When Michael Marchbank, president and CEO, Dr. Lee, and Philip Barker, vice president of planning, informatics and analytics, started having conversations about organizing a hackathon, it wasn’t long before the name Dr. Daniel Schwartz came up.

Medical director for the renal program, Dr. Schwartz is known for his affinity for technology. He uses innovative technologies in his nephrology practice, has created many online and mobile medical education offerings, knows “enough programming to be dangerous” and has participated in other hackathons. So he’ll be one of the judges at the Fraser Health Hackathon. Read his interview on our Newsroom site and learn more about his high hopes for our creative and passionate staff joining forces with the experienced Vancouver-area tech community.
