Innovative State

How New Technologies Can Transform Government

In Innovative State, America's first Chief Technology Officer Aneesh Chopra tells the story of a new revolution in America. Over the course of our history, America has had a pioneering government matched to the challenges of the day. But over the past twenty years, as our economy and our society have been completely changed by technology, and the private sector has innovated, government has stalled, trapped in models that were designed for the America of the past. Aneesh Chopra, tasked with leading the charge for a more open, tech-savvy government, here shows how we can reshape our government and tackle our most vexing problems, from economic development to affordable healthcare. Drawing on interviews with leaders and building on his firsthand experience, Chopra's Innovative State is a fascinating look at how to be smart, do more with less, and reshape American government for the twenty-first century.

In the News

I've always enjoyed CSPAN for offering a platform where ideas can be discussed in a more conversational manner. Here's my latest discussion on the role of the CTO and how it informed my writing in Innovative State:

Aneesh was on "Bloomberg West" on November 11th with Workday Vice President Leighanne Levensaler to talk about how big data creates solutions for veteran unemployment. 

Aneesh spoke about the digitization of health records, healthcare.gov and the future of digital health on VentureBeat's podcast, "What to Think". You can listen to the podcast here.
