Monday, March 7th, 2011 at 5PM Pacific/8PM Eastern, join in a round table panel discussion on HealthCamp San Diego, as we consider: Is HealthCamp a Cure for the Common Conference? Further does HealthCamp bring life to the consumer-driven health care conversation?
For more see John Mattison, MD, and Chief Medical Informatics Officer for Kaiser Permanente’s article click here. In Dr. Mattison’s words: ‘As many clinicians will tell you, there is no single change that will radically improve health care for everyone. Technology is often regarded as the secret sauce, but really, it is only an enabler. There is no silver bullet that will cause everyone to suddenly adopt healthy habits of eating, sleeping, and exercise. Yet if we could improve those habits only modestly and sustain that change over time, we would have a profound impact on both health and health care economics. The missing “secret sauce” and the big opportunity is not in discovering “the killer app for healthcare,” but in developing and implementing a behavioral and cultural symphony that engage each individual’s social network and effective behavioral mechanisms to create and sustain healthy lifestyles.’
Join us for a deep dive into the phenomenon and appeal of the ‘unconference’. HealthCamp San Diego is March 20th, 2011 at the Rady School of Management at UC San Diego. For details or to register online click here.
