Bryan Sivak Named New HHS CTO

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services announced that Bryan Sivak will fill the role of Chief Technology Officer at HHS. He succeeds Todd Park, the current U.S. CTO.

Park spent three years in the position leading efforts to modernize and improve the health care system, work that Sivak will continue.

Government Technology profiled Sivak, who is currently Maryland’s Chief Innovation Officer, earlier this year.

Upon his arrival last May, Sivak was tasked with helping to quickly implement some of Gov. Martin O’Malley’s signature initiatives, like creating a health insurance exchange, and addressing issues like broadband access and engaging citizens in their government via social media and other technologies.

In less than a year, Sivak launched a grant program to help local governments start bike-sharing initiatives, as well as a microgrant program for the state Department of Health and Mental Hygiene that funds implementation of employee-generated ideas for low-cost ways to improve effectiveness and efficiency.
