Health 2.0 is just getting into the mainstream. Other tools and approaches like disease management and patient safety seem to have been held back because they can’t prove the elusive ROI. Others, like EMRs & ACOs and almost any med tech intervention and drug you can think of seem to roll right ahead. Thus, how should we think about the business future and likely impact of the technologies we show on stage? What should we all be saying to the health care system? Patient safety expert and all around witty gadfly Michael Millenson joins Matthew Holt to make some suggestions.
For the seventh installment of the Unmentionables, we made the argument that what used to be taboo may now finally be gaining the attention it deserves…topics like sex, divorce, death of a loved one, a bad boss – everyday new evidence arises that these life factors don’t just influence health – they can define it. With the silver tsunami so too will come new challenges – and opportunities…like the isolating grip of caregiver stress, financial fraud and abuse of seniors, and the opportunity to do death well. If the definition of health needs to be expanded to include life because when life goes wrong, health goes wrong – then maybe the ultimate disease management program would be the one that got you a job. We talked about all that – plus the role empathy can (MUST) have in consumer driven design.
