HealthStream announced it has added physician C. Martin Harris, chief information officer and chairman of the information technology division of the Cleveland Clinic and current chairman of the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society, to its board of directors.
The Nashville-based company, which provides healthcare workforce training and development technology, also added former Federal Communications Commissioner Deborah Taylor Tate to the board.
Harris, 53, is also executive director of eClevelandClinic, an array of Internet-based clinical programs for physicians and patients. A spokeswoman for the system said Cleveland Clinic Florida, a 150-bed hospital in Weston, Fla., is the only part of the Cleveland Clinic that is a HealthStream client.
Tate was an FCC commissioner from 2006-2009 and previously was chairman of the Tennessee Regulatory Authority and executive director of the state's Health Facilities Commission (the certificate-of-need body since renamed the Health Services and Development Agency).
HealthStream directors are paid an annual retainer of $2,000, plus $1,000 for each meeting and additional sums for heading committees and participating in committee hearings, according to the company's most recent proxy statement. In 2010, the company expected to issue each director 15,000 stock options that vest annually in three increments.
