James Madara, MD, the CEO of the American Medical Association returns to Health 2.0. In 2015 he talked about the AMA’s wider role in changing American health care, including its founding of Health2047, its partnership with Matter and its role in SMART. But since then, in a widely quoted speech he’s called digital health the “snake oil of the early 21st century.” So does he love us or hate us? Matthew will interview him in a no-holds-barred discussion of the state of play, the role of tech in doctors’ offices and in our lives, and what the Health 2.0 community needs to do to improve. This should be a good one!
Matthew Holt and Indu Subaiya welcome you to the 10th Annual Health 2.0 Fall Conference with a reflection on how the health tech landscape has evolved over the past ten years and talk about what’s on the horizon.
Matthew will introduce a new way to think about how health care delivery is changing because of technology. Somewhere in this Matthew and Jonathan Bush, CEO, athenahealth, will resume their long running banter!

Generally acknowledged as being one of the funniest and most perceptive speakers in health care, Ian is an internationally known author, consultant and futurist. He was President at Institute for the Future in the 1990s, founded the Strategic Health Perspectives service, and is in more health care board rooms and conference halls that almost anyone. At Health 2.0 Ian will share his latest insights into the future of health care — and yes, he used to be Matthew Holt’s boss and never minded lending out his jokes. Matthew’s still telling them.
Health care organizations are significant changemakers in the health tech space and play a leading role in driving innovation in this field. This award honors those health care organizations that have been recognized by our community as being amongst the most influential in health technology.
Matthew Holt, Co-Chairman, @boltyboy, spent the 1990s learning from the best to be a health care futurist at Institute for the Future, and a survey researcher at Harris Interactive. In the early 2000s he spent time at a PHR start-up, but since he’s been the Founder of (and now occasional author on) The Health Care Blog, and co-founder of the Health 2.0 Conference–roles for which he was mostly self-taught!
