WASHINGTON, March 13, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- DirectTrust today announced that a call for nominations for new Directors has been sent to the Membership by its Board of Directors. DirectTrust is a non-profit health care industry alliance created to support secure, identity-verified electronic exchanges of personal health information (PHI) between provider organizations, and between provider and patients, for the purpose of improved coordination of care.
"The organization is also seeking a new CEO to lead through the next era following the departure of current President and CEO David C. Kibbe, MD, MBA, at year-end so this is a pivotal time for the organization. We are seeking thought leaders who can translate the breadth of DirectTrust’s value proposition among the organization’s many constituencies,” stated DirectTrust Board Chair Paul Uhrig, Chief Administrative, Legal & Privacy Officer for Surescripts.
DirectTrust’s non-paid Directors support the work of DirectTrust with mission-based leadership and strategic governance. DirectTrust’s Board of Directors is relatively small and unusually active, working with the CEO on policy, strategy, industry relationships, technological advances, and the end-user experience, especially for consumers, their families, and their health care providers. Nominees for a three-year term commencing June 2018 must be and remain associated with members in good standing of DirectTrust. They are sought from various industry groups representative of DirectTrust’s diverse membership, including:
- providers of direct exchange services
- users of direct exchange services
- healthcare providers or provider organizations
- providers of services to healthcare providers
- governmental entities
- educational or scientific research organizations interested in the nationwide health
- information network
- patient or consumer advocates
