Mark Leavitt, M.D., Ph.D., will retire as chair of CCHIT in March.
The Board of Trustees has initiated a national search for a successor. Said H. Stephen Lieber, chair of the Board of Trustees, “The search will be open and transparent so we maintain the confidence of our many constituents. CCHIT trustee Frank Trembulak, executive vice president and COO of Geisinger Health System, will chair the search committee, and a firm has been retained to conduct the search. More information with duties and qualifications will be available on CCHIT’s Web site soon.”
Leavitt was recently interviewed by HCI.
