VA losing CIO, CTO (US)

The US Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) has two critical vacancies, just announced: CIO Roger Baker and CTO Peter Levin are both leaving the agency after three years. Their resignations come in the midst of major initiatives: Levin’s ‘Blue Button’ PHR (personal health record), mobile telehealth technologies for suicide prevention and oncology; Baker’s adoption of mobile devices and streamlined claims processes. The VA is also coping with the thousands of Iraq and Afghanistan veterans flooding into the system requiring high levels of care, as well as aging  veterans of the Korean, Vietnam and Gulf (I) Wars. No word in this article on what will come next from either Baker or Levin, or the VA, which is unusual. Healthcare IT News
