Interview at #epatcon: Connecting Patients with Physicians, EMRs and EHRs

I attended ePatient10 this week in Philadelphia and got the chance to meet some wonderful people interested in improving patient-provider relations, healthcare communication and the adoption and employment of emerging technologies in healthcare.

One of the questions I raised had to do with getting physicians involved in the growing discussions about these plays for importance. It’s my view that physician involvement can be a sort of limiting agent, and that rather than “taking on” physicians, they aught to be approached from where they are coming from so that they can better understand why it’s important to listen.

The video of my summary of the question is over here: pixelsandpills:

Digital Pharma West in San Francisco

I’m heading out to San Francisco where I’m co-producing Digital Pharma West where I’ll be on a panel to discuss, among other things, Pharma’s integration of emerging technologies. I’m excited because I get to meet a lot of brilliant people interested in taking the lead in forging new paths for the industry.

There’s still time to register for the event and get a chance to network with a lot of talented people. Here’s the attendee list:

I’ll write more about the event as it approaches and blog while there as much as possible. You can follow the hashtag for the even on Twitter: #DigiPharm.

I hope to see you in San Francisco!
