HealthCamp is an "un-conference" event with interest in the transformational potential afforded by emerging Social Networks, Open Standards and the latest web and mobile technologies to facilitate needed change in the healthcare financing and delivery space. The HealthCamp series is a growing, grassroots phenomenon, emerging from the ad hoc gathering known as "Barcamp". Events are being held, or planned, across the country as well as internationally, as part of the "Health 2.0" movement towards participatory (i.e, consumer driven) healthcare - where patients, members or consumers, take an active and informed role in their care in conjunction with their physician, hospital, ancillary or allied health practitioner, etc.

Call-in Number: (718) 506-1723Join Mark Scrimshire, aka @ekivemark, and Gregg Masters, aka @2healthguru, for a conversation on the emerging 'HealthCamp phenom', and plans underway for un-conferences scheduled in the US and beyond. HealthCamp is about putting social media, open source and the best of the Internet, Mobile web and process innovation to work for better health care and health technology. HealthCamp is a user-organized "un--conference" movement that brings consumers, health providers, health industry experts and technology professionals together for a one day event to exchange ideas informally, locally, openly. Participants themselves provide the content, with break-out sessions they develop themselves and plug into a schedule grid on the day of the event. Anyone can present and host a session in nearly any format. For more information: http://www.socialtext.net/healthcamp/index.cgi?healthca_mp
