Listen: A conversation with co-founder and president of CareJourney and first CTO of the United States Aneesh Chopra

In 2014, Aneesh Chopra co-founded CareJourney: a digital health startup that provides clinically-relevant analytics for value-based networks, ultimately enabling its clients to coordinate better outcomes for their patients.

Prior to founding CareJourney, Aneesh served as the first chief technology officer of the United States. Appointed by President Barack Obama in 2009, Aneesh spent his three-year service promoting technological innovation, leading initiatives and implementing programs focused on entrepreneurship, healthcare and more. In 2014, Aneesh published Innovative State: How New Technologies Can Transform Government, which details his public service and the need for better collaboration between the public and private sectors.

In a conversation moderated by VillageMD Chief Technology Officer Mike Roberts, Aneesh discusses his decades-long career in both the public and private sectors and the lessons he has learned along the way.
