Alberto Sanna, Director, eServices for Life & Heath, Institute Health San Raffaele
Alberto has been involved in health care re-engineering projects at the Scientific Institute San Raffaele in Milano since 1989 but since 2002 he’s been director of the eServices for Life and Health Unit. His research is at the three main verticals: Smart Hospitals, Smart Life, and Smart City; and one horizontal: Privacy, Safety & Security. He is also the author of edutainment video games and has several patents & trademarks. He shows us about how to make an impact regarding nutrition, exercise and health literacy.
The central challenge of implementing Health 2.0 lies in creating a sustainable economic business model. Several things lie mostly hidden in the background: the underlying infrastructure, transforming processes into functionality, the technological networking of the business ecosystem, the “electronification” of the business model. The risk is that the technical implementation will be perceived as “trivial” or, conversely, that preoccupation with technological details result in losing sight of the business model. This presentation explains why it makes sense to entrust the technological implementation of Health 2.0 business models to external specialists like ICW using specific Health 2.0 tools. They are eHealth domain experts with a strong back end focus. The eHealth Platform is specially suited to satisfy the data, privacy and SLA requirements of Health 2.0 applications.
In this presentation, they will show how to leverage our knowledge and services to keep your business functioning optimally without having to worry about technical details.
Live demos of debuting technologies that will shape the future of healthcare.
Cédric Hutchings, CEO, Withings
Withings has taken the device world by storm, with the integration of their Wi-Fi Scale and Blood Pressure Monitor Cuff into most of the major data utility layers. At Health 2.0 Europe 2011 for the first time Withings will reveal their new baby monitor – which will be getting a lot of use from Health 2.0 employees!
Anatole Menon-Johansson, Director, SXT Health CIC

Anatole is the clinical lead for Sexual Health at Guy’s & St Thomas’ Hospital and Clinical Director for the sex information charity Brook.

Matt Berry, CEO, Orca Health
Orca Health has been stealthily releasing visually beautiful iPad patient education apps over the past few months, but this is the first time you’ll see them at any conference. Watch out for the simulation of cataracts and macular degeneration! We were going to tell you that CEO Matt Berry played quarterback at BYU and make comparisons to Steve Young, but then we realized that no one in Europe knows what that means.
Chris Kula-Przezwanksi, Founder/President, MediGuard
MediGuard (which has changed its name from iGuard) may be the biggest Health 2.0 membership site of all. Launched in 2007 as a spin-off of Quintiles, where Hugo was a senior executive, iGuard now has in excess of 2 million members in the US and another 100K plus in the UK. They’re getting information about interactions and recalls, being involved in frequent studies and are also being recruited for clinical trials. Hugo is a frequent visitor to the US but has been living in Paris. He’s moving back to his native Australia very soon. Ready for Health 2.0 Australia perhaps?
Pablo Graiver, CEO, Trialreach
The UK-based clinical trial recruiting site TrialReach launched at Health 2.0 San Francisco 2009 and Pablo is back to tell us how the experiment has been working out. TrialReach has social features and faceted search by condition or current medications.
