#Health2con Kicks off on the main stage

Real time notes from the tenth annual Health2.0 fall conference.


  • Patient Engagement
  • Devices and wearables


2016 is going to be a record year. Exceeding 2015 $4.8B.

New models are emerging for care delivery.

New models of Health Plans

eg. Oscar, Clover, Collective Health, Bright Health

Enabled by new technology layers.

eg. FHIR

DokChain – Block Chain

Enabled by new data analytics.

eg. IBM Watson
Human Longevity for Human Genome analysis.

Established Systems and Plans are not standing still.

SMAC (K) Health

No Unmentionables this year

But there are still issues:

  • Diversity
  • Access
  • Disparities
  • Hunger
  • Loneliness
  • Violence
  • Suicide
