Health and Human Services has indicated that the acting National Coordinator for Health IT will be announced Sept. 22. David Brailer, MD, who previously held the spot, made the announcement and indicated that the acting coordinator is an individual that already holds a government position, and because the job requires political and negotiation skills, it was difficult to fill. The new appointment is only expected to last two years when the Bush Administration comes to a close.
