Under The Boughs with Aneesh Chopra (+ end of summer BBQ!)Event | September 14th, 2017
On Sept. 14, 2017, the Cambia Grove will welcome President Obama’s former Chief Technology Officer Aneesh Chopra for a fireside chat with Lee Huntsman, President Emeritus of the University of Washington and host of Under the Boughs.
The discussion at this Under the Boughs seeks to advance the national conversation on placing people at the center of care delivery. Questions discussed will include: How can open health data fuel new care models? What are the associated policy and technical levers we can pull to simplify data ingestion, preparation, and use by the care team?
Huntsman and Chopra plan to discuss the work of The CARIN Alliance— a non-partisan, multi-sector alliance convened by former leaders of the Office of National Coordinator David Blumenthal, David Brailer, Chopra, and former HHS Secretary and Utah Governor Mike Leavitt. The Alliance seeks to unite industry leaders in advancing the adoption of consumer-directed exchange across the U.S. Working collaboratively with government leaders, the group seeks to advance the ability for consumers and their authorized caregivers to easily get, use, and share their digital health information when, where, and how they want to achieve their goals. CARIN’s members include patients and caregiver organizations, health care entities, and health information technology vendors.
At the end of this event, we’ll also be celebrating the end of summer with a special barbeque—please come join us on the deck, weather permitting!
