The “Yet More and Different Unmentionables” panel took place at the San Francisco Health 2.0 conference in 2011.
Kyra Bobinet, Managing Director, Strategic Diversification, Aetna & Brent Poole, CEO, Mindbloom
Kyra joined Aetna in 2008 to contiue her work in health innovation in wellness and mind body connections. She’s now responsible for finding answers to the growing need for seniors to prolong their independence, quality of life and social connectivity through their twilight years. Brent joined up with veteran 3-D game designer Chris Hewett to create Mindbloom. When we were looking for an example of a health care organization working with a technology company around health issues of both peer support and spirituality, we knew we’d hit on the perfect combination with Aetna and Mindbloom. This talk was given during the “Yet More and Different Unmentionables” panel at the San Francisco Health 2.0 conference in 2011.

Demo of the iNexx Referrals app from the new Aetna & Medicity iNexx store which was was part of the “Employers, Payers and the Great Health 2.0 Awakening” panel at the 2011 Health 2.0 conference in San Francisco. Possibly more than any other mainstream insurer Aetna has pursued information technology solutions to health system problems. It’s made big purchases including Active Health Management and Medicity, and been working with a string of Health 2.0 companies like Healthline, and more recently Abilto and Mindbloom.
Employers and insurers have been the sleeping giants of health care. But now they are increasingly active in guiding people they cover in wellness programs and in collaborating on the infrastructure for new delivery models. How are they using Health 2.0 as part of their awakening? This panel was part of the 2011 Health 2.0 conference in San Francisco.
