As consumers, we compare and research before we make big decisions for just about everything – from groceries to cars. Yet when it is time to go to the doctor, we accept the price tag and the attending physician with little question! This breakout showcased the companies that will aid in you in not only finding the right doctor, but also the right price.
Michael Millenson, President of Health Quality Advisors, moderates this eclectic panel of physician search tools.
Jeff Cutler, Executive VP and General Manager of Vitals, demos their updated site. Vitals is a tool for patients to find, connect and prepare for their doctors appointments. Explore a physician’s patient ratings, credentials, video profiles and more!
Mitch Rothschild, CEO, Vitals
After a career in direct marketing, Mitch started Vitals, which combines information about physicians from many sources. It has been a top destination for physician search and rating for several years, having first been at Health 2.0 in 2008. Since then, Vitals has moved to the next level by allowing physicians to add their own information and by building multiple partnerships which helps physicians and patients from other sites and vice-versa. Mitch shared about some of their current partnerships and work.
We brought back our popular Fireside Chat session from the 2011 San Diego Spring Fling! Each discussion is linked to the next. You’ll get 15 minute bursts of thought provoking, and possibly controversial conversations!

They will all be discussing profile management for physicians, as well as the online education of physicians, and how their respective companies participate in these topics.
Jeff Cutler shows us Vitals, a doctor review and rating site that aids both consumers in finding doctors, and doctors in receiving feedback. Consumers can locate physicians based on specific expertise, past experiences, user reviews, and location.
Jeff Cutler, EVP, Vitals
Vitals combines information about physicians from many sources, and helped by a $4m venture round in late 2008, has emerged as a top destination for physician search and rating. Jeff’s now leading Vitals to the next level by allowing physicians to add their own information, and building multiple partnerships which help physicians and patients from other sites (and vice-versa).
Health 2.0 is not just about technology. In this panel we will be showing the latest advances in Health 2.0 tools for clinicians–and how they’re working together–and we’ll also be looking at examples of programs that have incorporated Health 2.0 technology into clinical and business operations. What results have they shown and how have those partnerships begun to reform care delivery?
