More on Web 2.0 in Health Care

February 22, 2007

In a post from December on Connected For Health Discussion Forum, Sally Lakeman from Australia asks some provocative questions:

  • “Using social networking tools, is it possible for us to deliver health solutions that encourage the patient to actively participate in an online environment?
  • Can we create an online space where people can not only manage their conditions but are encouraged to create, participate and collaborate in driving online health applications?”

Some interesting comments follow including an emphasis on the need for secure data exchange (from Web 2.0 technologies?) and the fact that these technologies will consume us in the health care professions rather than us consuming them.

Still more questions and hypotheses than answers.
