Mostashari Announces Departure as Speculation Begins for a Replacement
With the recent announcement that ONC head Farzad Mostashari would step down, questions immediately began to arise as to the selection of his replacement.
One name that appears to warrant consideration is Principal Deputy National Coordinator David Muntz, who currently oversees four offices within ONC.
Additional names at ONC who are thought to be considered as possible replacements include:
- Judy Murphy, currently the deputy national coordinator for programs and policy at ONC.
- Doug Fridsma, currently the chief science officer at ONC.
- Jacob Reider, currently ONC’s Chief Medical Officer
David Muntz, ONC’s Principal Deputy National Coordinator will be speaking at our 2013 Accountable Care & Health IT Strategies Summit, September 10th-12th 2013 in San Francisco, CA.
