President Obama has appointed Todd Park chief technology officer, according to a Friday White House announcement.

Park succeeds the first federal CTO Aneesh Chopra after he left his post in January and rejoined The Advisory Board Company as a senior adviser of healthcare technology strategy on Feb. 22.

The White House said Park will be responsible for ensuring adoption of technologies to support homeland security, open government, job creation, access to healthcare and energy efficiency priorities.

The White House said Park will work closely with U.S. Deputy Telecommunications CTO Tom Power.

Power is performing the duties of the Office of Science and Technology Policy’s associate director for technology until a permanent replacement is selected.

Park has served as CTO for the Department of Health and Human Services since August 2009.

Park helped HHS develop and launch the Health Data Initiative, which makes HHS information accessible for download by the public.
