Dr. Farzad Mostashari
Co-founder and CEO, Aledade
Mostashari was the former National Coordinator for Health IT within HHS and served as an expert at the Brookings Institution's Engelberg Center for Health Care Reform. He also founded the NYC Primary Care Information Project, which equipped physicians in underserved communities with electronic health records. Mostashari has written for the New York Times, Journal of American Medical Association, and Health Affairs. He received his medical degree from Yale University School of Medicine.
Mostashari speaks: “My whole career has been about population health, and using technology to bring data to doctors in order to help them make better decisions. The goal for me has always been achieving better health for an entire population. We’ve learned that technology is necessary but not sufficient. To achieve those goals we also need to have a business model for physicians to focus on prevention, outcomes and keeping people healthy.”
