Cleveland Clinic and Medicine 2.0

September 4, 2008

Here at the Medicine 2.0 Conference, I have been asked how the Cleveland Clinic is using Web 2.0. Some examples are in my slides on slideshare.net. But here isĀ  a list with links:

  1. AskDrWiki.com – started by two cardiology fellows, not officially sanctioned
  2. Clinical Case and Images blog – begun by a hospitalist who has moved on from the Clinic
  3. Google Health – Cleveland Clinic was the pilot site and one of the first partners
  4. Walk for Good- a Google Gadget
  5. CEO blog – as an internal communication tool only
  6. Other un-official blogs like mine
  7. Use of Sharepoint for collaboration – it can be debated whether SharePoint is Web 2.0 since it is not open source but it is widely used and encourages collaboration.

I will add more examples from time-to-time.

Arrived in Toronto – Medicine 2.0 proceedings available

September 4, 2008

After a walking tour of one of the great world cities, I am gearing up for Medicine 2.0 Congress. The proceedings are already available on the conference website. It’s a nice mix of patient-focused Web 2.0, one of the few places to hear research done in this space and discussion of uses of Web 2.0 in medical education and research.

In addition, the international representation is unique including presenters from Australia, Singapore, Eastern and Western Europe, USA and Canada.

Medicine 2.0 has certainly seen adoption from around the world. I am particularly looking forward to presentations on PatientsLikeMe.com and medical education/research topics.

More postings during and after the conference.
