In an age of extensive medical exploration and testing, the number of clinical trials and ongoing research projects have shot through the laboratory roof! Yet this wealth of information has been ineffectively distributed, going unseen in by colleagues and unused by potential patients. This breakout demonstrates how a handful of creative minds are making the clinical data and medical trials of today easily accessible for the medical enhancement of tomorrow.
Roni Zeiger is the former Chief Health Strategist at Google, where he led efforts ranging from Google Flu Trends to Symptom Search. In 2012, he and Gilles Frydman founded Smart Patients, a company which serves as an extensive database of clinical trials. The online community leverages patient knowledge sharing to accelerate the era of precision medicine.
From EHRs to consumer apps, Roni Zeiger discusses how love of data can distract us from solving real problems.
We talked with Roni Zeiger, Chief Health Strategist at Google, about the biggest challenges, trends and developments in health care technology at the Health 2.0 San Francisco 2011 Fall Conference.
The Consumer Aggregators are back – Hear the latest from WebMD, Google Health and Microsoft as they discuss their systems for empowering consumers to manage and keep track of their personal health.
Conversations with patients are becoming more complex – employing tools to help educate patients, connect them with doctors, and treat issues before they become serious. Web Live Care enables patients to participate in live video chats with doctors, after which they’ll receive a full transcript of the conversation and follow-up instructions.

Launched after much anticipation in 2008, Google Health has been steadily adding features and partners as it becomes a platform which helps consumers both store and collect their medical data, and use services related to it. Roni, an internal medicine physician, has been at Google Health since the start but he still finds time to occasionally practice urgent care medicine and present at almost every Health 2.0 Conference.
In the last year the complexity of moving data has increased, but technological solutions linking data in different systems, while tackling the thorny issues of privacy, identity and permissions, are becoming more important. This panel will show some of those leading solutions, and the many unplatforms they need to connect with. (UnPlatforms comprise the next frontier in moving data between web/mobile/ubiquitous internet connected devices).

Is search content? Is search data? Let Roni show you how it can be both as he demos Google Correlates, a new Google project that takes any data over time and finds the search queries that most conform to the trends of the original data source during the same time frame. Additionally, Taha A. Kass-Hout from the CDC introduces us to their Biosense Correlate program and some practical uses of correlation data.
