I was thrilled to be part of the Health 2.0 meets Information Therapy (Ix) Conference.
I conducted a series of interviews, and here you’ll find the first interview with Dr. Alan Greene. Dr. Greene discusses what Health 2.0 means and how it affects patients.
Dr. Greene says that Health 2.0 is an exciting time in health care!
Health 2.0 is “user generated health care, and when people are really well informed and take charge of their own health, everyone is better off,” says Dr. Greene.
Online communities for patients offer support and information.
[The next Health 2.0 conferences are Oct. 6-7, 2009 in San Francisco and April 6-7, 2010 in Paris].
