Susannah Fox, outgoing chief technology officer at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services chief technology officer, has said she believes entrepreneurship and innovation programs are key for HHS to accomplish its mission to protect the health and well-being of people.

Fox wrote in a blog entry posted Friday that HH’s office of the CTO worked to establish a culture of innovation to help department personnel carry out various tasks and encourage industry professionals to offer assistance.

“The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services faces an increasingly complex mission amidst rapid technological change,” she noted.

She added some of her office’s programs include the recruitment of talent from outside the department, use of open data technology to manage health and human services, modernization of information technology acquisition and identification of challenges and opportunities in health and technology.
