Dr. C. Martin Harris, CIO Cleveland Clinic Foundation
Dr. C. Martin Harris, Cleveland Clinic's longtime CIO, has played high profile leadership roles in many government and health industry groups for about a decade. He's currently a member of the HIT Standards Committee, that's advising President Obama's National Coordinator for Health IT on HITECH Act and other standards related issues. However, Harris also played a leading role during President George W. Bush administration's mission for "most Americans" to have an electronic health record by 2014. Harris was the only health CIO named to two Bush councils, including Commission On Care For America's Returning Wounded Warriors and the Commission on Systemic Interoperability, which made recommendations to Congress about priorities for implementing a nationwide electronic health information exchange network.
