Join OAP and The Greater Philadelphia Chamber of Commerce at our May 6th Convening and meet speaker LeRoy E. Jones!
LeRoy E. Jones is Chief Executive Officer of GSI Health, LLC, a healthcare technology and solution provider, which he founded and developed into a national leader in accountable care coordination, health information exchange, system integration, and interoperability. Mr. Jones is a recognized expert in healthcare information exchange, and health IT more broadly, performing strategy development, business analysis, technical architecture and solution design for GSI Health clientele. His company, GSI Health, is on the forefront of population health management solutions, and has helped pioneer working models for effective collaboration in community-based care delivery. He is a frequent public speaker and is regularly called upon to lead and contribute toward significant industry initiatives.
These opportunities have included: serving on workgroups and committees for the federal Health IT Standards Committee (HITSC), piloting and developing recommendations on the national Longitudinal Care Coordination (LCC) effort that led to the care plan specifications in HL7’s CCDA R2 standard, playing a leading role in the development of transport standards for secure communication of patient data (the “Direct” protocols), as well as leading the nation’s effort to harmonize healthcare data standards as the Program Manager for the Healthcare Information Technology Standards Panel (HITSP). He has assisted several States in the development of architectures and operational models for healthcare information exchange.
Mr. Jones also served as Senior Advisor to Dr. David J. Brailer, the original National Coordinator for Health Information Technology and Presidential appointee. In that capacity, Mr. Jones was responsible for managing the strategic technical directions for the national healthcare agenda. He was one of the inaugural members of the ONC (Office of the National Coordinator for Health information Technology) team that launched the HIT renaissance currently experienced by the industry.
Mr. Jones previously also led the Federal Health Architecture (FHA) initiative, an e-Government line of business responsible for unifying IT architecture across the Federal government within the health line of business, and the Consolidated Health Informatics (CHI) initiative, a cross-government consensus group that selects standards for various healthcare domains.
