Hello, this is

Omar Shaker

I am a healthcare futurist. Being an MD trained in data analytics, my career goal is to enable trust and transparency with clinical data innovation. I'm aware that healthcare needs to be evolved *not disrupted*

Clinical Data Subject Matter Expert between San Francisco & Cairo

I helped major US payers (Kaiser,BCBS,HAP,Highmark) and large medical centers ingest and analyze clinical data to avoid waste, comply with government measures, and provide better patient care. I work towards a world where clinical data flows freely and build transparency between payers, providers and patients. My passion for innovation comes from the frustrations I experienced in healthcare as an MD in Egypt followed by Transplant Surgery internships at TUFTS New England Medical Center.

I have been invited to present at the HL7 FHIR roundtables and have won multiple innovation awards, most notably, the California Healthcare Foundation's Social Determinants of Health design challenge. I am proud to have founded Egypt's biggest digital health network and ecosystem through the Health 2.0 | Egypt chapter.
