JANUARY 19, 2018
Karen DeSalvo has experience working in the public sector, but she’s hardly what you’d call a government bureaucrat. DeSalvo, who is trained as a physician, served as the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology from 2014 to 2016 under President Barack Obama. During some of the time she headed the ONC, as the office is known, DeSalvo was also Assistant U.S. Secretary for Health , a position within the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).
