Paul is a highly experienced executive leader, having recently served as a Project Manager for Brilgent, a Solutions Manager for Molina, and the Health Information Technology Manager for the Alabama Medicaid Agency.

As a 501(c) (6) nonprofit corporation, Idaho Health Data Exchange (IHDE) was established in 2008 to govern the development and implementation of a Health Information Exchange in Idaho. IHDE is governed by a Board of Directors that includes representation from the public and private healthcare payers.
