An un-conference addressing the Transformation of Health Care through Social Networks, Open Standards and Web 2.0 Technology. This is part of the Health 2.0 movement towards participatory health care inspired the definition that Ted Eytan and others (including patients) evolved for Health 2.0:
Health 2.0 is participatory Healthcare
Enabled by information, software, and community that we collect or create, we the patients can be effective partners in our own healthcare, and we the people can participate in reshaping the health system itself.
March, 2009 (Provisional)
TBD (To be determined)
SponsorsI learn things from the EKIVE blog: "A trusted relationship is central to helping achieve behavior change. Face to face delivery of service is the best way to accomplish this but this is not scalable or economically deliverable. These tools are attempting to mimic the approach of a face-to-face engagement.
These systems are essential because consumers also do not necessarily have the time to devote to face-to-face meetings in their busy lives. Other tools and services also operate in this space. Seeing the demonstration from American Well earlier today comes to mind as an example of another platform that can meet this need."
