Health Care Design Conference - 2013 Boston


About Me

Regina Holliday is an artist, speaker and author in Washington DC. She writes about the benefits of HIT and timely data access for patients and families. She painted a series of murals depicting the need for clarity and transparency in medical records. This advocacy mission was inspired by her late husband Frederick Allen Holliday II and his struggle to get appropriate care during 11 weeks of continuous hospitalization at 5 facilities. Regina paints and speaks at medical conferences throughout the world. Her work is visual reminder of the patient in the center of any policy debate and technical application. She also began an advocacy movement called “The Walking Gallery.” The Gallery consists of medical providers and advocates who wear patient story paintings on the backs of business suits. Her artwork has been in peer-reviewed journals such as the BMJ and APA journals. She recently wrote a book "The Walking Wall: 73 Cents to the Walking Gallery."
