Monday, March 14th, 2011 at 5PM Pacific/8PM Eastern, join in a round table panel discussion on HealthCamp San Diego, as we continue our discussion of: Is [HealthCamp] a 'Cure' for the Common Conference? And perhaps more on point, can HealthCamp 'bring life' to the promise of consumer-driven health care? For context, see John Mattison, MD, Chief Medical Informatics Officer for Kaiser Permanente's article: http://bit.ly/fESWav/ 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 of 'un-conference'. HealthCamp San Diego is March 20th, 2011 at the Rady School of Management at UC San Diego.
