HHS CTO to depart from agency in June

HHS Chief Technology Officer Bruce Greenstein is resigning from his post after nearly one year on the job, FedScoop reports.

Mr. Greenstein has taken a position at LHC Group, a home health services company based in Lafayette, La., as chief innovation and technology officer, beginning in June.

"Bruce is internationally recognized as a respected leader and innovator in the healthcare industry — a combination which makes him a perfect addition to our management team today as LHC Group continues leading the way in a growth industry," Keith Myers, LHC Group's chairman and CEO, said in a statement, according to FedScoop. "He will lead our enhanced emphasis on innovation and technology to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of healthcare services."

Before joining HHS in June 2017 as the fourth person to take the top data and technology role since it was introduced in 2009, he spent time in the private sector working at a health technology startup and served in Louisiana's state government.

Mr. Greenstein's time at HHS was marked with bringing private sector innovators to the agency. His office held a code-a-thon in December to address the opioid crisis, as well as the first-ever "startup day," to help smaller companies view HHS as a customer and partner.

It is unclear who, if anyone, HHS will appoint as Mr. Greenstein's replacement.
