Stead elected to IOM leadership council


12/16/2010 - Bill Stead, M.D., associate vice chancellor for Health Affairs and Chief Strategy and Information Officer at Vanderbilt University Medical Center, has been elected to a full term on the Council of the Institute of Medicine (IOM).

Bill Stead, M.D.

Bill Stead, M.D.

Stead, who is internationally known for his contributions to biomedical informatics, was previously appointed to the council in 2009 to fill the unexpired term of Margaret Hamburg, M.D., who resigned when she became commissioner of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

He was the first Vanderbilt University faculty member to serve on the council, and was later joined by Ellen Wright Clayton, M.D., J.D., the Rosalind E. Franklin Professor of Genetics and Health Policy.

“I am honored to be selected by my peers in the IOM to help focus the energies of the organization at this critical time,” Stead said. “It has been fun to work with the talented and diverse members of the council and to learn from their experiences. The council's discussions are a great platform to share insights from the innovative work under way across the Vanderbilt campus and to incorporate our work in the national dialogue.”

Stead is currently serving as co-chair of a concept development group bridging the Councils of the IOM and the National Academy of Engineering to communicate how system design and engineering methods might be used to increase the value of health care to society.

Stead and Clayton are among 16 Vanderbilt faculty who are members of the IOM. Stead will serve from 2011-2013 and is eligible for a second term.

Members are elected on the basis of their professional achievement and commitment to service.
