Medical Quack Streams a Little Video from the Cell Phone After Web 2.0 Meet Up
Posted Sep 10 2009 10:25pm
I did a presentation today on web 2.0 “free applications” for a group of doctors at a local hospital in Long Beach. Also in attendance making a presentation was Vivek from TrialX, the Clinical Trial software that works with HealthVault and Google Health. Afterwards, we did a short video saying hello and basically I wanted to see if I could use the software and really stream useful information, and it worked! Not too bad for a blonde at work and I hope to provide more of these in time!
Dr. Mike makes some kind comments along with Vivek afterwards. What is also nice is to hear voices and actually get to see the people too! We discussed Twitter, PHRs, E-Prescribing and TrialX today with brief overviews. I went through a visual description of HealthVault and how devices connect. Dr. Mike, speaking here is in cardiology and his field is definitely one of the first to be impacted with consumer interest and use with medical devices that record and transmit data and we talked about how a PHR is the gathering place instead of having to use several different software programs to track the information.
Be kind here, I’m just getting started! Today was an introduction as I called it to start using the “free” software, including Twitter to read medical journals before jumping into an EMR. Twitter in itself can save time and money to target the reports that the physician wants to read and not have to filter through articles that are not of interest to their field. BD
