Health 2.0 Casting Call

Media2_3We are excited to announce a new panel format at our Spring conference, “Connecting Consumers and Providers” in San Diego on March 3-4, 2008. In addition to spotlighting demos and reactions from industry experts, we will be capturing the user-experience of people living with health conditions as they use Health 2.0 technologies in their everyday lives.

Has the web changed your life? Does it help you deal with the isolation of a condition or improve your quality of life in some other way? We are looking for a few good consumers/patients to feature live on stage or in a video segment. Our roving video crew will be traveling the country to document interesting real-life stories showing how Health 2.0 impacts both people and the healthcare system.

User-generated content

And for those of you budding videographers, we are also accepting user-generated video clips that show how you are using Health 2.0 technologies in your daily life. Maybe it’s an active online community where you’ve found support, a portable medical device, an online tracking tool, a blog, a video game, a virtual world, or some combination of the above. If you have something to say, we’d love to hear about it so we can help you share your stories with your peers and other members of the Health 2.0 community. We welcome you to join the conversation with some of the most progressive minds in healthcare including consumers, health providers, technologists and entrepreneurs. If you are a physician using health 2.0 technologies to connect with your patients or if you know of patients for whom technology has made a real difference, please drop us a line.

Let me also say that one thing that would help that could be done right away is looking at who and how medical tech/clerks/office people are hired.

Not enough emphasis is given to the enormous befit to our national productivity that would come from relieving our employers from the burden of providing health benefits to employees.

Check out both commentary/story and film clip: http://youtube.com/watch?v=9lxNdbQhRfY ———- ON THE TOPIC OF MEDICAL TECHNOLOGY and NEW TOOLS/2.0, et al I worked for years not only for health insurance companies but I also worked in medical technology – most notably working on the earliest attempts at creating an electronic medical record accessible by both patients and care providers (EDS, Medicus, and others). I have too much to say on this for typed-in words but I will say this – part of the problem in developing effective tools as such is that healthcare professionals tend to (I’m just sayin’… I’m just… Read more »

How dare the medical community call their product “healthcare.” Certainly, there are exceptions, but exceptions don’t change the rule: The common person’s encounter with medicine is neither satisfying nor satisfactory. The best we can hope for is medical treatment — followed by a persistent flood of confusing and repetitive bills from every single person and agency involved. The profession has corrupted itself at the expensive of this great country and her great people.

I would like someone to get to the bottom of our CORRUPT healthcare (or lack thereof) system in this country. I, for one, at 58 years of age, am at the point of making the choice NOT TO EVER SUBJECT “MY MIND” TO THE AFTERMATH OF BEING TAKEN CARE OF IN AN EMERGENCY ROOM IN THIS COUNTRY EVERY AGAIN – EVEN IF IT MEANS I THINK I’M HAVING A HEART ATTACK AND GOING TO DIE- THAT’S HOW FURIOUS I AM. I just got the BCBS statements reflecting what Southcrest Hospital has billed them for my recent ER visit and my… Read more »

I was researching this whole communication in the medical field this week and found that HIPAA is really limiting what can be done and used for communication in the medical field. I also found a site that allows physicians, medical professionals, as well as patients to communicate in a HIPAA compliant portal. The site was imedicor.com and i just wanted to see if anyone else has seen this site. It looks great and very useful.
