patient IDs, identified millions of medical record errors and helped
combat prescription opiate abuses. Brad will remain a member of the
CrossChx board of directors.

“Artificial intelligence is a generation-changing technology with the
potential to improve productivity in ways we have not seen for decades,”
says Mascho. “NCI has made a very conscious decision to prioritize
innovation and is perfectly positioned to bring game-changing solutions
to the federal sector. I could not be more excited about the opportunity
to spearhead these efforts and join the NCI team.”
