Mark McClellan, M.D., Ph.D., has been named chair of the Commission of the Center for Aging Services Technologies (CAST), an international coalition dedicated to the development, evaluation, and adoption of emerging technologies that can transform the aging experience.

In his role, McClellan will help to drive research and education around key policy issues to advance aging services technologies, and support efforts that educate healthcare professionals on how health IT can benefit older adults and their caregivers. A former commissioner of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and administrator of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, McClellan is now director of the Engelberg Center for Health Care Reform and Leonard D. Schaeffer Chair of Health Policy Studies at the Brookings Institution.

Comprised of more than 400 technology companies, aging-services organizations, businesses, research universities, and government representatives, CAST is supported by the American Association of Homes and Services for the Aging, a member organization centered on advancing a new and better system of long-term care and services for America’s seniors.

The Health IT Summits gather 250+ healthcare leaders in cities across the U.S. to present important new insights, collaborate on ideas, and to have a little fun - Find a Summit Near You!
