David Blumenthal, MD, MPP as National Coordinatior for Health IT
According to the Associated Press, the HHS announced that David Blumenthal, MD, MPP, will serve as national coordinator for health information technology (health IT). He has done a considerable amount of research on health IT issues so I'm eager to see how he will direct the future of health IT in this country. Congratulations to Dr. Blumenthal! Health IT is a growing industry and there are many opportunities for clinicians in this space.
