Speaker Highlight

Janet Marchibroda serves as the Director of the Health Innovation Initiative and the Executive Director of the CEO Council on Health and Innovation at the Bipartisan Policy Center (BPC), following two years serving as the Chair of BPC’s Health Information Technology (IT) Initiative. The BPC initiative conducts research and collaborates with experts and stakeholders across every sector of health care to develop recommendations that promote innovation and the use of IT to support improvements in the cost, quality, and patient experience of care.

Marchibroda also serves as board member and the initial executive director for Doctors Helping Doctors Transform Health Care, a non-profit, collaborative, social media effort—led primarily by doctors for doctors—to support the transformation of health care, initially through health IT, given the foundational role it plays in improving the quality, safety and efficiency of care.

Marchibroda previously led stakeholder engagement activities for the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology at the Department of Health and Human Services. She also served as the Chief Health Care Officer for IBM.

Marchibroda served as the founding Chief Executive Officer for eHealth Initiative (eHI), an independent, non-profit multi-stakeholder organization whose mission is to improve the quality, safety and efficiency of health care through information and IT. While at eHI, she developed consensus among leaders across every sector of health care on principles, policies and strategies for leveraging IT to drive improvements in health and health care and successfully advocated for significant federal leadership and financial support for the use of health IT to drive positive health system change, which culminated with passage of HITECH and signed into law in February 2009.

While at eHI, Marchibroda served as the initial Executive Director of Connecting for Health, a public-private sector initiative designed to catalyze national actions to drive electronic connectivity and an interconnected, electronic health information infrastructure; under a grant from the Markle Foundation with additional support from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.
