Susannah Fox's keynote at Health 2.0

Thanks to Amir Lewkowicz of for this video link. He put it in a comment on yesterday's post, but I'm not sure the long link fit, so it's included again below.

Earlier this week, at the Health 2.0 conference in San Diego, Susannah Fox of the Pew Internet and American Life project gave a terrific yet short keynote speech. I wouldn't be surprised if we someday mark this as a cusp, a turning point. It's the best quick answer to "What's all this e-patient stuff?", plus a bonus super-sharp insight into what the future holds.

Spend 10 minutes watching the video clips below and you'll pretty much be up to speed.

  • Video extracts of Susannah's talk, plus a post-interview, here.
  • Full text, with her annotations, here.
  • Article about the event on ReadWriteWeb.
Susannah's a member of the e-Patient Scholars Working Group. So is my primary physician, Dr. Danny Sands. I love these people and what they're up to; they are actively working at making reality of the principles, practices and ideals I acquired during my cancer adventure. (And man are they smart and fun!)
