The Healthcare Services Platform Consortium has received commitment from Salt Lake City-based Intermountain Healthcare, and LSU Health Care Services Division, a Baton Rouge-based academic healthcare organization.
HSPC also appointed Stanley M. Huff, M.D., chief medical informatics officer at Intermountain Healthcare, as chairman of the board of directors, and Oscar Diaz, former vice president and general manager of Harris Healthcare Solutions, as CEO.
