Health 2.0 Co-Founders Matthew Holt and Indu Subaiya warmly welcomed Health 2.0 attendees in London, England with their Top 5 trends in European health care technology innovation. In bringing focus to the rise of self tracking, patient provider system expansion, discussion of historically “unmentionable” health problems, public/private business partnerships, and the future of augmented reality technology, Matthew and Indu set the stage for an exciting and inspiring two day conference.
Indu Subaiya, CEO, and Matthew Holt, Co-Chairman, of Health 2.0 kicked off the 2013 European Conference in London on the morning of Monday, November 18.
Imagine having the ability to offer employees health care support programs that were specifically tailored to what each employee cares about most with regard to their visions and aspirations for a healthier future. Even people with the same conditions commonly have very different expectations for their future health. Real change requires enabling people to connect with what inspires them and framing it in meaningful and straightforward ways to them achieve their health goals.
Health Dialog followed the stories of two people with the same disease but completely different health interests. Through an interactive demonstration you see how implementing a highly personalized health program that rewards individuals for real change on meaningful outcomes that are aligned with their personal goals can reduce medical costs and increase workplace productivity. Get inspired to make broad changes in the health culture of your organization.
CEO of WorldOne Peter Kirk introduced the session with an inspiring video and speech from the session sponsor. The 3 CEOs panel included back to back interviews of CEOs about how their companies are growing within the Health 2.0 world. Matthew Holt conducted a spoof interview with avaricious Brantley Whittington of Extormity. Writer Sara Reistad-Long interviewed Christine Robins previously of BodyMedia and now Jawbone, David Shaywitz of CATCH had a discussion with Doximity CEO Jeff Tangney, and Jane Sarasohn-Kahn of THINK-Health spoke with Peter Hudson of iTriage.
The new health care environment is continually moving into the hands of the individual consumer. The New Environment for Better Health Care Decisions, co-moderated by Indu Subaiya and Matthew Holt, addressed the issues and benefits of the integration of consumer data with clinical experiences. Ryan Beckland from Validic introduced the session as a sponsor. Speakers included Susannah Fox, Tim Kelsey, Neal Sofian, Jamie Heywood, Amy Cueva, David Whitlinger, and Lygeia Ricciardi. Demos exemplifying this shift included Dossia, Fitbit, Mana Health, and HealthifyMe.
Secure adaptable networks are emerging as a critical enabler of healthcare reform. Big Data investments have demonstrated promise, but results are inconclusive and slow in coming. Many believe improvements in cost, quality, and patient experience will require a robust multifunctional network that can help coordinate care across the decentralized, heterogeneous system of payers, agencies, hospitals, labs, specialists, and primary care physicians. This presentation described a vision of the Healthcare Communications Network, built as a software platform, with multiple communications modalities ranging from real-time intervention to messaging to secure data file transfers. NaviNet, already operating a nationwide communications network, is expanding its offering to become such a platform.
