In the podcast, Jane Smith Patterson discusses her childhood and education, career, accomplishments while serving in NC Governor Jim Hunt’s administration, and how NCHICA was founded.
Jane, a lifelong activist to advance fair and equal treatment for minorities and women, was involved in the early Civil Rights movement, Equal Rights Amendment, and ACLU, and met leaders like Martin Luther King and Jimmy Carter. She was also a visionary who recognized early on the power of computers and how they could transform the state’s economy and healthcare. She was involved in building the state’s “information highway” while working in Governor Hunt’s administration and advanced it worldwide while with ITT. In 1994, she wrote the Executive Order signed by Gov. James Hunt that established NCHICA, the North Carolina Healthcare Information and Communications Alliance, to advance healthcare through the use of information technology. NCHICA was a pioneer in transforming the U.S. healthcare system and is credited with being the founder of the HIPAA Privacy law.

Robert Furberg, Senior Clinical Informaticist at RTI International, will discuss the Add Health Consumer Wearable Ancillary Study.
The National Longitudinal Study of Adolescent to Adult Health (Add Health) is a longitudinal study of a nationally representative sample of U.S. adolescents in grades 7-12 during the 1994-95 school year. Add Health is jointly administered by UNC-Chapel Hill’s Carolina Population Center and RTI International. The study subjects (“cohort”) are being re-interviewed throughout 2016-2018 to collect social, environmental, behavioral and biological data with which to track the emergence of chronic disease as they enter their fourth decade of life.
The Add Health Consumer Wearable Ancillary Study has surveyed 13,000 individuals drawn from the cohort to capture data on smartphone and consumer wearable device ownership. Hear more about the study and Robert’s work.
