Former National Coordinator for Health Information Technology at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Dr. Farzad Mostashari, recently launched “Aledade,” a startup that partners with independent primary care physicians to make it easy and inexpensive for them to form or join Accountable Care Organizations (ACO). The Aledade platform provides physicians with information on regulations, support from on-site medical directors, EHR optimization and performance reports based on data collected by the platform. It also possesses tools to help physicians connect with their patients.
“For me, Health IT was never the “ends,” but a “means” to better health and better care, and I continue to believe that better data and technology is the key to a successful transformation of health care. And it is why the attempts to do so now can succeed, where they have failed before,” said Mostashari in his health care blog. “Empowering doctors on the front lines of medicine with cutting edge technology that helps them understand and improve the health of all their patients- that is the mission of our new company, and one that has animated my entire career.”
