#health2con - Data really matters

More real time notes from the Health 2.0 Conference...

Regina Holiday (@reginaholiday) telling a powerful story  about the loss of her husband. check out "73 cents"

This panel will comment on a series of demonstrations:

Roni Zeiger, Chief Health Strategist - Google Health
Phil Fasano, Sr VP and CIO Kaiser Permanente
David Cerino, GM Consumer Health Solutions, Microsoft HealthVault
Wayne Gattinella, CEO WebMD

The demonstrations wil come from:
Jonathan Hare, Chairman and Founder, Resilient Network Systems
Clay Patterson, Managing Director, Personal Health, Cerner
Bob Blonchek, President and CTO, Razoron Health Innovations
Jay Couse, SVP Business Development, Diversinet

Wayne G: The work is just beginning. How do we unlock the value of the Personal Health Records.  

Kaiser - talking about Convergent Medical Terminology. They have made this open source and donated to National Library of Medicine.

Half of Kaiser members (nearly 4M) access their Health Record online.

Microsoft - Amalga is their provider solution. Data is not the entire answer. It has to be transformed to make it more useful.

The consumer is going to start driving how information is  moved around

Google -  Data alone is relatively meaningless. It is about conversations. We should start talking about Participatory Health Records and not Personal Health Records. Google focusing on the core value to the end user/consumer.

On to the demonstrations.....

Resilient Network Systems

We assume the intelligence is in the applications. 

Resilient believes it should reside in the network.

They provide a platform with "Trust Broker", Access Server and Identity Broker

Identity Broker allows 2 different parties to confirm who they are talking with and about.

Trust Broker creates a network of trust services to handle record retention and other capabilities.

The demonstration sowed a fascinating glimpse of the potential to create composite applications without requiring all the interfaces between apps to be pre-defined.

Kaiser and Google agree: Identity and Access Management is a critical element. Probably the most important challenge. For self contained organizations this is easier. you control more of the elements.

Google has open sourced their solution for two factor authentication. They were humbled about how difficult a problem it was to solve and make it user friendly.

WebMD sees some nervousness from employers

Bob Blonchek - Razoron - HealthJive

Razoron have created RazCodes a two dimensional bar code.

The code is scanned using a cell phone to take a picture.  Microsoft TAG Reader was used on a blackberry.

This links through to a web site. The razcode can collect payment and allow the user to post the information from the transaction to a health record. They link to Google, Healthvault, Keas and a numb er of other PHR platforms.

This recognizes that Paper is still part of the process. The tag allows the integration of Paper in to an electronic process.

Googles new URL shortener even generates QR codes (same as tag codes) on the fly.

Jay Couse - Diversinet

Mobisecure Vault.

Allow organizations to data to be repurposed. 

Allows publishing to mobile devices.

Healthcare connected and protected.

WebMD: Plans are not yet ready to share information. 

Clay Patterson - Cerner

Demonstrating their personal health solution and how data can be communicated. 

The demo had a wireless pedometer that fed his personal health record in Cerner Active.

Microsoft: Make sure the data stays open. 

WebMD Mobile Platform

The iPhone App is already used by 2M consumers
The WebMD symptom checker is available on the iPhone.
