Future Technologies for Family Caregiving Pt. 2

Millions of Americans are involved in providing care for family members or friends, and they represent a vital but often overlooked component of the health care system. To date technology has played a relatively minor role in supporting their activities, but that may change in the near future. This workshop built on the findings of a recent expert roundtable on family caregiving & technology. Participants learned about powerful new technologies for tracking and managing health, and engaged in an interactive exercise to design future technology-based solutions.

A panel discussion of the emerging research practices and findings that can inform Health 2.0 innovations. Some topics to be addressed: How can research work with companies to enhance health outcomes and business success? What do companies see as advantages and challenges to working with researchers and research data when developing and bringing innovations to market? What can be learned from innovation cycles and phases that can inform Health 2.0 development?

RWJF demonstration at the HDI Forum in Bethesda, Maryland, June 2011.

How are We Going to Make a Difference?

For more than a day the discussion has been about how health care can be cheaper, how Health 2.0 can advance research, and what to do about our national (and international crisis) with lifestyle induced disease. In the final session, some key players will discuss their vision for the future of health care, and the role Health 2.0 will play.
