Dr. Kate Goodrich
Chief medical officer,
Goodrich works closely with the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology Dr. Donald Rucker in advancing the administration’s agenda on interoperability and data-blocking. She’s championed the CMS’ proposed regulation before Congress and at health IT conferences. Like Rucker, she believes application programming interfaces—APIs—will transform the industry. As director of clinical standards and quality, Goodrich is also a key figure in the agency’s push to align quality measures. She’s also at the forefront of potential changes and increased transparency surround quality measures at nursing homes.
