HHS Appoints Nine to Health IT Advisory Panels

The Health Information Technology Standards Committee and one new member to the Health Information Technology Policy Committee allow stakeholders and the public to provide direct input to HHS on the implementation and use of health IT.

This week, U.S. Health and Human Services Secretary Sylvia Burwell appointed eight new members of the Health Information Technology Standards Committee and one new member to the Health Information Technology Policy Committee, two panels that provide the opportunity for stakeholders and the public to provide direct input to HHS on the implementation and use of health IT. Both committees are supported by the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology.

HITSC is charged with recommending standards, implementation specifications, and certification criteria for the electronic exchange and use of health information, while HITPC is charged with recommending policies for the development and adoption of a nationwide health IT infrastructure, including standards for the exchange and use of health information.

Both advisory committees were created through the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act.

New appointees are:

HITPC member: Aaron Miri, chief information officer and vice president of Government Relations, Imprivata

HITSC members:

  • Dr. Rajesh Dash, M.D., professor of Pathology, Duke University School of Medicine
  • Kay Eron, MBA, general manager, Heath IT & Medical Devices, Intel
