Are Health 2.0 tools and technologies making a difference for patients and if so, how? We set out in the summer of 2009 to track some patients as they used Health 2.0 services managing their health and everyday lives. We’ll see them on video, meet three of them on stage and see some of the technologists whose tools they used. Later, we will get commentary from a group of famous ePatients.
Speakers on this panel include Adam Lee, Chris Ohman, Daniel Kogan, Fred Goldstein, Ingrid Lindberg, Jerry Reeves, Karl Ulfers, Mohan Nair, and Nathan A. Moracco. Coming together to discuss money in the health care system, the diversity of the panel brings a wide range of medical management perspectives.
Moderated by Ron Dixon from Partners Healthcare, this panel includes the physicians Amy Berlin, Stephen Sigal, and Will Sellman. Speaking together, these doctors discuss how to incorporate Health 2.0 platforms into the medical world.
