HealthCamp SD 2010Posted: September 7, 2010
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
