I am excited to be part of the Health 2.0 phenomenon and I am eagerly awaiting this unique conference in Boston on April 22-23rd at the Boston Park Plaza Hotel.
I will be conducting a radio and on-camera interviews with some of the guests and I’m thrilled I’ll be able to bring them to you.
The theme of the conference is “The Great Debates on the Next Generation of U.S. Healthcare.”
“Health 2.0 Conference and the Center for Information Therapy (Ix®) are delighted to announce their first joint conference. The two organizations have been discussing the tensions and synergies between Information Therapy and Health 2.0. And they’ve been looking for a way to collaborate and integrate all the hundreds of ideas about the role of patients in the transformation of health care. So it makes great sense to put the two organizations together for one great conference.”
Josh Seidman, President, Center for Information Therapy, Indu Subaiya & Matthew Holt, Co-Founders, Health 2.0 kicks off the conference on the 22nd.
“There’ll be a stellar line-up of cutting-edge demos, compelling speakers and lots of surprises. Confirmed speakers include Don Kemper (Healthwise), John Halamka (Beth Israel), Rob Kolodner (ONC), Dan Hoch (BrainTalk), Esther Dyson (EDVenture), Paul Wallace (Kaiser Permanente), Jamie Heywood (PatientsLikeMe), and many, many more. In addition Health Affairs Editor and America’s leading health care journalist Susan Dentzer will moderate a debate about the future of incentives for Health 2.0 and Information Therapy.”
