Patients 2.0: Medstartr

Attempting to crowdfund his own health tech startup, FairCareMD.com, Alex found that no platform supported health related projects. Never one to sit back and ignore a problem, he and co-founder Mike Pence (ex Kickstarter) created MedStartr.com, the first crowdfunding platform designed for healthcare. Oh and Alex runs the Health 2.0 NYC chapter in his spare time.

Patient 2.0: The Patient Shark Tank

Patient communities are emerging as key influencers and disrupting the healthcare landscape. They are impacting strategies, policies, and setting the stage for new patient-centric innovations. Patients are now sought after thought leaders influencing the way healthcare systems think about and interact with patients and prodding them to improve the patient experience. Join us as ePatient judges rate new technology exclusively from the patient perspective and innovators build the perspective of patients into the innovations designed to serve them.The ultimate goal is to incorporate the voice of patient into the design, development or enhancement of technology being developed by the healthcare community and move away from the notion: “If you build it they will come”. As each innovator pitches their concept or technology, our patient panelists will ask targeted questions based on their experiences to understand how the innovation uniquely responds to patient needs and how it will reach patients. Patient panelists will score the technology based on the following categories:
- How well does it define and solve a problem?
- Patient User Experience
- Data Handling
- Patient-Centricity/Involvement
- Engagement/retention – Is the patient going to be motivated to use this product/service? How sustainable is this solution?
- Connectivity to other systems and/or healthcare team

Interview with Alex Fair

We talked with Alex Fair, CEO at FairCareMD, about the biggest challenges, trends and developments in health care technology at the Health 2.0 San Francisco 2011 Fall Conference.

FairCareMD – Comparison Shopping for Health Care

Alex Fair, CEO, FairCareMD

When Alex tried to get a fair price for check-ups for his kids with no insurance, he found he was being charged five times as much as his old insurance company. So he designed and built FairCareMD, an online automated Direct Provider Access platform that lets patients comparison shop, negotiate, and contract for care. Alex has also recently taken over the NY Health 2.0 Chapter. And, yes, that is his real name.

The Next Generation of Provider Search

Technology is creating a whole new ability for consumers to be picky about their healthcare providers. Here a collection of panelists showcase their products and companies that seek to create a better connection between patients and doctors from the start. Panelists include Eric Peacock (GM, Insider Pages), Alex Fair (CEO, FairCareMD), Corey Quinn, (Founder at MyTherapistMatch), Tara Montgomery (Director, Consumer Reports Health), and Phaedra S. Chrousos (President and Co-founder, HealthLeap)

FairCareMD – Health Online Patient Experience

Alex Fair, CEO, FairCareMD

Alex remembers the day he took FairCareMD live–it was at our DC conference in 2010. Since then he’s both been running the wildly successful NYC Health 2.0 Chapter but has also taken FairCareMD up a couple of notches as Provider Access platform that allows direct pricing and contracting. Here Alex demonstrates the next evolution–an alliance FairCareMD is making with several other services. This demo was given during the “Doctors Like Me: Provider Search for Consumers” panel at the San Francisco Health 2.0 conference in 2011.
