He is also chairman of the National Alliance for Healthcare Technology and serves as leadership network chair for the National Quality Forum.

He serves on the board of Facet Technologies, the leading global provider of microsampling sharps products, including lancing devices used in diabetes for blood glucose monitoring and other point-of-care diagnostics. He also serves on the board of Physiotherapy, Inc., focused on physical therapy clinics dealing with workers compensation and rehabilitation cases.

He serves on the board and executive committee of Project HOPE and is a member of the board of directors of the Council of Americas.
