120 Days then new National Coordinator for Health Information Technology?

Healtcare IT News reports that Robert Kolodner, Interim National Coordinator for Health Information Technology will only be in the position thru January 2007 and will then return to his position at the VA.

To maintain momentum the health care industry need a charismatic national leader on health information technology to help guide and coordinate a uniform and practical national policy on health information. The focus must remain on adopting technology that provides better, more efficient care and treatment.

Who that person should be (or will be) remains a mystery. If you've got any suggestions -- please post in the comments. I'd be interested to hear of potential candidates.
