National eHealth Collaborative Launched
Date:1/8/2009

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.

In December, under the auspices of AHIC Successor, Inc., the group elected John Tooker, M.D., M.B.A., Executive Vice President and Chief Executive Officer of the American College of Physicians, to serve as Chair of the 2009 Board of Directors. Kevin Hutchison, President and CEO of Prematics, Inc., was elected Vice Chair, and Thomas Fritz, M.A., M.P.A., CEO of Inland Northwest Health Services, will serve as Treasurer. Laura Miller, M.P.A., FACHE, National eHealth Collaborative Interim Executive Director, will act as Secretary. The group also elected several committee chairs, whose role will be to drive efforts and progress in various areas specific to achieving its shared mission. (Complete Board list follows with committee chairs noted.)

"As the National eHealth Collaborative continues to guide and drive the most important transformation of healthcare in our nation's history, we are committed to working with all stakeholders to encourage the use of interoperable health IT," said Dr. Tooker, the Chair of the newly announced National eHealth Collaborative Board of Directors. "I am pleased to serve alongside some of the most respected leaders in healthcare and information technology as we work to improve the health and well-being of all Americans through the nationwide exchange of interoperable electronic health information."

Toward that end, representatives of the Collaborative's Board are scheduled to meet with President-elect Obama's transition team on Friday, January 9th, to brief them on the group's efforts and plans. The National eHealth Collaborative will also offer assistance as the new Administration follows through on President-elect Oba
