Chief Strategy Officer, Board Chair, Principal
"Appropriate, facile access to health information is transformative. Let’s make it happen."

As Chief Strategy Officer, Liora focuses on new areas where Lantana can apply our multidimensional skills to the benefit of providers, public health agencies, payers, and every healthcare consumer.

Liora founded Lantana in 2005 to develop and implement groundbreaking data standards for the exchange of electronic healthcare information. In 1997, she introduced XML as the basis for exchange of health information, paving the way to internet-friendly syntax for all future exchange standards. In the same year, she led the project that laid the basis for the HL7 Clinical Document Architecture (CDA) and was first author on CDA Release 1. In 2007 she co-founded the Health Story Project which developed eight exchange standards in three years and when consolidated with the Continuity of Care Document (CCD), became the backbone for EHR data reuse supporting continuity of care, public health, and quality improvement.

Liora served on the HL7 International Board of Directors 2005-2008 and as co-chair of the HL7 Structured Documents Work Group for many years. She is the Chair of the Lantana Board of Directors.
