HIP-TN gets permanent CEO

Keith Cox (left), who has already had a busy career in health IT -- with McKesson, Microsoft, A.D.A.M. and others -- is the new CEO for the Health Information Partnership for Tennessee (HIP-TN). The release is here. Here's some interesting background on the relationship between HIP-TN and the Governor's office of E-Health Initiatives. Pending Cox's appointment, the HIP-TN has been run by staff of C3 Consulting, a Brentwood IT and business-process consulting firm. Here's the job description offered while Cox was being recruited. The Buffkin Group was retained for the search, originally. A key resource in all this has been Vicki Estrin.

Have you heard any TN leads/stories related to "How Internet2 Plans to Spend $62.5-Million in Stimulus Funds"?

blurb: A superfast national research network plans to hook in more hospitals, public libraries, and other "community anchors," in hopes that new types of applications—as groundbreaking as Google or Facebook—will grow there.
