Mainstreaming of @Health2con #Health2con @BoltyBoy talking with Michael Millenson @MLMillenson

Health 2.0 Conference

Realtime notes from the ninth Annual Health 2.0 Fall Conference at the Santa Clara Convention Center.
Here is the online Agenda:

Keynote: Matthew Holt

Health 2.0 is just getting into the mainstream. Other tools and approaches like disease management and patient safety seem to have been held back because they can’t prove the elusive ROI. Others, like EMRs & ACOs and almost any med tech intervention and drug you can think of seem to roll right ahead.

So how should we think about the business future and likely impact of the technologies we show on stage? And what should we all be saying to the health care system? Patient safety expert and all around witty gadfly Michael Millenson will join Matthew Holt to make some suggestions.

Reasons for Adoption:

###1 The Customer has to buy it.

Not much adoption of EMR…

RAND did a study on behalf of EMR Vendors. Suggested $81B of $2T Market.

HITECH attached to ARRA in 2009.

Money to subsidize implementation of EMR. Free money came with a requirement: Meaningful Use.

2. Your product or service makes money for your customer

Disease Management companies grew in 1990’s.

The Medicare Health Support Study showed that Disease Management increased cost and didn’t improve outcomes.

3. Your Product or service promotes your customer’s mission or culture.

To Err is Human – by Institute of Medicine.

400,000 people die each year from preventible medical errors.

Improving this situation is a mission for many customers and embedded int heir culture.

Health 2.0 is now mainstream.

Lead and change healthcare so it works for people in the system and the people they treat.
