RHIO appoints interim leader as executive director

Rochester Business Journal
February 16, 2016

The Rochester Regional Health Information Organization has made interim executive director Jill Eisenstein’s appointment to the post permanent, RHIO officials said Tuesday.

Eisenstein had served as interim executive director since October when the RHIO board kicked off a national search for a candidate to replace Ted Kremer, who left to join family in Connecticut.   

“After speaking with health information executives across the country and the region, and thoroughly evaluating a number of candidates, it became evident that Jill was the most qualified person,” RHIO chairman Bryan Heatherington said.

Eisenstein had served as the RHIO’s associate director since 2006. Her previous experience includes stints with the University of Rochester, Compeer Inc. and Jordan Health.

The Rochester RHIO links physicians and hospitals in 13 Rochester-area, Finger Lakes and Southern Tier counties, enabling clinicians electronically to share health records and imaging scans of some 1 million patients.

Heatherington credited Eisenstein with helping the Rochester RHIO win plaudits as one of New York’s best organized health information exchanges.

“The Rochester RHIO has become one of the nation’s most successful health information exchanges, due in large part to Jill’s contributions over the past decade,” he said. “Her interim leadership has been exemplary.”
