I believe radical thinking can change the way we work and live. I'm a designer by heart and an engineer by trade.

I'm a Senior Advisor at the White House in the Office of Science and Technology Policy. Prior to that, I was a Presidential Innovation Fellow.

I started Pipette, a healthcare startup focused on reducing the number of complications and unplanned readmissions after surgeries. We were using mobile technologies to improve patient care and reduce overall health spending. Our company is a proud product of Rock Health.

On March 2012, Pipette was acquired by Ginger.io, a MIT Media Lab spinoff that uses big-data from mobile phones, machine learning, and statistical pattern matching to improve the world's health.

I've previously worked at Microsoft and Salesforce.com. At Microsoft, I was responsible for the user experience and design for Outlook for Mac 2011. I am on the board of SeventyK, a young adult cancer advocacy group.

All views expressed here are my own.

Gratitude

The special thing about passion projects is that leaps in progress can be made in short periods of time.

From the beginning, the Blue Button+ effort has been driven by the generosity and selflessness of all the participating companies and organizations. Groups large and small lent their most valuable employees to participate in our weekly working sessions. Many of the individuals involved invested their nights and weekends to create a blueprint for the secure and automated transmission of health records.

The impact of the work will be felt over the next 6 months. Patients across the country will start to get digital access to their health records. They will then be able to take those records and use them in new products and services that help them manage and improve their health.

There’s so much potential. The work is not over, but I wanted to take a moment to say thank you to all those that are making it possible. From the 68 companies and organizations to my colleagues at the VA, WH, and ONC.
