In 2010, with the increased complexity of moving data, technological solutions linking data in different systems while tackling the thorny issues of privacy, identity, and permissions became more important.
This panel displayed some of those leading solutions and the many unplatforms it needs to connect with, including a demonstration of the 2010 Health 2.0 Accelerator Apps Network, which combineed 7 different technologies to solve the problems of care coordination in and outside of the hospital or doctor’s office. (UnPlatforms comprise the next frontier in moving data between web/mobile/ubiquitous internet connected devices).
Virginia Gurley, CEO, AuraViva

Gale Wilson-Steele, Founder & CEO, Health Media Syndicate

It’s a multi-media campaign, but Gale shows us the new iPhone app. Gale’s best known as the founder of Medseek, the hospital eHealth portals services specialists.
Susan Lewis, CEO, Chizam
You’d think that every health club in America would have an online component and a social network. but the connection is pretty rare. Susan started Chizam for health clubs to help (and retain!) members using communities and Health 2.0 tools around exercise, food and scheduling.
Joanne Frederick, President and CEO, Cybercise
After 20 years consulting on public sector healthcare programs, Joanne decided that the way to save our healthcare system was to help people get healthy. So in 2005, she started Cybercise, which started as streaming animated exercise videos. Now Cybercise is a comprehensive wellness solution including a six-month wellness program, Move.Eat.Be., and a supporting social network.
Vinay Gidwaney, CTO and Co-Founder, DailyFeats
With brother (and DailyFeats CEO) Veer, Vinay started Control F-1, a support automation company he sold to CA Technologies. We’re not sure if after that experience he felt his life needed to change, but now they’ve started Pepfly – which sends supportive messages and media based on your moods, and DailyFeats – which gives rewards for doing everyday tasks.
Phaedra S. Chrousos, President and Co-founder, HealthLeap
Having created a Web 2.0 strategy for a big Pharmaco, Phaedra decided that the people who needed her ideas more were consumers trying to book a doctor’s appointment. Healthleap, an easy way to find appointments online, is the result.
Tara Montgomery, Director, Consumer Reports Health
Tara runs ConsumerReportsHealth.org—a paid-subscription site providing information and ratings to help consumers make better health decisions, including which hospitals Dartmouth thinks are best. Recently and controversially Consumer Reports was given sole access to performance data on 1,000 heart surgery teams by The Society of Thoracic Surgeons.
Corey Quinn, Founder, MyTherapistMatch
Corey Quinn was looking for a therapist, couldn’t find one he liked, and realized that pre-screening both patient and therapist would be better for both of them. So he started MyTherapistMatch (and MyCoachMatch) which does just that.
