The Indiana Health Information Exchange has named Harold Apple as CEO and president. He succeeds J. Marc Overhage, M.D., the exchange's founding leader who will remain as chief strategic officer and national policy advisor.

Overhage will focus on using his expertise in medical informatics and health information exchange to influence policymaking at the national level. Apple was formerly majority owner and leader of Vector Technologies Inc., a business outsourcing, consulting and software development firm serving life insurance companies. Apple also served as one of the founders of the Indiana Software Association and the Indiana Information Technology Association, both predecessors of what is now known as TechPoint.

The Indiana Health Information Network serves more than 80 hospitals and 19,000 physicians. An IHIE collaboration also operates the Central Indiana Beacon Community, one of 17 HITECH Act-funded regional collaboratives to establish and disseminate best practices for the use of health information technology.  More information is available at
