We are pleased to announce Aneesh Chopra will be our second-day keynote speaker for the 17th Annual Healthcare Private Equity and Finance Conference. Chopra is the president of CareJourney, an open data intelligence service launched by Hunch Analytics, a “hatchery” he co-founded to incubate ideas that improve the productivity of health and education markets.
From 2009 to 2012, Chopra served as the first U.S. Chief Technology Officer and prior to that as Virginia’s fourth Secretary of Technology. His public service focused on better public-private collaboration as described in his book, Innovative State: How New Technologies Can Transform Government.
In 2011, Chopra was named to Modern Healthcare's list of the “100 Most Influential People in Healthcare,” and in 2008, to Government Technology magazine's Top 25 in their “Doers, Dreamers, and Drivers” issue. He is a member of the Council on Virginia’s Future who earned his master's degree in Public Policy from Harvard Kennedy School in 1997 and his bachelor's degree from The Johns Hopkins University in 1994.
