Wow, today is the 50th Episode of Health in 2 Point 00. On today’s episode, we have something special for you: an Epic Guest Takeover at the Health 2.0 Conference from the “intellectual capital” (as Jessica puts it) that exists today in health care & health tech. Guest Starring Rasu Shrestha, UPMC; Daniel Kraft, Singularity University; Kyra Bobinet, engagedIN; Eugene Borukhovich, Bayer. I may or may not have given my two cents in the 2 minutes–Matthew Holt
Yup, more blowing the trumpet about Health 2.0! We’re celebrating our 10th conference in 2 weeks and over the summer we’ve been looking back at the people and organizations who’ve made a mark in health tech, digital health, Health 2.0, or whatever you want to call it. For ten years Health 2.0 has showcased and connected with thousands of technologies, companies, innovative thought leaders, and patient activists through our many events and conferences, challenges, code-a-thons, market research, blog posts, pilot programs and general industry promotion. Since our first conference in 2007, Health 2.0 has grown into a global movement and community of over 100,000 entrepreneurs, developers, and health care stakeholders, and 110+ chapters on six continents
As we prepare to usher in the 10th year of Health 2.0, we want to take this opportunity to reflect on and recognize the accomplishments of this powerful community and movement. To do this, we asked our community to nominate the top influencers from the world of Health 2.0. Over the summer thousands of people voted and now the finalists are showcased on Health 2.0’s 10 Year Global Retrospective Awards for all to see. It’s time to vote for the finalists, and the winners will be celebrated at Health 2.0’s 10th Annual Fall Conference on September 25-8 in Santa Clara, California.
Please go take a look at the finalists and vote for your favorites!
Moore’s Law is coming to medicine. And it will look and feel a lot like Uber: with rich technology underpinning, consumer-service oriented and friendly, and shaking up the professionals at the front line of the business (from taxi drivers to physicians).
Eric Topol, physician and editor-in-chief at Medscape, told a standing-room-only audience at the kickoff of the 8th annual Health 2.0 Conference that the democratization of health care is coming based on consumers’ use of eight drivers: sensors, labs, imaging, physical exams, access to medical records, transparency of costs, and digital pills.
