Inaugural ONC Google Plus Hangout

On Tuesday February 12, 2013 the HHS Office of the National Coordinator hosted it's first Google + Hangout. The participants were:

  • Doug Fridsma, M.D., Ph.D. - Chief Scientist at ONC
  • Arien Malec - VP Strategy and Product Marketing at RelayHealth, Former Coordinator for the Direct Project
  • Deven McGraw - Director of the Health Privacy Project at CDT
  • John Moehrke - Principal Engineer: Interoperability and Security at GE
  • Vince Kuraitis - Principal, Better Health Technologies, LLC
  • Brian Ahier - Health IT Evangelist
  • John Travis - Senior Director and Solution Strategist, Regulatory Compliance at Cerner
  • Alice Leiter - Policy Counsel at Center for Democracy & Technology

It was a very interesting conversation and I look forward to future ONC Hangouts. This was a great example of government as a platform and I expect there will be some great uses of this tool for engaging the health IT community.
