Jodi Daniel is a partner in Crowell & Moring's Health Care Group and a member of the group’s Steering Committee. She is also a director at C&M International (CMI), an international policy and regulatory affairs consulting firm affiliated with Crowell & Moring. She leads the firm's Digital Health Practice and provides strategic, legal, and policy advice to all types of health care and technology clients navigating the dynamic regulatory environment related to technology in the health care sector to help them achieve their business goals.

Prior to joining Crowell & Moring, Jodi was the founding director of the Office of Policy in the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC), U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) for a decade after serving in the Office of the General Counsel (OGC) at HHS for five years. At HHS, Jodi helped spearhead important changes in health information privacy and health information technology to improve health care for consumers nationwide. She was also one of the key drafters of the original Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) Privacy Rules and Enforcement Rules and developed the Nationwide Privacy and Security Framework for Electronic Exchange of Health Information.

As former director at ONC, she led the agency’s prominent federal advisory committees to build consensus on health IT standards and policy and established national health IT policy in areas including privacy, security, consumer e-health, health IT safety and oversight, and connecting health care payment and health IT. Jodi established ONC’s regulatory capacity and led the development of health IT standards and certification regulations. She worked across many federal agencies to develop the Federal Health IT Strategic Plan and coordinate policy, including with the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) on the “meaningful use” of electronic health records, with Food and Drug Administration (FDA) on the safety of health IT, with the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) on legalizing electronic prescribing of controlled substances, with the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) on competition and health IT, with the Substance Abuse Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) on integrating behavioral health and physical health, and with the White House Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP) regarding opioid abuse. She also developed the Health Information Security and Privacy Collaboration, working with 42 state and territorial governments to address variation in privacy laws and challenges presented by electronic health information exchange through multi-state collaboration. Jodi formed the State Alliance for e-Health in collaboration with the National Governors’ Association, to promote e-Health, including electronic prescribing and multi-state licensure for telemedicine. She also represented the U.S. Government in presentations and engagements with foreign governments.

As the first senior counsel for health information technology at HHS, Jodi developed the foundational legal strategies and coordinated all legal advice regarding health IT for HHS, founded and chaired the health information technology practice group within OGC, and worked closely with CMS in the development of the e-prescribing regulations and the Stark and anti-kickback rules regarding e-prescribing and electronic health records.

Jodi began her career at a large insurance company advising employers on managed care and group health benefits.
