At Health 2.0 in 2008 Alex Drane founded Engage With Grace, a viral movement that encourages people to talk about end of life care. In 2010 she brought us the idea of the “unmentionables” and introduced Elizalife.org’s Ostrich Index. Now we spend every summer arguing about what’s the most unmentionable thing that we should get health and health technology people to talk about–and then Alex leads an amazing crew to talk about it–and show solutions. This year? Vulnerability, caregiving, social support, death, sex, taxes. Drane introduced the session by showing data revolving around these trends and the implications behind them.
With over 20 online challenges and 6 code-a-thon events across the country, 2011 has been the year where the challenge model has brought innovation to health care. Under the rubric of the America COMPETES Act, ONC has contracted with Health 2.0 to run its Investing in Innovation i2 Challenge series. The Health 2.0 Developer Challenge continues with both HHS and private sector challenges. In the video above, see the winners from both the online Challenges and the live code-a-thons. And hear about several brand new challenges being launched with significant prizes.
In the October edition of the Health 2.0 Show, Matthew Holt hosts as we take a whirlwind tour through some of the highlights of the Health 2.0 Fall Conference. Alex Drane covers some of the highlights from our popular “Unmentionables” panel that focused on the less talked about aspects of our lives that lead to poor health like sex, drugs or a crappy boss. Also on this month, Jean-Luc Neptune from Health 2.0 walks us through his work with the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Care Technology on our Developer Challenges.
