role in the implementation, customization, and optimization of the system and was the provider trainer and provided end-user support to all staff. 

In 2016, she became the Clinical Coordinator, in which she provided supervision to nursing and clinical support staff and oversaw nursing functions.  

In 2018, when CHC/SEK signed an agreement to participate in an Accountable Care Organization (ACO), she became the Director of Practice Transformation. She was responsible for transforming the healthcare delivery system to align with patient-centered, value-based initiatives. Her role also included supervision of health information, population health, quality, and EHR teams. 

As the population health team grew, Jenna’s role shifted exclusively to population health. She led value-based agreements and payer incentive programs, creating and implementing integrated workflows for initiatives like hospital follow-ups and annual wellness visits. These efforts increased care quality and health outcomes while reducing overall healthcare costs. 

In 2019, she completed training as a Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner (SANE) and led the SANE program. This year, Jenna became a Certified Risk Adjustment Coder (CRC) to enhance clinical documentation and ensure accurate diagnosis code assignment, which helps insurance companies estimate the cost to treat a patient each year, based on the patient’s specific health needs. 

“You can never have too much education and I am always looking for opportunities to learn all I can!” Jenna says.  “I’m honored to have been selected for this new role.”
