Health 2.0 is now over, and it was a great experience. I am not the only person in the room that remarked that they felt less innovative than ever in this room of innovators. The patient experience was front and center. I / we need to see that, often.
The post-lunch surprise was a demo of Microsoft’s HealthVault, accompanied by a post-demo comparison of the HealthVault and Google Health product by Missy Krasner. Overall a great discussion. I’m happy that more, rather than less, is happening here.
From my perspective I thought a big splash was made by the new EHR platform that Jay Parkinson, MD, demonstrated, manufactured by Myca. It has a compelling patient portal aspect as well. Interesting to see what happens when people start from scratch and build things the way they want to use them.
