Presidential Innovation Fellows
Since it was launched in 2012, the Presidential Innovation Fellows program has been delivering impressive results at start-up velocity. This program pairs top innovators from the private sector, non-profits, and academia with top innovators in government to develop solutions that aim to improve lives, save taxpayer dollars, and fuel job creation.
For example, the Fellows worked to expand the Blue Button Initiative, which is helping veterans and others across the country gain secure, online access to their own health records. Through the work of Fellows and their government teammates, the Blue Button Initiative expanded its reach from 85 million to more than 150 million Americans who now are able to use Blue Button-enabled tools to access their own health information from a variety of sources.
The Presidential Innovation Fellows program shows what is possible when we come together to combine unique skills and a shared passion to make our country a better place. GSA is excited to be home to this initiative and we are excited to see what we can help create together in the future.
