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.
Bart Foster, Founder & CEO, SoloHealth
Bart has a background of being entrepreneurial with big companies (Novartis, Kellogs), but SoloHealth is a start-up on a mission to put thousands of its self-service networked diagnostic units in retail stores across America. You can check (and get educated about) your weight, vision, blood pressure and more. Is this a glimpse into the future of automated routine primary care? Here Bart shows us SoloHealth for the first time.
