Nandu may have that classic two years at Goldman Sachs, two years at Harvard Business School pedigree that’s all the rage—but he also was in the Peace Corps, was a TED Fellow, and now with mDhil he’s using SMS scratch cards to create mini-health records in India and elsewhere in the developing world.
Nathan’s an accidental entrepreneur who jointly invented the gyrowheel (a better replacement for training wheels) in engineering class. Now based in India he’s using the ubiquity of SMS to solve an equally galling problem—the high levels of counterfeit drugs in developing countries.
Along with MedPeer colleagues Yo Iwami and Takeru Hiki, Tosh is highly involved in Health 2.0—leading the Tokyo chapter. MedPeer is the leading online physician community in Japan. And yes, early stage discussions about Health 2.0 Japan are in the works. Stay tuned!
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.
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.
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.
