It gives us immense pleasure to announce our 1st annual Health 2.0 India in New Delhi on January 30th, 2012.
Something has changed. Something is different. And following the success of our events in the United States and in Europe, it makes sense that we engage the unmistakable influence India, China and other Asian countries have had in shaping how we think about innovation and how we solve healthcare challenges.
At Health 2.0 India we will witness Health 2.0 technologies intersecting with ancient culture; where modern medicine and technology collide with the Ayurvedic mindset; where mobile health (mHealth) connects the poor, reaches the unreachable and engages the influentials; where the buzz around healthcare is not just about medical tourism, but also used as soft diplomacy in the fight on terror as well as a tool to strengthen social development initiatives; and where wellness strikes a yoga pose or leverages a Bollywood tune.
From our very first conference in San Francisco in 2007, where we witnessed the launch of companies like Sermo, PatientsLikeMe, and Healthline, Health 2.0 has explored the worlds of â€˜user-generated healthcareâ€™. What became our tag line in â€™07 contains the germ of a compelling idea that India and the surrounding region bring to life in ways unimaginable just a decade ago. Patients are using new tools to guide their own care. And now those tools are starting to integrate with the healthcare system. Doctors, patients, and health care organizations are all starting to use a new generation of online and mobile technologies which are fundamentally changing the way healthcare is delivered.
Using the same ingredients that have made our events successes in the US and in Europe - live demos, provocative keynotes, interactive panels â€“ Health 2.0 India will focus on the specific opportunities of the Indian market in content & search, provider tools, clinical trials, communities and data production, wellness & behavior change tools, medical tourism, system integration, data utility layer & tools, mobile devices and smart phones.
Weâ€™ll be tackling some of the biggest issues in healthcare from food tech, resource limits, health education, policy and prevention, to new analytics for mining patient data to exploring innovative models to lower the cost of care. Weâ€™ll be joined by visionary leaders from across industries, governments, NGOs and the CEOs of the most cutting edge Health 2.0 companies emerging today. Of course, all presented in our ever-evolving, ever engaging format of live demonstration and expert curation!
The event will convene all the leaders and stakeholders in web 2.0 technology for health: ITC solution providers, health professionals, futurists, global thinkers, patient organizations, health policy officials, public and private health care organizations, medical devices and pharmaceutical companies, telecom groups, investors, scientists and design thinkers.
With our local partner CIMGlobal we will make sure this conference fuels the power of ideas, shares them freely and introduces you to a community who are making their presence felt globally. Itâ€™s a whole new world of opportunity
We are looking forward to sharing the success of Health 2.0 India with you!
