A "HealthTweep" Pulse Check

Exploring transformational potential of social media

‘Health Geek Radio’ is on the web!

Ok, this is definitely a report from the ‘lean and agile’ department, and a granular sign of the ‘interactive digital’ times we’re in.

This idea is about ten (10) days old. The genesis came from Susannah Fox, e-patient and Associate Director of Digital Strategy, of the Pew Internet and American Life Project. Susannah apparently caught my broadcast of Adam Bosworth who was keynoting at the Alliance for Healthcare Foundation’s Innovation Initiative in San Diego. While acknowledging the visuals weren’t best in class, she noted the content Adam offered was worth a listen and bucketed the event in the ‘health geek radio‘ domain.

When I first heard the name ‘health geek radio’ I thought, how cool is that? And certainly there’s a lot of interest in emerging technologies all dialed into the patient or consumer empowerment cause. So, I queried the domain and also checked to see if that account ID was available at BlogTalkRadio; to my surprise, both were open, so I promptly grabbed them.

Today, I recorded a brief introduction as to the genesis and forward value of creating such a health geek community focus. Take a listen here.

The first official broadcast is yet to be confirmed, but I will invite thought leaders and change agents into the conversation. Several who I have spoken with already have indicated an interest in participating, including: Matthew Holt, Dave DeBronkart (e-patientDave), Phil Baumann, and Dr. Danny Sands, to name a few.
