The EHR Association released its new roster of executive committee members, who began their terms July 1.

The EHR Association, a partner of the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society, is a trade organization comprised of representatives from 34 EHR vendors. The executive committee establishes the association's guiding principles and develops strategic plans related to its core objectives, such as accelerating adoption of health IT and advancing interoperability.

The EHR Association's executive committee also elected Barbara Hobbs, senior government affairs manager at Meditech, and Courtney Tesvich, RN, vice president of regulatory at Nextech, as members. They join four existing executive committee members, including:
