Ira Cohen, Senior Director, SanDisk
SanDisk has developed a secure portable device in the form of a USB drive, which provides seamless links amidst the provider’s different data sources. In this demo SanDisk will show the device’s out-of-the-box usability, as well as demonstrating some of the features of the personal health record application.
Brian’s a long time industry analyst and Health 2.0 observer who’s more than dabbled in health reform for many years. Now he’s directly involved in real delivery restructuring with WeCare clinics. Will is an insurance broker who introduced the clinic concept to Transport Workers Local #526. Together they’re going to show the kind of physical and technology changes that can make a big difference in improving outcomes and reducing costs.
Based in Fort Worth, Texas, Cook Children’s combines a nationally recognized medical center, with more than 35 pediatric physicians offices, hundreds of employed providers, plus home health and more. When Ryan wanted to improve children’s health in Texas—quickly and at a relatively low cost compared to many EMR solutions—he turned to athenahealth and Microsoft Healthvault. In this case study Ryan, with Ed Park, athenahealth’s tech guru (and yes, Todd’s brother), will tell us how moving to a SaaS-based platform has changed the way physicians practice at Cook, and how next they’re going to be making care more accessible to kids everywhere.
Ryan Howard, CEO, Practice Fusion
It’s tough to remember the doubt that greeted Ryan four years ago when he announced that Practice Fusion would offer a free ad-supported SaaS-based EMR. With backing from Salesforce.com and a partnership with Dell, they’re now at 40,000+ users, and have just opened their API to other developers—including in a very successful challenge to the Health 2.0 community. You’ll see some of that integration in this session. No-one’s laughing any more, except Ryan and his team!
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).
Michael Nusimow, CEO, DrChrono
In 2009 DrChrono showed us their SaaS-based physician practice management system. In 2010 Michael, Daniel and team have added one of the first native iPad clinical EMR apps. Here they’re building integrations with Vitals, Remedy and more, some of which you’ll see for the first time in this demonstration. Not bad progress so far for a couple of geeks who started DrChrono because they missed a doctor’s appointment!
Matt Wiggins, CEO, Remedy Systems
Matt runs an iPhone developer shop, with a mobile platform that’s also a “napkin-stage” investor. But he’s speaking here with us at Health 2.0 both because Remedy’s point of care app was a Launch! winner last year, and because it’s being used by DrChrono as an eRX module in their EMR. Leveraging existing mobile applications, Remedy seeks to customize mobile apps for the healthcare community.
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?
Chiara Bell, Chairman, Univita
Ben Lytle has quite a resume – he’s the ex-CEO of Anthem, he built and sold Axia to Healthways, and now he’s created a comprehensive system of services for caring for the elderly. Chiara Bell (who you may remember demoing Enurgi at Health 2.0 in 2008, after which Univita bought it) will show you the online assessment and care plan component of Univita.
