Leblanc and Meisner Appointed ENHAC Commissioners

April 10, 2012

The Electronic Healthcare Network Accreditation Commission (EHNAC), a non-profit standards development organization and accrediting body, announced the appointment of two new commissioners. Luigi Leblanc was appointed in December 2011, while Deborah Meisner was added in February 2012.

They join 13 commissioners and consumer representatives from both private and public organizations and will serve the organization through 2014 and 2015, respectively.

“Luigi and Deborah bring critical insight and decades of healthcare experience to our commissioners panel,” says Debra Hopkinson, operations vice president of EHNAC. “Our commissioners represent diverse interests in the healthcare industry, and all of their viewpoints are necessary in preserving EHNAC’s accreditation reputation and credibility.”

Luigi Leblanc is the director of technology and co-owner of Zane Networks (ZaneNet), an SBA 8(a) certified woman-owned small business that assists organizations and groups in adopting emerging technology tools. Since 2000, Leblanc has guided health IT projects for federal, state and local governmental agencies and for the private sector. He currently leads the implementation team responsible for building out an EHR implementation in the British Virgin Islands linking a hospital, a clinic, a mobile MRI unit and three pharmacies into a community-wide exchange. Leblanc serves on the Maryland MSO advisory board, the Maryland HIE policy board, the Caribbean Policy Institute board and the Caribbean-American Political Action Committee.

Deborah Meisner is vice president of regulatory compliance strategy for Emdeon, a provider of revenue and payment cycle management and clinical information exchange solutions. In this role, Meisner is responsible for tracking the industry standards organizations and administration simplification regulations. With more than 40 years of experience in the health care industry—20 of which focused on electronic data interchange—Meisner chairs the Emdeon Standards Steering Committee, in which industry standards are reviewed, developed and maintained. Meisner is also on the WEDI board of directors and co-chairs the Transactions and Codes Sets Subcommittee. She participates in HL7 Attachment Workgroup, CAQH CORE, National Uniform Billing Committee and the National Uniform Claim Committee.

“We look forward to the value that Luigi and Deborah will bring to EHNAC as the need for electronic transaction standards and accreditation continues to evolve,” says Hopkinson.
