Incentive Programs
Geo incentives (e.g Foursquare)

13-18 year olds - Don't use email. But they have phones with them at all times.
Points are big. Social Gaming comes in to play.

We have to incentivize the Physicians and clinicians. We need filters.

Doctors in Emergency Care. 10% or less of patients are invested in their own health.
