Health 2.0 on RWW Live

Earlier today, RWW held a call on Health 2.0. If you’re interested in what some bright entrepreneurs are doing with healthcare technologies and social media, you definitely should check out RWW’s live call.

In this video I discuss some thoughts on the topic, with special emphasis placed on two key ingredients for a successful transition to a remarkable healthcare system:

  1. Healthcare enterprises will need to develop strategies which move it from the framework established of the 20th century (based on mass communication) to the 21st centuary (which increasingly is based on mass connection)
  2. The tools are important, but only if the healthcare industry understands the the human implications of technological adoption.

What do you think? What technologies do you think are critical in improving healthcare? What kinds of social media make the most sense across the board for healthcare?
