  • Health STAT Speakers August 7, 2014

    Palladian Partners is pleased to announce the list of speakers for the upcoming Health 2.0 STAT event on Thursday, August 7, 2014, at The Barking Dog in Bethesda. Registration is now open! To register, visit the Health 2.0 STAT meetup site.

    Plan to join us this Thursday, August 7th, to hear a rapid-fire series of short presentations from five Health 2.0 leaders. The presentations will be followed by a panel style Q&A session, led by a moderator, who will facilitate and explore a range of topics. This evening’s event will feature talks about health informatics and patient engagement, leveraging technology to engage patients in their health.

    1. Juan Pablo Segura, 1eq
    Juan Pablo Segura is obsessed with how the Internet of Things can improve the way we interact with our healthcare. His company, 1eq, is focused on reimagining how technology can be used to manage prenatal care through its product – Babysteps. He has also been named a Healthcare Transformer by the Startup Health Academy in New York City and he writes frequently on different technology topics in the space through his company’s blog.

    2. Brendan McAdams, Expertscape
    While tremendous effort has been invested in making data accessible to the various constituents in the healthcare system, it remains a difficult undertaking to find a highly qualified medical expert or institution when a patient has been diagnosed with a serious condition, and those resources that do identify and rank medical expertise are based upon flawed and/or biased methodologies. Expertscape (;­) is the first comprehensive, objective tool to help patients and others identify and evaluate medical expertise by the very specific disease and geography that is important to them. The system uses its patented, big data methodology and algorithms to analyze and quantify the NIH’s PubMed database, enabling the healthcare consumer to research and select medical expertise and institutions for a second opinion or treatment.
    Brendan McAdams serves as the Managing Director of Expertscape, and is based in Baltimore. He is a 30-year marketing and sales executive focused on consumer-directed solutions for health plans, health systems and Accountable Care Organizations.

    3. Wendy Rubinstein, NLM/NCBI
    Medical professionals need accurate genomic medicine information at the point of care.
    NCBI has the data.
    You make the app.

    4. Daniel Johnston, MD, MPH, LTC, US Army
    In 2012, the Department of Defense charged Daniel T. Johnston, MD, MPH, with creating an online wellness platform that would enable the agency to assess, manage and improve the health of active duty Soldiers and Army civilians. Johnston led a project with Sharecare to build ArmyFit: a platform maximizing digital engagement and fostering behavioral change through tailored content and interactive tools. During this presentation, attendees will learn how the Army is utilizing data-driven applications to monitor and improve population health and program effectiveness at the installation level, as well as optimize development of health policy and resource allocation.
