National eHealth Collaborative is now accepting nominations for leaders in the health and healthcare fields to serve on the NeHC Board of Directors.

National eHealth Collaborative is a public-private partnership developed through an open, multi-year, multi-stakeholder process and operates under a cooperative agreement with the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC). As NeHC turns the corner into its second year, NeHC leaders are looking to their many stakeholders for recommendations on who should be asked to fill vacancies on the NeHC Board of Directors.

“By encouraging the broad adoption and use of health information technologies and electronic health information exchange, we help to create a true patient-centered health system. Public and private sector efforts to expand funding and develop policies and standards are having a significant impact in driving this momentum, with much more to follow in the coming months and years. However, achieving the ultimate objective – measurably improving individual and population health by enabling the seamless and secure nationwide exchange of electronic health information – will also require unprecedented engagement and collaboration among all the stakeholders of our healthcare system, and NeHC plans to help lead that engagement in 2010,” said NeHC Board Chair Dr. John Tooker, Executive Vice President and Chief Executive Officer, American College of Physicians.

“In 2010, NeHC will continue to be deeply engaged in driving broader efforts to educate, provide practical guidance, and encourage collaboration and consensus among stakeholders -- building on the success we have had through our Stakeholder Forums and working groups in 2009. NeHC will also be actively engaged with ONC to take on responsibilities to support the growth of the Nationwide Health Information Network. Our upcoming projects require that new Board members be skilled at handling the challenge of building on a vision and generating unified action and support within a diverse, member-driven organization, and we look forward to those people being nominated by our stakeholders,” said NeHC Nominations Committee Chair Janet Corrigan, President and CEO of the National Quality Forum.

Stakeholders may self-nominate or recommend a colleague by completing the online form. Nominations for NeHC’s Board of Directors will be accepted through December 25, 2009. A provisional slate of nominations will be posted on the NeHC website for 10 days of public comment in early January 2010 and elections by the membership will be held in late January. For additional information, please visit or contact Meryt McGindley, NeHC Acting Communications and Membership Director, at or (202) 624-3267.
