In addition to the new Board members listed above, HHS Secretary Mike Leavitt and Veterans Affairs Secretary James Peake will serve as federal liaisons to the board. The National Coordinator for Health Information Technology, Robert Kolodner, M.D., will continue to coordinate federal input into the public-private process.
"In the three years since AHIC was created and began submitting recommendations to me, 52 harmonized standards for health information technology have been established," Secretary Leavitt said. "I expect to recognize 60 additional harmonized standards by January 2009."
"So the concept of having the public and private sectors collaborate to
advance standards development is working,"
