Ever since Health 2.0 started conferences, we’ve been asked to feature the voice of the patient. For this conference we got out of the way completely and asked Gilles Frydman to find us some great patients and caregivers to talk about their experiences and hopes for innovation. So here’s your opportunity to hear five vocal ePatients who will share their personal journeys and experiences navigating the healthcare system and the world of Health 2.0. We promise you will not be disappointed.
An introduction by the challenge sponsor, Childbirth Connection, and a presentation from the winner, Damien Leri, Big Yellow Star.
J.D. Kleinke and Amy Romano, Childbirth Connection, talk about J.D.’s new book Catching Babies, where the field of OB/GYN serves as a microcosm for debates in the wider healthcare system.
Matthew Holt & Indu Subaiya introduce the agenda for the first day of the Health 2.0 2011 San Diego Spring Fling. Also, all six Fireside Chats: 6 interviewers, 6 interviewees, in conversation on our comfy couches. Each takes a turn asking the questions and then being in the hot seat.
Amy Romano, Childbirth Connection, discusses with Indu Subaiya, Health 2.0, the data and emotion-driven decisions regarding childbirth.
