The ASNR is pleased to introduce the new Health Policy Committee (HPC), chaired by Robert M. Barr, M.D. Previously called the “Clinical Practice Committee,” the HPC has been rebranded and refocused to address health policy and practice issues of importance to our membership. The HPC will continue to act as a steering committee for three underlying operational committees, which have also had minor name “refreshes” for 2013. These are the Economics Committee, chaired by William Donovan, MD, MPH, the Standards & Guidelines Committee, chaired by Jacqueline Bello, MD and co-chaired by John Jordan, MD, and the Quality, Safety & Value Committee, chaired by David Seidenwurm, MD.
