Regina Holliday Features OA Systems' CEO in New Painting

Posted on: December 7th, 2010 by admin No Comments

Regina Holliday, a renowned artist and patient rights advocate, has produced a new painting called “The Menu Set,” which highlights some familiar faces in the Health IT world.

Some of the more prominent faces are Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius and National Coordinator for Health Information Technology David Blumenthal.

Secretary Sebelius appears to be offering pie and water to a patient seated at the bar of a restaurant while¬† Dr. Blumenthal appears to be holding the restaurant’s menu.

Interestingly, Omar Ahmed, the CEO of OA Systems, is depicted as the one taking the patient’s order.

When asked about him being portrayed in this painting, Omar said, “This is quite an honor for me as I am included amongst some of the most important figures in our industry, but I would like to think that it is not a depiction of just me, rather it represents our company OA Systems, and our philosophy of wanting to understand what patients’ needs are and our willingness to work towards improving their lives.”

We sincerely thank Regina for including our CEO in this esteemed group of people and for continuously being a championed supporter for concerned patients.

You can view this painting in person as it is on display throughout the month of December at Politics and Prose Bookstore and Coffeehouse, located at 5015 Connecticut Ave, NW in Washington, DC.
