The Mount Laurel, N.J.-based not-for-profit organization announced the launch of its Case Management Body of Knowledge in a news release.
Bechtel, the vice president of the National Partnership for Women and Families, is one of the most active members of the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology's Policy Committee. She serves on seven of the committee's special-focus groups, including the privacy and security tiger team and the quality-measures and meaningful-use work groups.
"The CMBOK Editorial Advisory Board represents the diverse healthcare community, with membership across the healthcare continuum," commission CEO Patrice Sminkey said in a news release. The advisers will help the commission "stay in front of the educational needs" of case managers, Sminkey said.
Before joining the National Partnership for Women and Families, a Washington-based legal advocacy group, Bechtel served as vice president of the eHealth Initiative, a health IT policy consortium. Her age was unavailable at deadline.
