TriZetto Corp., Denver, ap­pointed R. Andrew Eck­ert CEO of the health­care in­for­ma­tion tech­nol­ogy com­pany.

Eck­ert, known for his ex­pe­ri­ence in health­care in­for­ma­tion man­age­ment, op­er­a­tions, fi­nance, strate­gic plan­ning, prod­uct de­vel­op­ment and mar­ket­ing, has served as CEO for sev­eral health­care and soft­ware com­pa­nies. He joins TriZetto from be­hav­ioral health­care ser­vices provider CRC Health Group, Cu­per­tino, Calif., where he has served as CEO since Jan­uary 2011.

Aneesh Cho­pra, the for­mer White House chief tech­nol­ogy of­fi­cer, and Glen Tull­man, for­mer CEO of elec­tronic health-records de­vel­oper Allscripts Health­care So­lu­tions, have been named spe­cial ad­vis­ers to Sil­i­con Val­ley-based cloud stor­age com­pany Box. The com­pany aims to over­come the in­dus­try’s ret­i­cence to use cloud-based ser­vices for health­care in­for­ma­tion.

“It’s not enough to put ex­ist­ing health­care IT so­lu­tions into the cloud,” said Tull­man, now the man­ag­ing part­ner of 7Wire Ven­tures, a Chicago-based ven­ture cap­i­tal firm, in a news re­lease. “We need so­lu­tions that will help providers re-en­gi­neer their work­flow pro­cesses and make data shar­ing in health­care eas­ier and more user-in­tu­itive.”
