IHE IT Infrastructure Planning co-chair

I finally got caught... I have been elected co-chair of the IHE IT Infrastructure - Planning Committee.

I have been 'co-chair from behind' for too long, I knew I would eventually get caught. I tried to be elected co-chair in IHE once before, but had a campaign against me... by my peers at my employer at the time (GE Healthcare)...

First test will be the face-to-face meeting for New Work Item proposals October 16-17....

YOU have submitted your new work item proposal, right? Better hurry, the deadline is just 22 days away.
