Our Impact

Markle leverages the potential of information technology to drive solutions to some of the nation’s most pressing problems in the areas of health, the economy, and national security. Our work has led to transformative change in a variety of sectors, including the implementation of national health care reforms that offer Americans the ability to view, download, and transmit their personal health information, and the advancement of a more open and transparent culture of national security information sharing after 9/11. Markle’s work since 1998 has led to sweeping reforms at the federal, state, and local levels.
