Applying Innovation to the Work of Government: A Case Study of the Office of the National Coordinator for Health IT

Colleagues,

Please find below a link to an Institute of Medicine (IOM) commentary, published today, authored by Dr. Farzad Mostashari, National Coordinator for Health Information Technology in the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (ONC, HHS) ...

In it, Dr. Mostashari describes:

  - The measurable progress acheived to date in EHR adoption

  - How a policy framework based on testing, certification and "Meaningful Use" has led to a dramatic increase in EHR adoption 

Lean Startup "Business Models" in Government

 

Colleagues,

See excellent video from this year's South By Southwest (SXSW 2012) of Todd Park, U.S., Chief Technology Officer (CTO). 

The video, from March 2012, illustrates Todd's passion for "data liberation", the unleashing of lean "business models" in government, and his excitement for health informatics.

As you may know, Todd is a founder of AthenaHealth, Castlight and Healthpoint.

Highly recommended!
