CaseNet named Carl Ascenzo, a senior vice president and chief information officer of Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Massachusetts, as its first independent board member. The Waltham, Mass.-based software developer expanded its board to five with Ascenzo's appointment, said CaseNet spokesman Tony Larson. Ascenzo joins two CaseNet officials and two representatives from Sigma Partners, a high-tech venture capital fund, on the board, Larson said. Sigma Partners backed CaseNet in 2005. Ascenzo also serves on the boards of the Massachusetts Health Data Consortium and the Massachusetts e-Health Collaborative. -- By Melanie Evans / HITS staff writer
