Health 2.0 Conference Summary – From the Consumer Perspective

September 25, 2007

One of the most articulate summaries of the Health 2.0 conference is by  Amy Tenderich, Blogger/Journalist DiabetesMine. She sees real positive outcomes of this movement, especially for diabetics. She cites Google’s  Missy Krasner as sayingit’s not enough for that company to build safe place for online medical records; people have to be able to DO something with these records.  The records have to be actionable, and as yet, they’re still “a long way from delivering the value that consumers want” in health.”

She also notes the importance of social networks in chronic illness and the essential role of trust.
