Boston drives to the forefront of the health 2.0 sector
BOSTON, Oct. 3 /PRNewswire/ -- The Endovascular Forum Inc. (EVF) announced today that its president, Robert Reid, will be leading discussions about e-health and the emerging "Health 2.0" sector as a panelist in the Health 2.0 Northeast event on Tuesday, October 7, 2008, at the Cambridge Marriott, Cambridge, MA. In a panel discussing "Where is e-Health Now?," Mr. Reid will bring the perspective of EVF's decade of experience with Internet-based physician communities.
Online physician networking companies participate in the electronic medical care advancement marketplace, in which inter-clinician exchanges serve as interventions that accelerate dissemination of expertise and thereby represent the next generation of clinical professional development. These Internet collaborative intelligence instruments further the effectiveness and efficiencies of traditional clinical interventions and provide real-time access to and production of evidence at the site of care.
Health 2.0 is a new concept of health care that employs social software and other web-based tools to promote collaboration between patients, their caregivers, medical professionals, and other health care stakeholders to create a better and more cost effective environment for improved well being. Other event panelists draw from a star-studded list of Boston's e-health community, including Aaron Day, the CEO of Tangerine Wellness, Stan Nowak, CEO of Silverlink, Ben Heywood, President of PatientsLikeMe, and Jack Barrette, the CEO of WeGo Health.
