This post was originally published on GSA.gov We have the best jobs in government, period. Each day we wake up empowered to solve critical issues facing public safety, national security, healthcare, and transportation. As Presidential Innovation Fellows (PIF), we are part of our nation’s Technology Transformation Services at the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA). We joined the federal government as entrepreneurs-in-residence to help federal agencies provide more accessible, efficient, and effective products and services to the American people and to tackle tough national problems.

Starting October 2018, Presidential Innovation Fellows (PIF) kicked-off and will lead a 14-week tech sprint with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and other digital enthusiasts. The goal of this tech sprint is to transform federal open data from HHS, the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), and other agencies into digital tools. Modeled after The Opportunity Project (TOP) at U.S. Department of Commerce, the TOP Health tech sprint is specifically designed to improve the patient experience, for example, by assisting in novel therapeutics accessibility and improving clinical trials.
