The Future of Research – Part 2

The emergence of user-generated content, and the rise of patient involvement in Health 2.0 is radically changing research in both discovery and clinical practice. It’s raising important questions. What is peer review? What is evidence? And what’s appropriate methodology in a world in which data are being generated and released from so many diverse sources so quickly? We’ll be looking across the spectrum from genomics to clinical trial recruiting all the way to clinical research and decisions made by providers and consumers in everyday practice.

Tools and Unplatforms Part 1: The Data Utility Layer

In the last year the complexity of moving data has increased, but technological solutions linking data in different systems, while tackling the thorny issues of privacy, identity and permissions, are becoming more important. This panel will show some of those leading solutions, and the many unplatforms they need to connect with. (UnPlatforms comprise the next frontier in moving data between web/mobile/ubiquitous internet connected devices).

George Halvorson, CEO at Kaiser Permanente, Discusses Health Care System Integration

George Halvorson, CEO, Kaiser Permanente 

When George became the first non-physician head of Kaiser Permanente, few suspected that the organization could transform itself in the way it has. KP has become a leading example of a heath system using their revolutionary patient electronic health record. Kaiser’s also become a model for health reform and the ACO, a leader in improving health services research and translating that to improved outcomes, and a multibillion dollar contributor to community health programs. Much of this is described in George’s books Health Care Will Not Reform Itself and forthcoming Health Care Should Not Bankrupt America. Here George to tells us what we can expect from Kaiser in a world in which its rivals are catching up. This is a keynote speech opening the panel “Employers, Payers and the Great Health 2.0 Awakening”at the 2011 Health 2.0 conference in San Francisco.

Employers, Payers and the Great Health 2.0 Awakening

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.
