BlueButton on FHIR (##BBonFHIR / #BlueButton) Presentation from #HxR2015

Yesterday I made a quick trip to Boston to take part in HXRefactored 2015 presented by Matthew Holt and Indu Subaya’s Health 2.0 Organization and Mad*Pow. I was there to talk about the work I am doing at CMS to build an enhanced BlueButton Service for Medicare Beneficiaries. I am calling the project “BlueButton on FHIR” (pronounced “BlueButton on Fire”)

I have to say Julian Treasure’s closing keynote was a brilliant end to a great conference. Check out any of Julian’s Ted Talks
(; ). He really put the role that sound plays in our health in to perspective.

As I promised in my blog post yesterday, I have posted the slides from my own “BlueButton on FHIR” presentation to slideshare:
