AHIC Successor, Inc. Announces Board of Directors
Date:9/23/2008

Secretary Leavitt added. "A public-private partnership, such as AHIC Successor, brings the benefits of government involvement to the table without the pitfalls of a politically controlled process picking winners and losers. These leaders and this new organization will play a vital role in improving the quality of health care through the adoption of new, interoperable technology."

The initial three signatories to the incorporation -- John Glaser, Ph.D., Vice President and Chief Information Officer, Partners HealthCare System, Inc.; Jonathan Perlin, M.D., Ph.D., Chief Medical Officer and President, Clinical Services, Hospital Corporation of America; and Dr. Tooker -- will also participate as Board members for the first year, after which they will step down without replacement.

The current AHIC, which is scheduled to complete its work by the end of 2008, advises HHS on how to accelerate the development and adoption of health information technology.

Widespread adoption of health information technology will improve the quality, safety, and efficiency of health care by enabling the exchange of relevant patient information to better manage health information and care. When used with appropriate safeguards that protect confidentiality and privacy, health IT can enable comprehensive management of medical information and its secure exchange between health care consumers, providers, and other relevant parties. Health IT enables improvements at the point of care, broader public health improvements, and more efficient and effective data collection and analysis by researchers to improve quality and affordability of care.

About AHIC Successor, Inc.

AHIC Successor, Inc. was created under a grant from the Office of the National Coordinator (ONC) of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to support the nation's efforts in developing interoperable health information technology. Through the efforts of a broad range of health IT stakeholders
