5 Ways Health 2.0 is Changing Care Delivery

Some people think Health 2.0 is purely a consumer movement, but its roots are as firmly grounded in health care systems and provider workflows as they are in sleek new consumer devices and well-designed fitness apps.

Now more than ever, health systems and health care providers are turning to Health 2.0 tools and technologies to navigate the shifting care delivery landscape. The way these tools are being developed, tested, and implemented is not only paving the road for future technology adoption, but also inching the broader health system closer to fundamental changes in the way medicine is practiced and delivered.

This fall at the 9th Annual Health 2.0 Fall Conference, health systems and care delivery take center stage. The Innovating Care Delivery Symposium is bringing some of the most progressive health system executives and providers together into one room to discuss how their organizations are embracing new technologies to deliver better care. In particular, the Symposium and the Conference focuses on 5 key ways Health 2.0 is changing care delivery:

  • Transitioning to Value-Based Care: The reality of value-based care looms large for many health systems like Advocate Health Care in Chicago where sophisticated new data tools are transforming population health.
  • Tools for Clinical Workflow: Electronic medical records were not the technological leap health care needed, but large providers like Dignity Health and Mt. Sinai are diligently layering on new technology to smooth day-to-day life for providers and improve care.

  • Care Coordination & Collaboration: Technology has revolutionized communication for the average consumer, while medical teams still struggle to efficiently communication with each other and patients. Remote monitoring at Kaiser, UCSF, and Minnesota Children’s has shown promise, but looks uneven at best.
  • Fostering New Innovations: New technology takes time to trickle down into medical practice, but as the speed of innovation increases, health systems like Henry Ford and Providence are developing new processes for putting innovation into practice.
  • Improving the Patient Experience: The patient experience is crucial for improving patient outcomes, which is why health systems are increasingly turning to consumer-oriented tools to help patients navigate care, communicate with providers, and actively manage their health.

The collision of Health 2.0 tools and technologies with the traditional care delivery system is upon us, and the focal point of that impact is the 9th Annual Health 2.0 Fall Conference. From attending the Symposium to showcasing a product in front of top hospital executives, presenting a partnership case study, or designing a lunch session for the leaders who will shape care delivery in the years to come, there are a number of ways to engage Health 2.0’s elite provider audience and mold the conversation.
