San Francisco Fall 2008
Building on the excitement generated by the first two Health 2.0 conferences, the Fall 2008 Health 2.0 User-Generated Healthcare conference took the conversation to a new level across an even more dynamic and panoramic landscape.
A sell-out crowd of over 1,000 saw action-packed demos of new services and tools, saw more than 30 companies in the exhibit hall and discussed in depth how these new technologies are transforming—and in some cases not transforming —the healthcare industry.

Networking Break & Sponsored Deep Dive
How do we recruit patients from disparate populations and their doctors to use Health 2.0 tools? More over, how do we motivate healthcare consumers to become medically literate, empowered and healthier? How do we make healthcare more affordable for employers and insurers? The answer is MedEncentive. CEO Jeff Greene showed the unique web-based system of financial incentives and behavioral motivators to align the interests (AOI™) of doctors and patients with employers/payers to achieve better health and more efficient healthcare.

Search in the Long Tail & Intelligence in Communities
Much of the promise of Health 2.0 is in searching for and finding exact, personalized health information content, especially for rare or hard to categorize conditions. Much of that information is in social networks. Matthew & Indu introduced a new framework looking at the evolution of search into the long tail. And also reaction and commentary from Gilles Frydman, founder of ACOR—the listserv engine that revolutionized the cancer community.

Discussion centered on where the opportunities will be and who’ll be writing the checks, and for what?

Tools for Consumers
Along with search and community, tools are the “third leg” of the Health 2.0 stool. While they have historically been the least developed, they are now much more sophisticated and have great potential to fundamentally change care. Indu & Matthew will introduce a new model for understanding tools within the Health 2.0 context, and look at their ability to offer personalized information and enable decisions and transactions. We’ll be showing the best tools in clinical decision support, online care, diagnostics and financial management.
