Jane Smith Patterson – NCHICA Legend

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.

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.

Connect the Docs – Jared Johnson

Putting it all together – Connect the Docs

My guest today is fellow podcaster and healthcare marketer Jared Johnson.  You may recognize him from some of our Blab sessions in 2016 or from his podcast, “Health IT Marketer.”  He is currently on hiatus from that to work at the Phoenix Children’s Hospital as their Marketing Technology Manager.  How about that, both ‘Marketing’ and ‘Technology’ in the same title!  On top of all that, he authored a book called Connect the Docs, where he distilled the knowledge gained from his many podcast guests.  Listen while we talk about bridging the IT and marketing gap on Get Social Health.
