How Broad is Health 2.0?

December 12, 2007

In an article from Modern Healthcare, Matthew Holt and others are quoted on Health 2.0. Along the lines of Wireless Healthcare, Holt sees “medical care is an ongoing process rather than a series of episodic events.” He sees the patient-physician relationship as more of a team enabled by Web 2.0 technologies.

Scott Shreeve of Crossover Health takes a wider view as Health 2.0 addressing the crisis in health care today – “Health 2.0 has everything to do with outcomes, quality and healthcare reform.”

Health 2.0 has many facets and substantial potential for making changes in health care. Will it require market consolidation to have a real impact on healthcare reform? Or is it current volatile state how it will continue to manifest itself and still have an impact?
