For context consider reading ‘The Challenge of Meaningful Use to Joe Sixpack MD: Guest Blog By R. Vaughn, MD’, ‘ Thinking About Flower: A Concept is Born‘ and ‘Speak Flower’.
The planning committee for this “un-conference” which is scheduled for June has officially come together. The core planning group includes: Ryan Tarzy, President, http://www.medikeeper.com/, and Marc Needham, Corporate Director of Web Technology, Scripps Health, http://www.scripps.org/ who have joined Gregg Masters, Founder, http://preferredhospitals.com/ in crafting the initial agenda for this Health 2.0 event.
The official wiki for HealthCamp San Diego can be found at http://barcamp.org/HealthCampSanDiego.
We are looking at scheduling the conference to coincide either with AHIPs Insitutute 2009 event at the San Diego Convention Center http://www.ahip.org/links/institute2009/; or should the Southern California Chapter of HIMSS meet in San Diego, we might line up with their schedule as an alternate time.
We are enthusiatic about planning HealthCamp San Diego at a time when health reform and the value proposition of the health care equation, is at the center of a national conversation.
