I’m an old curmudgeon in the world of health technology. Best known as the founder of The Health Care Blog and (with Indu Subaiya) the Health 2.0 conferences, I now split my time between them, Catalyst @ Health 2.0 (not owned by HIMSS), and the SMACK.health Advisory service for health tech startups. Health 2.0 is the leading conference series showcasing frontier technologies in health care. In April 2017 HIMSS bought the conference side of Health 2.0 which I am now only peripherally involved with. The Catalyst @ Health 2.0 division (not part of HIMSS) runs challenges, code-a-thons, innovation programs, and market intelligence, and owns the SourceDB which has more health tech companies in it than you can imagine! The Health Care Blog has been a leading source of opinion, news and interviews about health and health technology since 2003. It also features my short but sweet “Health in 2 Point 00” videos with Jessica DaMassa which runs down the latest in Digital Health deals, and the weekly #THCBGang live video/podcast where I wrangle a group of health care know-it-alls. And at SMACK.health I advise around 25 startups navigating the health care world. During my career I’ve spent nearly 30 years in health care and health care IT as a generalist forecaster and strategist, I’ve worked for renowned forecasting (IFTF) and polling (Harris) organizations, conducted several ground breaking in-depth studies about many aspects of health care, and delivered several keynote addresses all over the world (and now all over Zoom). I know a few people too.
