Health 2.0 co-founders Matthew Holt and Indu Subaiya gave separate keynote speeches on the second day of Health 2.0’s 7th Annual Conference earlier this month, setting the tone for the remainder of the event.
Holt began by giving an overview of the rapidly changing world of health care and his advice for the viewers in adapting to such changes. He spoke of the comparatively low use of EMRs, the importance of trackers, and sharing data between consumers and professionals as specific challenging trends.

CEO Indu Subaiya followed Holt and addressed the “seven deadly sins of health care,” which ranged from too much testing to end of life care. She compiled this list after an active conversation with eight of her trusted colleagues about the parts of health care which might not be “typically kosher.” Subaiya shifted perspective from specific negativities to look at the health care system in a new way; shining light on potential ways to improve these problems. Subaiya’s keynote left the room with an optimistic view of real problems in the health care system.
