Ciccocioppo will serve a two-year term and Lewis one year. They round out the board, which has 15 voting members.

"Martin and Kelly have both been long-standing stakeholders and actively engaged in advancing Pennsylvania's health care transformation," said Alix Goss, PA Health IT Coordinator. "Their role as ex-officio, non-voting members of the board is to voice their opinions and influence the direction the Board on behalf of the stakeholder community that elected them."

After eight years in public office, Lewis was president of the trade group for the technology industry. Currently, he is president & CEO of AlliedHIE Company, a certified Health Information Service Provider and Direct email provider.
