Subject: [ihc] Commission on Systemic Interoperability Story Version # 2


Bush, Frist Name Health IT Commission Members

October 05, 2004

President Bush and Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist (R-Tenn.) on Friday named 
the initial members of the Commission on Systemic Interoperability, which will 
recommend standards for establishing a universal health records system, 
Government Computer News reports. 

According to the White House, Bush will appoint as chair Scott Wallace, 
president and CEO of the National Alliance for Health Information Technology. 
He also will appoint Dr. C. Martin Harris, CIO of the Cleveland Clinic 
Foundation and chair of the National Health Information Infrastructure Task 
Force of the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society, and Dr. 
William Stead, associate vice chancellor for health affairs and director of the 
informatics program center at Vanderbilt University Medical Center. Frist named 
to the commission Ivan Seidenberg, chair and CEO of Verizon Communications, and 
Vicky Gregg, CEO of BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee.

The group, which will eventually have 11 members, must recommend standards by 
November 2005. The speaker of the House, the Senate minority leader and the 
House minority leader will name the commission's remaining members (Mosquera, 
Government Computer News, 10/4). The new Medicare Modernization Act established 
the commission, which is responsible for working with the public and private 
health sectors to develop a strategy and timeline for implementing health care 
IT standards (Frist press release, 10/1).
