A "HealthTweep" Pulse Check

Exploring transformational potential of social media

Mayo Clinic ‘Transform’ Healthcare Symposium

with 2 comments

The visionaries at Mayo Clinic are at it again.

On September 13-15th, 2009, the Mayo Clinic Center for Innovation is hosting a collaborative symposium entitled ‘Transform‘. This event intends to engage ‘stakeholders’ in the timely yet complex conversation of how to reform the health care experience, including its over-engineered, under performing and unsustainable panoply of failed business models.

The net is cast wide to include and crowdsource the entire spectrum of interested parties from physicians, hospitals and health plans to bloggers, ‘twitterers’, scientists, designers, health policy wonks and artists.

The goal is to transform both how health care is experienced, delivered, and lest we forget, financed. The symposium intends to be ‘organic’ and ignite both real time (at conference and via the ‘twittersphere’) and a post event, after market continued engagement in this very timely conversation.

Why Attend?

  • To be part of the solution.
  • To connect with thoughtful colleagues from inside and outside the health care industry.
  • To discover new models of care that will transform the experience and delivery of health care in the 21st century.

Lots of talented and forward thinking tweeple speaking and likley to participate in this event.

So who’s going to be the anchor model in medicine? Will it be Mayo or McAllen? The stakes are high, so why not be the change you want to see Tweeple…. lets get ‘er done!

    • A couple of suggestions:

      1. Go to Mayo Clinic ‘Transform’ site http://centerforinnovation.mayo.edu/transform/index.html and consider subscribing to email notices.
      2. Consider attending event if you can.
      3. If not, consider “tweeting” event via posts to ‘txfm09 hashtag’.
      4. Share what you learn,
      5. Offer your insights.
      6. Participate in #healthreform conversation on Twitter or via its downstream clients (TweetDeck, Seesmic, etc…)

      A great question….Thank you!
