David Kibbe – Health 2.0 is part of the American Academy of Family Physicians’ future. Things are changing too fast for many physicians in the country. Half of family practitioners use EMRs to automate existing office procedures. Going forward we need to think about three things:
– We need to change the reimbursement system. – We need to share clinical decision support to save money. – Steve Brown – Health search is much more valuable when there is more patient data. The majors are positioned to create a new health data ecosystem comprised of interconnected health records surrounded by transparency and decision support tools.
Lee Shapiro – EMRs are being used as a substitute for the paper charts. But, as with home accounting software, they become transformative when connectivity is added.
Jay Silverstein – All the imagination and creativity in building community can begin to eliminating the randomness in health. But I also saw a lot of people coming up with visions and tools that are fragmented, that take advantage of significant dollar expenditures, but that are not focused on removing unnecessary services from the system while improving care for the mainstream.
Esther Dyson – We’ve heard today only from the Health 2.0 community, something like the mobile phone system, which just appeared but is only snipping away at the edges without being truly disruptive of the calcified problems that are weighting us down.
