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.

    A great concept, by combining technology, data, social networks, communities and providing highly personalized feedback, individuals will feel empowered to change behavior.  The key, gathering data from a private community and providing feedback loops, the community truly becomes intelligent. Great stuff!
