The advancement and popularity of patient communities online is an international phenomenon. This panel examines communities in different cultures, languages and context, and shows what impact they have on care delivery in different countries-and what the internationalization of information means for patients and doctors.

Discoveries and lessons from the day, and a look ahead to Day 2. And as is traditional at the end of the first day of a Health 2.0 Conference, be ready for a special surprise…but you’ll have to watch to find out what!
At every Health 2.0 Conference we end with a session looking at discoveries made and lessons learned from the conference. For Health 2.0 Europe we’ve convened a caregiver, a physician and international government representative—all with their own unique take on what Health 2.0 means to the future of health care. Here we feature Annabel Bentley (Medical Director, Bupa), Jean Louis Laporte (TribuCancer), and Elettra Ronchi (Coordinator of Health ICT Projects, OECD).
Pieter Vos, Raad voor de Volksgezondheid en Zorg (Council for Public Health and Health Care) NL
Pieter Vos is a psychologist who has been running the Council for health and Care (rVZ) and its
predecessor since 1994. Pieter is a member of several Supervisory boards and Advisory Councils in
healthcare, but we’ve invited him here because his organization has just completed a study into the
future of Health 2.0 in the Netherlands. In health care (and in many other spheres of life)
where the Netherlands leads many countries follow, so we’re excited to hear about their plans.
Morten Elbæk Petersen, Managing Director, sundhed.dk
Morten is an economist by training, who has been has been Managing Director of the National Danish e-health
Portal since May 2002. Denmark has genuinely been leading the way in ehealth adoption across Europe and
the world for more than a decade. It probably has a greater share of its citizens connecting electronically with
their physicians and health records than any other country. We’ve invited Morten here to give us a glimpse of
the future, and to comment on what Health 2.0 might mean in a world where ehealth already works.
