The Patient Is In
Are Health 2.0 tools and technologies making a difference for patients and if so, how? We tracked some patients as they used Health 2.0 services managing their health and everyday lives. We saw their experiences on video, brought three of them onstage, and met some of the technologists whose tools they used. Finally, famous ePatients gave commentary on the whole process.
Introducing the Winner of the Spring 2008 Health 2.0 Meets Ix Launch!
At our Spring conference, the crowd voted on their favorite technology and in a close-run contest, the winner was Living Profiles, an initiative of the RWJF-funded Project Health Design. Living Profiles is an innovative experiment in capturing real life communications amongst chronically ill teenagers by min- ing the hundreds of text messages they send daily.
Following this special demo, we will have reactions to the video, the patient experiences, and more from our favorite, famous ePatients.

Can Health 2.0 Make Health Care More Affordable?

Looking Ahead: Cats and Dogs
Following the passing of the stimulus and the debate over meaningful use, there’s been lots of tension between the “cats” (the major IT vendors) & “dogs” (the web-based “clinical groupware” vendors). The real question is how the new wave of EMRs is going to integrate with the consumer facing and population management tools. Can there be unity around the common themes of better health outcomes through physician and patient use of technology? Or will the worlds of Health 2.0 and the EMR move down separate paths? We have three very outspoken leaders to debate the question.
