VHI Announces Board Members
RICHMOND, Va., May 3, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — Virginia Health Information announces Dr. Jay Schukman has been elected as the new Anthem Representative to the VHI Board of Directors. Dr. Schukman’s experience and leadership abilities will contribute to the organization’s further development during this exciting time.
Dr. Schukman is currently the Regional Vice-President and Senior Medical Director with WellPoint, Inc. and serves as a member of the Richmond Academy of Medicine, Medical Society of Virginia and Virginia Academy of Family Physicians.
“Actionable, accurate information to drive decisions in healthcare is becoming more critical,” said Dr. Schukman. “In my experience VHI has been a leader in healthcare information in Virginia.”
It is with regret that the Board accepts the resignation of Dr. Rome S. Walker, Board Secretary, effective immediately. Dr. Walker requested the change due to relocation to Charleston, SC.

James L. Kammert has been re-elected to the Board as a consumer representative who also serves as Treasurer.
