America’s CTO Park: Goals of the Health Data Initiative
Commonwealth Club - SF Club Office
U.S. Chief Tech Officer Todd Park will discuss the health data initiative and how advances in technology will continue to affect changes to our health-care system, create jobs and improve life for Americans. He will focus on his current work and how Healthcare.gov (which he helped create in his previous position as CTO of HHS) is being incorporated to help reduce health-care costs. He will also briefly discuss his overall work as CTO and how his health-care work ties in to this. Park joined the administration in August 2009 as chief technology officer of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. In this role, he served as a change agent and “entrepreneur-in-residence,” helping HHS harness the power of data, technology and innovation to improve the health of the nation. "
