HealthCamp San Diego | Join the conversation on March 20th!
San Diego’s second healthcare ‘unconference’ will take place at the Rady School of Management, Sunday March 20th, 2011, 9 – 10AM (registration/breakfast/morning social), unconference from 10AM to 4PM, with Social Hour/Networking from 4 to 6PM) on the beautiful campus of UC San Diego atop the bluffs of Torrey Pines in La Jolla, California. HealthCamp San Diego is one of several ‘pre-conference’ activities organized in conjunction with the Health 2.0 ‘Spring Fling‘, which will be held on March 21-22, 2011 at the Hilton La Jolla also in Torrey Pines.
HealthCamp engages ‘stakeholders’ in a big tent all inclusive format ranging from health system and health policy thought leaders to physicians and consumers, as well as ancillary providers, payors, suppliers, and regulators via an ‘unconference’ format to innovate, transform and re-design health(care).
Registration for general participants is $25 and for students is $5.
As a user-organized, one day “unconference”, HealthCamp brings together all participants in a collaborative, informal exchange of ideas to find ways to improve health(care).
Attendees will generally reflect:
- Healthcare consumers
- Health providers
- Health industry experts
- Technology professionals
Participants themselves provide the content, with break-out sessions they develop themselves and plug into a schedule grid on the day of the event.
Anyone can present and host a session in nearly any format. Typical sessions can range from ad hoc round-table conversations to full turn-key multi-media presentations.

After nearly two years in the incubator, the inaugural session of HealthCamp San Diego has been confirmed, and will be held on September 7th, 2010 at the Town and Country Resort and Convention Center, in coordination with the 2nd mHealth Networking Conference.
HealthCamp is a collaborative experience that typically tethers to how interactive digital or social media, open source and the best of the Internet, mobile (mHealth) web, and process innovation can enable better health(care) outcomes via more effective patient or consumer engagement, and incidentally further evolve developers in health technology applications and/or platforms.
HealthCamp is a user-organized ‘un–conference’ that brings together consumers (aka e-patients), health providers, payors, health industry experts and technology professionals for a one (1) day session to exchange ideas informally, locally, openly. Participants themselves provide the content, with break-out sessions they develop themselves and plug into a schedule grid on the day of the event. Anyone can present and host a session in nearly any format.
Past HealthCamp’s have been held in Boston, Philadelphia, Washington, DC, Nashville, Oakland (the SF Bay area), Maryland, and the UK. For a brief overview of HealthCamp, click here.
HealthCamp San Diego is coordinating with the 2nd mHealth Networking Conference to be held at the same location following HealthCamp San Diego on September 8th and 9th, 2010.
Please consider joining us for this inaugural ‘un-conference’ experience. Among the many topics likely to be presented in the tech-enabled consumer empowerment conversation is emerging health information technology (HIT) capabilities, with an emphasis on new communication patterns enabled by mobile technologies for:
- patient communication by text and email
- clinician collaboration systems
- use of apps on mobile devices; and
- aspects of user-generated care
