The new health care environment is continually moving into the hands of the individual consumer. The New Environment for Better Health Care Decisions, co-moderated by Indu Subaiya and Matthew Holt, addressed the issues and benefits of the integration of consumer data with clinical experiences. Ryan Beckland from Validic introduced the session as a sponsor. Speakers included Susannah Fox, Tim Kelsey, Neal Sofian, Jamie Heywood, Amy Cueva, David Whitlinger, and Lygeia Ricciardi. Demos exemplifying this shift included Dossia, Fitbit, Mana Health, and HealthifyMe.
Over the past 15 years, Andy Effenson has focused his expertise on the development of strategic partnerships, lead generation programming, and product distribution within the IT, healthcare and employee benefit communities. Andy’s demonstration provided a tour of Dossia’s population health management dashboard which allows for real-time population analysis and interventions for both patients and providers.
We talked with Jim Hansen, VP and Executive Director at Dossia, about the biggest challenges, trends and developments in health care technology at the Health 2.0 San Francisco 2011 Fall Conference.
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.
