Visionary Health Care Thought Leader and U.S. National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (2011-2013)

REQUEST BOOKING INFORMATION

Farzad Mostashari, M.D. Biography

Dr. Farzad Mostashari is the CEO of Aledade, a start-up he co-founded aimed at helping primary care doctors form accountable care organizations (ACOs) and a Visiting Fellow at the Brookings Institute in Washington DC, where he is focusing on payment reform and delivery system transformation.

Mostashari served from 2011-2013 as the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology where he coordinated US efforts to build a health information technology infrastructure for healthcare reform and consumer empowerment.

During his tenure at the Office of the National Coordinator, including his two years as Principal Deputy, he led the implementation of the Health IT for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act including the design, development and monitoring of the EHR Certification Program (including interoperability standards), the $800M Regional Health IT Extension Program (with 140,000 primary care providers, the largest medical technical assistance program in US history), the “Beacon Communities” program and collaborated with the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services on the design and implementation of the “Meaningful Use” Incentive Program (garnering participation of >85% of eligible hospitals, and >74% of eligible professionals nationwide), in addition to programs for health information exchange, health IT workforce, research and privacy and security.

This period saw a dramatic increase in adoption of Electronic Health Records (EHRs)—from 9 to 44% among hospitals, and 17to 40% among outpatient providers (latest data as of mid-2012). Under his leadership, the agency was recognized as one of the top 25 “Innovations in Government” by the Harvard Kennedy School of Government in 2013.

Previously, Mostashari served at the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene as Assistant Commissioner for the Primary Care Information Project, where he co-led agile development of population health management functionality within a commercial EHR, and its adoption by more than 1,500 providers in underserved communities. Mostashari also led the NYC Center of Excellence in Public Health Informatics and an Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality-funded project focused on quality measurement at the point of care.

He conducted graduate training at the Harvard School of Public Health and Yale Medical School, served his internal medicine residency at Massachusetts General Hospital, and completed the CDC’s Epidemic Intelligence Service program. He was a lead investigator in the outbreaks of West Nile Virus, and anthrax in New York City and among the first developers of real-time nationwide electronic disease surveillance systems.

Speaking Topics
  • Moving a Nation: The Elements of Leadership and Change

    What does it take to effect change? To move an organization—or even a nation—and its people, policies and practices in a novel and positive direction? Farzad Mostashari, M.D., discusses the essential elements of leadership, the importance of public and private sector partnerships and the significance of bottom-up/top-down change. Called “charismatic” by The Washington Post, and highly regarded as an expert in health and technology, Dr. Mostashari’s leadership will positively impact the health of hundreds of millions of people. At the forefront of a health care information technology movement that swept across the nation with unprecedented speed and scope, Dr. Mostashari shares with audiences an insider’s perspective on what is required of individuals and organizations to successfully set, reach and surpass goals; how to effectively garner lasting partnerships with multidimensional benefits; and what steps are necessary—from transformation of beliefs and actions to reforms in policy and infrastructure—to “move a nation.”

  • Data Is Oxygen for Innovation: The Age of Data Coming to Health Care

    While data and connected devices have transformed nearly every aspect of our lives, health care IT is one category still catching up. Farzad Mostashari, M.D.—visiting fellow at Engelberg Center for Health Care Reform (2013-Current)—has succeeded as an advocate for digital medical records. Unlike paper files, which, according to Mostashari are “dead” once filed, digital information can be visualized, analyzed and shared instantaneously. In terms of health care, this is a significant asset. The meaningful use of information at the point of care can improve individual outcomes and public health. But even more transformative is an entirely new ecosystem of applications and services that have been brought to life by this digital revolution, and is creating innovate and effective solutions to health care’s most pressing problems. An expert in the intersection of health care and information technology, Dr. Mostashari provides audiences with a behind-the-scenes look at some of the newest advances in health IT, why “data is,” as he claims, “oxygen for innovation” and what changes we can expect to see by going digital.

  • Health IT and Reform: The Road to Right Care

    When it comes to national prosperity, there are few topics as relevant or pressing to explore as health care. Rising health care costs are staggering our nation’s fiscal health, disparities in health are gaping and the right care is delivered to patients less than half of the time. In a groundbreaking effort led by Farzad Mostashari, M.D.—National Coordinator (2011-2013) and Principal Deputy National Coordinator (2009-2011) for Programs and Policy at the Office of the National Coordinator (ONC)—health information technology was enlisted to reverse these trends and improve patient outcomes. What can be done by individuals and the private and public sectors to address these issues? In a highly informed and detailed analysis, Dr. Mostashari discusses what it will take to set the nation on the road to the right care, what has been done thus far to achieve these goals and the powerful role that multidimensional reform and health IT play in prevention, health and economic prosperity.
