Recorded: Tuesday September 20, 2022

Webinar Speakers: Andrea Fletcher, Director, Digital Service at CMS; Remy DeCausemaker, Open Source Lead, Digital Service at CMS; Alberto Colón Viera, Staff Engineer, Office of Enterprise Data and Analytics, CMS

The Digital Service at the U.S. Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) works to transform the U.S. healthcare system by modernizing systems, improving the design of healthcare experiences, participating in policy development, and delivering value to the government, providers, and patients. CMS leverages a unique model where talent from industry and government stay on for a ‘tour of duty,’ working alongside dedicated civil servants.

Over 150 million people rely upon the code stewarded at CMS, much of it already open source, and even more that could become open-source in the coming years. Join our webinar to learn about CMS’ open source goals, projects, and future plans, presented by leaders from the CMS Digital Service.

Topics will include:

  • Overview of the CMS Digital Services, including the US Digital Service
  • Goals and objectives of digital transformation at CMS
  • The role of open source software in CMS 
  • Planned future initiatives
