Artist, Patient Advocate
Regina Holliday is a Maryland-based patient advocate and artist known for painting a series of murals depicting the need for clarity and transparency in medical records.
With her passion for advocating for patients to receive timely access to their health care data, her artwork became part of the national health care debate, earning her a platform to push for legislation that would provide better care for patients. Continuing her advocacy through art, she also started The Walking Gallery movement, where more than 350 volunteer members don blazers painted with their mission within health care. The members of Walking Gallery attend medical conferences with a powerful visual story painted on their backs. The paintings help to convey the fact that the people wearing them are living, breathing examples of patients impacted by health care decisions, as opposed to just a statistical number. Holliday’s jacket paintings depicting the patient story have been covered in The Wall Street Journal, Marketplace, and USA Today.
Backed by her own patient and caregiving experiences, Regina Holliday travels the globe heralding her message of patient empowerment and inclusion in health care decision making. Holliday is passionate about the benefits of health information technology and timely data access for patients, which is why she was one of HealthTech's Must-Read Health IT Blogger’s in 2017.
