Federal CTO: Health 2.0 key pillar of healthcare innovation
In this Q&A with iHealthBeat, U.S. Chief Technology Officer Aneesh Chopra discussed how health 2.0 aligns with the Obama administration's larger health reform goals, the federal stimulus package, the administration's open government initiative, and shareable intellectual property. "Health 2.0 is a key pillar of where we believe innovation will take place in the nation's healthcare system," Chopra told iHealthBeat. As we look to shape the market conditions— the incentives to reward wellness and prevention—I have great confidence that the health 2.0 community will rise up to the challenge and engineer game-changing ideas to deliver the results our policymakers in Washington are keen to deliver."
