    If Health 2.0 London ran a future event on hospitals in 2014 - what would you like to see covered? Anything different from last week's event?

    • Jacky P.

      While the Health Service is National the commissioning system isn't. Each Trust buys its own IT systems, working within public sector procurement rules. It makes it hard for SMEs to get into the market. It's always worth looking at Technology Strategy Board calls, to see if there is scope to fund pilot project development. There is also a growing appetite for open source in the health informatics community, check out OpenEyes from Moorfields hospital.

      Thanks Jacky & Eoin - Free wifi in hospitals? I doubt it. Some hospitals seem to charge 6 pounds just to park in the car park for a few minutes, how can they afford free wifi? Unless, hospital wifi is sponsored by a private sector firm. Having someone speak on access to hospital records would be good.

    It is a pity I have just joined your community. Could have offered so much to this meeting coming from a patients perspective, ex NHS and also Healthcare IT design.
    We focus our efforts on the side of the Doctor, the Hospital, and with the patient with long term conditions & we forget the man (woman, child) in the street.
    We design around the Doctor, the hospital and not around the customer of the service expecting them to understand the clinical words and terminology. To most human beings it is a foreign language.
    Those are the basics which todays technology needs to create, simple effective tools for the patient, the man, the woman, & every child in the world, create a health record to encapsulate the needs for every person on the planet to understand their health.

      I couldn't agree more with you Tony. I have just discovered the blog of a US based UX designer called Katie McCurdy. She has myaesthenia gravis and does some great visualisations on life from the patient perspective - http://katiemccurdy.c...­

      October 13, 2013

    • Tony H.

      Thank you Maneesh & Nigel, would love to get involved if I can, very much have my own thoughts on how patients could understand their health records in a simplified format.

    UK based Medopad (one of our portfolio companies) application does the same thing in a really elegant manner. The patient record, lab results, imaging, etc are all available to the doctor on an Ipad at the point of care. Documents are pushed to the doctor when they are available so no one has to chase them. It is currently being piloted across the BMI group of hospitals. www.medopad.com

  • Julian W.

    Fabulous. An excellent, if slightly disturbing summary of what works, what doesn't but also showed how much opportunity there is to move things forward.

    2 · October 10, 2013

    • Maneesh J.

      Thanks Julian - Glad you enjoyed the event. We hope that last night ignited new conversations which will hopefully lead to new ideas that will help patients across the country (and the doctors and nurses that look after them too!)
