Last week I was privileged to speak with Paul Tarini, team director of the Pioneer Portfolio at the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.

Our full interview is available in the associated podcast. Topics and questions we covered included:

  • What happens when you actually solve a health care problem?
  • How the foundation’s Project HealthDesign aims to capture observations of daily living (ODLs) like sleep patterns and eating habits.
  • Current trends in computing and health care. Specifically, how capturing, tracking, and understanding health data can help manage chronic disease

Disclosure: The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation was a sponsor of the health track at last week’s OSCON convention.
