So this morning and yesterday afternoon at the Ix Conference I’ve heard some really interesting technology presentations from Silverlink (disclosure Ix and THCB sponsors!) & Eliza, who are both in the voice automated outbound call space. Popped in on Resolution Health, which looks like it’s emerging as a big time competitor to Active Health Management, and saw an interesting lite-weight messaging system for docs to communicate with patients (and vice versa) called CareNav. Then quick look at how Healthways working with Pro-Change Behavioral Systems is really tailoring (that’s the big Ix word this year!) HRAs—although not all Americans have taken one or even know about HRAs!
Molly Mettler (with Don Kemper) the founders of HealthWise have authored a new “gray” paper about the boomers. You can Read the Healthwise Gray Paper here.
Molly gives a fun presentation (and has an endless supply of bad West
Virginia jokes)….and Healthwise is getting into tailored web
Craig Stolz gave an interesting presentation on the tribulations of
being a health care journalist—not that I agreed with too much!
Meanwhile Paul Wallace from Kaiser (Charman of Ix Board) now thinks
that a medical office visit is a defect in care. Think about that…Now
we’re going to show the crowd about Health 2.0….
