Lori Hack has been appointed interim chief executive officer of the California Regional Health Information Organization (CalRHIO) by the planning committee of the year-old health-data exchange. Hack is the former executive director of the not-for-profit Health Technology Center in San Francisco. She also served as executive director of the Alta Bates Medical Group in Berkeley, Calif., and has held several hospital and health-plan leadership positions. Hack has a master's degree in business administration from the University of Southern California and a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of California at Los Angeles. "CalRHIO has made excellent progress in the past year," Hack said in a prepared statement. "We have more than 60 healthcare-related organizations and government agencies involved in our various working groups and committees, and we have raised nearly $5 million. It's been our goal from the outset to establish CalRHIO as an independent, self-sustaining organization."
