Digihealth Pulse Virtual 2014 (DHPV) is an online digital health conference that will take place during the month of May. There will be virtual roundtables taking place from May 1-21, and the main conference will be May 19, 20 & 21. The conference is being produced by Enspektos – a digital health innovation firm headed up by Fard Johnmar. Among other things, Fard has developed and implemented programs for numerous major global and domestic pharmaceutical companies, nonprofits, medical associations and government organizations, and is one of the authors of the recently published ePatient 2015.
There are two things I love about this virtual conference that Fard has put together. First, he has lined up an amazing array of speakers including Dan Munro, Jane Sarasohn-Kanh, Esther Dyson, Enoch Choi, Marie Ennis-O’Connor, Alex Fair, David Goldsmith and Matthew Zachary, just to name a few. There are many more! These are the people I follow on social media – my peer group. Second, you can attend this conference from your home or office, without the expense of air travel and hotels. To me, it is amazing to have access to all these thinkers without having to physically attend a national conference. This is such an impressive line-up.
I am honored to be serving on the faculty for this event. In my presentation I’ll discuss why it is important for health organizations to support patients and other health consumers using digital technology platforms, including online patient support communities and social networks.
