Health 2.0 as a Verb

October 4, 2007

Jane Sarasohn-Kahn writes in her column in iHealthbeat, that “Health 2.0:It’s Not a Noun, Its a Verb, a Movement.” It was good to meet Jane in person at the Health 2.0 conference after reading her columns regularly. She asks Why the interest now? The answer is not one single factor:

  • consumers are searching online for health information
  • they are building communities online
  • there is a demand for transparency
  • customers are comfortable with IT and embracing Web 2.0
  • learning from health 1.0 (ordinary content websites) and the ability to rapidly and cheaply develop new applications.

Maybe this is something more than a passing  trend with this kind of convergence going on.
