I oversee the health projects, making sure that our work is driven by input from doctors, nurses and patients, and backed by robust clinical evidence. I get to work with an incredible hybrid team of doctors, engineers, and security experts, all working towards improving healthcare with technology. We have two separate strands of work: the immediate development and deployment of our mobile app Streams (which doesn’t yet include any AI), and a set of longer-term AI research projects (which use depersonalised data).

The Office of the National Coordinator for Health IT (ONC) continues to advocate for improved data exchange, with the interoperability and information blocking rules being the latest federal push. One of the ONC’s goals with its latest guidance is to establish an ecosystem of innovation, with electronic health records (EHRs) serving as the foundation — i.e., the platform enabling application development and user access. But when it comes developing an EHR-based marketplace for innovation and mandating open APIs, there are many challenges for all players involved — including EHR vendors, tasked with standing up these sustainable marketplaces for innovation, and third-party developers, forced to bet big on which EHR platform(s) to innovate for and hope they chose right.

He currently resides in prison.
