Farzad Mostashari, MD, used to have mixed feelings about publicly advocating for patients in his role as a policymaker until he realized that his position as the ONC Director put him in the perfect position to do just that. For the past several years he has encouraged increased patient engagement at HIMSS by (literally) wearing his feelings on his back!
In this video, Farzad shows off the beautiful hand painted jacket that medical advocate Regina Holliday created for him to illustrate his personal commitment to patient engagement and the Blue Button.
