Increasingly digital tools are engaging and interacting with our health in new ways. This breakout focused on how these interfaces provide health care in new ways -whether it be via telemedicine, digital health coaching, educational content, or care delivery.
This breakout brought together 5 companies focused on ending the isolation so often experienced alongside an illness. Through the development of online communities, patients can access new support groups, educational resources, and advice that was never available to them before. In an age of online communities that boost your ego, Health 2.0 is excited to present the online communities that can boost your health and wellness.
Ron Gutman has been fascinated with wellness, health and behavior change since before founding Well- sphere which he sold to HealthCentral in 2009. Last year we let him have fun telling us his Unmentionable theory of how to help people change their behavior, but this year it’s down to business. And that business is HealthTap–a community that combines a new way of helping consumers access personalized health information while helping a network of physicians deliver it. It wasn’t quite ready to be launched at our Spring Fling, but already HealthTap is in its second iteration and is spreading fast amongst consumers and clinicians.
