Statement from CHIME President and CEO Russell P. Branzell, FCHIME, CHCIO on Administrator Marilyn Tavenner’s Departure from CMS
“CHIME appreciates Administrator Tavenner’s service and her many years of leadership within the healthcare industry. She provided a steady hand during turbulent times in Washington, as she oversaw the rollout of the Affordable Care Act and the many provisions of the HITECH Act.
“This is a pivotal time in the nation’s transformation towards increased quality, better health and lower cost. We call on the Administration and Congress to confirm a replacement quickly, so that the CMS has the leadership it needs to address the many ongoing challenges with Meaningful Use, accountable care and continue our march towards the triple aim.”
