VA appoints physician to lead integration for its EHR project

The Veterans Affairs Department appointed Paul Tibbits, MD, to a key leadership post charged with overseeing its EHR modernization project, shortly after Cerner unveiled its team of 24 technology businesses tasked with supporting the project on Oct. 3.

Dr. Tibbits, a veteran IT specialist at the VA, will head up the agency's Office of Information and Technology as the executive director of EHR modernization integration, according to the Politico Morning eHealth newsletter and an update on his LinkedIn page. He will report to the incoming CIO James Gfrerer, and work with John Windom, EHR project leader, to design and implement the system.

Dr. Tibbits boasts a 26-year career in the military and has held several senior IT positions at the VA since 2006. Most recently, he served as the program executive officer of financial management business transformation.
