The CMS has appointed Dr. Mark Roche as its first chief healthcare informatics officer, agency Administrator Seema Verma told staff Tuesday.

Roche, a physician informaticist, began the new role this week. As CHIO, he will oversee implementation of the agency’s interoperability strategy and MyHealthEData, an initiative Verma announced last year meant to give patients more control over their health information.
