Making Health Care Cheaper

Inspired by a keynote we heard some time back from Mark Smith at California Health Care Foundation, and by the work of organizations such as West Wireless Health Institute, we’re going to push the envelope on how Health 2.0 technologies and the companies using them can actually lower the cost of health care. Here we show new models for care delivery, new Health 2.0 technologies that reduce costs, and new technology models that take advantage of lightweight tools and rapid cycles for development and deployment. We also address alternate funding models that are tailored for a lower cost, faster and more iterative approach in health technology innovation.

In the final session, some key players will discuss their vision for the future of health care, and the role Health 2.0 will play.
