    Outgoing HDC CEO Dwayne Spradlin. Dear Friends: Some of you may recall my blog post a few months ago sharing our search for Health Data Consortium’s Executive Director and how we’ve been turning our attention to HDC’s Next Chapter.  And you may have seen the exciting announcement last week that Dr. Chris Boone will be starting November 3rd in that role.  Chris has a dynamite background and a truly infectious passion for health data and its potential to change everything.  Having spent considerable time with Chris, I am extremely impressed with his style, professionalism, deep knowledge and understanding of health data, and his formidable command of the policy realm.  His background includes innovative work with nonprofits, large health organizations, pharma, and nearly all our stakeholder groups.  HDC will play a transformational role under Chris’s leadership.  Welcome aboard Chris!
