Patient Innovator Track

What if technically minded patients had access to their data from hospitals, labs, and apps? What if they could collect the data themselves and massage and format it however they like?

The Patient Innovator Track provides a stage to patients and family caregivers who are taking control of their health using data about their disease and their treatment. We invite patients to show the unimagined things people can do with data when their health is at stake. The goal of the track is to inspire the DevDays audience and to share the values that underpin FHIR.


The Patient Innovator Track takes place during DevDays. Four finalists get the opportunity to demo their achievements in pre-recorded 10 minute pitches.

The following finalists are nominated:

  • Morgan Gleason: 12 doctors and 23 portals
  • Olivier Karasira: Turning Paper Records into FHIR & SNOMED CT in Africa
  • Bray Patrick-Lake: I’m Entering to Shine a Light on the Void
  • Hamza Salem: Diabetes Tracker into a Prototype App


The track is led by Dave deBronkart, also known as e-Patient Dave. Members of the jury are Grahame Grieve (founder of FHIR),Virginia Lorenzi (NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital), and Ross Martin (360 Degree Insights, LLC).
