Susannah Fox, who recently stepped down from her position as Chief Technology Officer of the Department of Health and Human Services, was profiled by the WSJ last fall.
As the chief technology officer of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Susannah Fox is carrying on a mission that has long been a passion: helping people navigate health care and related technology. Before being tapped for the federal post last year, she briefly served as entrepreneur in residence at the health-care-focused Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, but had her longest tenure at the Pew Research Center as associate director of the Internet Project from 2000-2014. There, Ms. Fox, who has a degree in anthropology, pioneered research methods to explore how information technology and social media affect the health-care industry and the consumer health-care experience, with a special focus on finding innovative ways to deliver care to people living with chronic illness.
