Legendary analyst Esther Dyson in conversation with Anmol Madan & Jim Kean, two leaders of breakthrough Health 2.0 companies that each use data in very novel ways.
Lori Taylor moderates this panel on programs and tools that employers can use to promote and evaluate different aspects of employee health.
Jim Kean, CEO and Co-Founder of WellnessFX, demos their web-based service that combines direct-to-consumer access to advanced blood tests, phone-based consultations with progressive health practitioners, and intuitive online data tracking. If multiple employees of a company use WelllnessFX, within a month they can show how biologically healthy your workforce is.
We talked with Jim Kean, CEO at WellnessFX, about the biggest challenges, trends and developments in health care technology at the Health 2.0 San Francisco 2011 Fall Conference.
In the 1990s Jim Kean’s Sapient Health Networks was one of the first acquisitions for WebMD. Jim’s big bet is that the future of health is personalized testing and treatment, WellnessFX will bring that to the masses.
