Farzad Mostashari Formally Named National Coordinator for HIT

According to ONC’s website, Secretary of HHS Kathleen Sebelius formally named Farzad Mostashari, MD, ScM as the National Coordinator for HIT.  Dr. Mostashari had been serving in an Acting capacity since Dr. David Blumenthal’s departure a couple weeks ago.  Previously, Dr. Mostashari served as Deputy to the National Coordinator.

ACR representatives have met with Dr. Mostashari in the past, including as part of the Imaging e-Ordering Coalition.  He is very knowledgeable about the technical aspects of HIT and HIE; perhaps more so than previous National Coordinators.  He was also a key ONC liaison to CMS during the Stage 1 Meaningful Use rulemakings in 2009-2010.

As of this writing, HHS.gov has not posted a media release publicizing this important decision.
