“CHIA’s mission to bring transparency to the incredibly complex world of health care demands strong and experienced leadership. As we strive to improve access to quality health care, it is more important than ever that we have the data we need to make smart health care policy,” said Attorney General Maura Healey. “I am confident that Ray is the right person to continue to ensure that policymakers and all health care stakeholders have the information they need to meet our goals.”

“Ray Campbell brings to CHIA not only energy, but also a depth of knowledge of health care issues, especially in the areas of policy, technology, and data,” said Auditor Suzanne M. Bump. “He brings a forward-looking vision for the agency that is well suited to serving the residents of the Commonwealth.”

“Ray’s public and private healthcare experience and leadership will ensure a smooth transition for CHIA and will help advance their important role in the Massachusetts healthcare community,” said Secretary of Health and Human Services Marylou Sudders. “I thank Áron Boros for serving as the first Executive Director of CHIA and for his public service.  Áron built a good team and solid foundation for the agency and we are all committed to ensuring that good work continues.”

“I am incredibly excited to be joining CHIA at a time when data is critical to the success of our healthcare system,” said Ray Campbell.  “Massachusetts is a recognized national leader in both healthcare delivery and healthcare reform, and data will be an essential part of our efforts to improve both the quality and the efficiency of care. CHIA has an important role in making sure our health system has the data it needs to be successful, and I am looking forward to working with the staff at CHIA and with other stakeholders.” 

Campbell was formally a Commissioner of the GIC and has held a number of senior positions in the public and non-profit sectors.  For seven years, Mr. Campbell was the Chief Executive Officer of the Massachusetts Health Data Consortium, a non-profit organization that promoted the use of health IT and data to improve the healthcare system.  Prior, he served as the Executive Director and CEO of the Massachusetts Corporation for Educational Telecommunications.  He also worked in state government as the General Counsel for the Information Technology Division and as the Director of Special Projects for the Executive Office for Administration and Finance.  He has a Master’s in Public Administration from Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government, a law degree from Suffolk University, and a B.A. from Bates College.
