Blake Hall is the Co-Founder and CEO of ID.me, the next-generation digital identity network that simplifies how individuals securely prove their identity online. Consumers can verify their identity with ID.me once and seamlessly login across websites without creating a new password and verifying their identity again. 10 federal agencies, 30 states, 38 healthcare organizations, and hundreds of leading consumer brands use ID.me to verify the identity of customers. Prior to ID.me, Blake led a reconnaissance platoon in Iraq. He was awarded two Bronze Stars, one for stopping an Al-Qaida assault on a Combat Support Hospital in Mosul and the other for exceptional performance hunting high-value targets. Blake holds a Bachelor of Science magna cum laude from Vanderbilt University and an MBA from Harvard Business School.
The CARIN Alliance (www.carinalliance.com) is a collaborative group of public and private stakeholders focused on advancing the ability for a consumer to digitally access their health information from any health plan or provider in the US. As part of that effort, CARIN is looking to establish an industry-level framework for digital identity federation. The goal is to enable a universal method for reliable determination of patient identity and authentication in support of highly scalable, secure exchange of EHI (electronic health information). CARIN is currently executing the largest digital identity federation proof of concept in history. It involves public sector partners, such as the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), and the Office of National Coordinator for Health IT (ONC), as well as more than 20 private sector partners such as Kaiser Permanente, Marshfield Health Clinic, CVS Health, ID.me, and others. Our goal is to develop an open framework for how an individual can secure an IAL2 digital identity credential and use that single credential across multiple relying parties using an existing trust framework.
