A new chairman for Allscripts and new initiatives from three other firms are among recent health information technology vendor announcements:

* Allscripts has named Dennis Chookaszian as chairman of the board of directors, succeeding Phil Pead who was terminated last week.

Among other posts, Chookaszian has served as chair and CEO at financial advice firm mPower Inc., chair and CEO at CNA Insurance Companies, and chair of the Financial Accounting Standards Advisory Council.
