Patients and Online Communities

The advancement and popularity of patient communities online is an international phenomenon. This panel examines communities in different cultures, languages and context, and shows what impact they have on care delivery in different countries-and what the internationalization of information means for patients and doctors.

The Patient is In – Part 1

Are Health 2.0 tools and technologies making a difference for patients and if so, how? We set out in summer 2009 to track some patients as they used Health 2.0 services managing their health and everyday lives. We’ll see them on video, meet three of them on stage and see some of the technologists whose tools they used. Later, we will get commentary from a group of famous ePatients.

The Future of Research – Part 2

The emergence of user-generated content, and the rise of patient involvement in Health 2.0 is radically changing research in both discovery and clinical practice. It’s raising important questions. What is peer review? What is evidence? And what’s appropriate methodology in a world in which data are being generated and released from so many diverse sources so quickly? We’ll be looking across the spectrum from genomics to clinical trial recruiting all the way to clinical research and decisions made by providers and consumers in everyday practice.

The Next Generation of Communities: Data Mining and Discovery Platforms

The Next Generation of Communities

Online social networks in health are changing rapidly. Less than five years ago the transformation from simple bulletin boards and listservs was just underway. Now online communities are becoming robust tracking tools for longitudinal data that can be mined for clinical insights and therapeutic activity. The traditional health care system is beginning to take notice and test the integration of online communities in their programs. How will this evolve in the next few years? Benjamin Heywood (President and Co-Founder, PatientsLikeMe), Gideon Mantel (Co-Founder and Chairman of the Board, First Life Research), and Gilles Frydman (Founder, ACOR) come together in this panel to discuss their predictions.
