Health 2.0 - Discussing the impact of Web 2.0 on Healthcare

Join us to hear a dynamic panel of experts who will be discussing their experiences and viewpoints about how Web 2.0 technologies and solutions are impacting the Healthcare domain. Our speakers for this meetup include: David Hale, from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) National Library of Medicine, is very active in the Health 2.0 movement and is also involved in several very interesting initiatives as part of his day job. This includes the development of Pillbox: an application that enhances patient safety using a Mashup of Government Data, High-Resolution Imaging and Analysis, and Community-Developed Tools. He is also working on a Semantic Web project that looks at Natural Language Processing of Twitter #swineflu Posts using the Semantic Medline Prototype. Mark Scrimshire, from CareFirst Blue Cross Blue Shield, is currently working as a Senior Web Strategist advising on the deployment of technology to address business transformation issues in the healthcare industry. Mark specializes in rapid deployment of solutions to address business problems using Web 2.0 technologies and techniques. Mark is also very active in the Web 2.0 and Health 2.0 communities and is the organizer of the popular HealthCamp series of events. In his past, Mark spent 18 months blogging for O’Reilly Media at AOL, producing a daily blog talking about the implications of Web 2.0 technology. Michelle Strah from General Dynamics. Up until a few months ago Michelle was a member of US Army Medical where she acted as a Web 2.0 and Social Media strategy consultant. As a civilian, Michelle is now a consultant to Defense Centers of Excellence for Psychological Health and Traumatic Brain Injury, where she acts as a subject matter expert in the use of Web 2.0 technologies and solutions. We have decided to try a new location this time, so we are holding the meetup in downtown Silver Spring at the Eggspectations restaurant and bar. This is a short walk from metro and there is plenty of parking. We also would also like to thank our new Sponsor, Aquilent, as they have agreed to pay for some great appetizers and beverages for all that attend the meetup. We look forward to seeing you all on the 5th.

    terrific, informative lineup of speakers. it was great that they listened to each other and lent insights/tie-ins to each other's topics. often times speakers give their speech and then drop out of the proceedings. not last night!

    The speakers were good. I would have liked them to share more specifics about how they use social media. It also would have been good for people to submit questions, perhaps in advance, that could have been answered. This could have helped to guide the conversation more to what the attendees were looking for.

    Thanks for putting on this event. It's always good to get together with others in the field, and I'd be interested in attending other such events.

    I thought two hours of presentations was a bit long. I wish it had been shorter to allow for more conversations. The topics and speakers were good.

    The speakers and content was great, though the networking afterwards was probably the best part (always is). We will need to look for a better and bigger place for the next meetup.
