Big Data Meets Real [time] People: MedHelp

MedHelp is a web-based online health community that has big user numbers, big name partners and lots of organic growth with no bought traffic. In recent years they’ve included trackers for multiple conditions and now have over 4 million people contributing data from them. Khaled will show us a great visualization of the data collected from their initial results.

Big Data Meets Real [time] People: Session 2

The advent of a new analytics for real-time data streams begs the question of how self tracking and sensor data integrate with the wider clinical evidence base and the implications for managing population health.

MedHelp – An Evolving Online Community

Khaled Hassounah, Chief Technology Officer, MedHelp – User-Generated Health
MedHelp’s communities and Q&A forums have been a serious player for years on the Comscore ranking, and it is an iconic example of online community evolution. Over the years they’ve added several tracking apps, and in this demonstration Khaled’s shows us MedHelp’s next evolution – into a combination of community with Data Utility Layer. While you’ll guess correctly that Khaled is a techie with a long and varied background, you may not know that he was director of the One Laptop per Child project in the Middle East and Africa. This demo was part of a panel at the 2011 Health 2.0 conference in San Francisco.

User-Generated Health: From Intelligent Communities to Self-Tracking, and the Quest for Personalized Health Platforms

Communities are evolving from simple support mechanisms to becoming personalized platforms for disease management, behavior change and data analytics. We took a look at the themes of peer and professional support, self-tracking, information sharing and delivery, competition, real-time data streams, and carrot vs. stick – and saw the Health 2.0 tools and unplatforms that are driving consumer engagement and testing leading behavior change models to make the greatest real-world impact.
