Today on Health in 2 Point 00, Jess and I are pregaming HIMSS at WSJ Tech Health. In this episode, Jess asks me about my biggest takeaways from WSJ Tech Health—and what we’re looking forward to at HIMSS. We’ll be at booth #5594 with SMACK.health, along with WTF Health, our new podcast Hardcore Health and ten exciting tech companies including: Tag.bio, BlueStream Health, Happego, Ouchie, SurveyorHealth, Dot.Health, SAFE App, InPharmD, CaptureProof and Visolyr. Get a rundown of them here. We also have a guest question from Katie McGraw from W2O about predictions for big topics at HIMSS. –Matthew Holt
Erick & Linda von Schweber started Surveyor Health around the time Health 2.0 started back in 2007, with the BHAG of massively improving medication safety using some very complex technology. And it has taken them a long time to embed themselves in the bowels of some huge health care organizations and to start getting traction. But it is finally happening and the impact may be substantial. I interviewed Erick and he gave me a comprehensive demo and update on their latest results. If you care about drugs and clinical care, this is compelling (if not lightweight!) viewing. (I suggest you switch to full screen for the demo).
