In 2010, with the increased complexity of moving data, technological solutions linking data in different systems while tackling the thorny issues of privacy, identity, and permissions became more important.
This panel displayed some of those leading solutions and the many unplatforms it needs to connect with, including a demonstration of the 2010 Health 2.0 Accelerator Apps Network, which combineed 7 different technologies to solve the problems of care coordination in and outside of the hospital or doctor’s office. (UnPlatforms comprise the next frontier in moving data between web/mobile/ubiquitous internet connected devices).
3 CEOs from companies transforming, and being transformed by Health 2.0, in conversations about the future of their businesses. Jeff Arnold (CEO, Sharecar) is interviewed by Elizabeth Coen from CNN, Giovanni Colella (CEO, Castlight Health), is interviewed by Claire Cain Miller from the NYTimes, and John de Souza (CEO, MedHelp) is interviewed by Jane Sarasohn-Kahn from Health Populi .
Funding models for health IT are changing. Incentive systems in mainstream health care may be too—but perhaps not fast enough. Listen to what several veteran technology entrepreneurs and VCs say about what’s needed for new opportunities and hear feedback from a new breed of “investors” as well. Panelists include Don Casey (CEO, West Wireless Health Institute), Esther Dyson (Chairman, EDventure Holdings), Lisa Suennen (Managing Member, Psilos Group), Mitchell Kapor (Founder, Kapor Capital), and Bryan Roberts (Managing General Partner, Venrock Associate).
Come to Spring Fling: Matchpoint Boston (May 14-15) to learn about how incubators and investors are challenging traditional investment models in health IT.

Susan Lewis, CEO, Chizam

With brother (and DailyFeats CEO) Veer, Vinay started Control F-1, a support automation company he sold to CA Technologies.
