Health 2.0 Fall Agenda Announced, Oct 7-8
Guest Post by Matthew Holt
This week we’ve announced the line up (or the first chunk of it) for the 4th annual Health 2.0 Conference in San Francisco Oct 7-8. The conference is the climax of Health Innovation Week — a week long series of conferences, meetings, and events highlighting innovation in health care information technology.
Health 2.0 will focus on Search & Content, Communities, the Data Utility Layer, Tools and Unplatforms, case studies of Health 2.0-enhanced delivery reform, and the wider (and unmentionable) context for behavior change. There’s also going to be a whole session with some of the biggest names in technology investing (Brian Roberts from Venrock, Esther Dyson, Mitch Kapor, Lisa Suennen from Psilos, Don Casey from West Wireless Health Institute) discussing new models, and the climax of the Health 2.0 Developer Challenge with Federal CTO Aneesh Chopra and HHS CTO Todd Park handing out the prizes!
You want great keynotes? How about Godfather of Web 2.0 Tim O’Reilly and leading health care futurist Jeff Goldsmith back to back and talking to each other! You want the latest technology demos? We’ll have around 80 handpicked companies showing you the best most innovative technology in our rapid-fire 4 minute format? And tons more in the Exhibit Hall, and the best brand new companies on Launch!
You want to see some incredible new sites and services? At least two major (as in big and very well funded) new Health 2.0 initiatives will be introduced at Health 2.0 but you’ll have to wait a bit for those details.
And then you’ll hear the latest in technology and commentary from the CEOs and senior leaders of Everyday Health, Healthline, HealthCentral, PatientsLikeMe, ACOR, Microsoft, WebMD, Google, Kosmix/RightHealth, Kaiser Permanente and many, many more, The Health 2.0 Accelerator members will show the latest iteration of their incredible work on modular applications for consumer health. Resilient Network Systems will show you how a coalition of partners are moving health data over the Web in whole new ways. And we’ll have the latest in consumer Wellness 2.0, Health 2.0 in the Doctor’s Office, Health 2.0 Around the World and much much more.
There’s only one place to be this Fall. For more information and to sign up see the Health2Con site. And we’ll be announcing many more speakers and sessions in the coming weeks. Stay tuned!
