Date:1/8/2009

VIENNA, Va., Jan. 8 /PRNewswire/ -- The National eHealth Collaborative, formerly AHIC Successor, Inc., today announced the results of its organizational leadership elections in which Kevin Hutchinson, President and CEO of Prematics, Inc., was elected to serve as Vice Chair of the organization's 2009 Board of Directors. The Collaborative builds on the accomplishments of the American Health Information Community (AHIC), a federal advisory committee established in 2005, and AHIC Successor, Inc., founded in 2008 to transition AHIC's accomplishments into a new non-profit membership organization, now known as the National eHealth Collaborative.

"The Collaborative represents a shared commitment among virtually all necessary stakeholders in both private and public sectors needed to guide our country to achieving nationwide health IT interoperability," said Hutchinson. "I am honored to have the opportunity to serve alongside some of the most distinguished leaders in both health care and information technology as we work to improve the quality of our nation's health care system."

A recognized expert and leader in development and deployment of healthcare information technology, Mr. Hutchinson previously served at the request of U.S. Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Michael Leavitt as a Commissioner of the original AHIC. He is also currently a member of the board of directors for the eHealth Initiative (eHI) and the American Academy of Family Physician's (AAFP) TransforMED company.

The National eHealth Collaborative brings together stakeholders in nearly every area of health to accelerate development of the health IT systems, infrastructure, standards, protections, participation, and education needed to create a secure, interoperable, nationwide electronic health information system. It provides a needed and credible forum for stakeholders to transparently vet and prioritize national advancement efforts and leverages the value, resources and best practices offered by both the public and private sectors. The Collaborative works in close partnership with the Health Information Technology Standards Panel (HITSP), the Certification Commission for Health Information Technology (CCHIT), and the Nationwide Health Information Network (NHIN), as well as other health and IT member organizations.

A complete list of Collaborative board members and committee chairs is available at www.nationalehealth.org.
