WASHINGTON, March 23 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The independent, non-profit, multi-stakeholder eHealth Initiative applauds the appointment of David Blumenthal, MD, MPP, as the new National Coordinator for Health Information Technology within the Department of Health and Human Services. One of the key responsibilities of the National Coordinator will be to lead the implementation of a nationwide, interoperable, privacy-protected health information technology infrastructure as called for in the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, which President Obama signed into law last month, providing a net investment of more than $19 billion in health IT.

Dr. Blumenthal previously served as a physician, director and founder of the Institute for Health Policy at Massachusetts General Hospital of the Partners HealthCare System, and as the Samuel O. Thier Professor of Medicine and Professor of Health Care Policy at Harvard Medical School.

"We're delighted with the appointment of Dr. Blumenthal to this important position," said Janet M. Marchibroda, Chief Executive Officer of the eHealth Initiative. "Dr. Blumenthal is uniquely suited for this role given his experience as a health care policy expert, a primary care physician, and an organizational leader, and his leadership will be critical to building a bridge between our nation's health care reform goals and the important foundation that the health IT provisions of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act will provide."
