Next Tuesday: HealthCamp Boston

HealthCamp Boston happens next Tuesday, April 21st at Microsoft's NERD Center in Cambridge. The $25 admission price covers the cost of food and beverages.

Boston is emerging as a center of e-health thinking (and doing), and this gathering will address "the use of Social Networks, Open Standards and the latest Internet and Mobile Technologies in the transformation of Health Care," according to its organizers.

This is an unconference-style event, so everyone who comes has a chance to present. Among the topics being suggested so far:

    - physician-consumer engagement/interaction using Health Clouds (GHealth, HealthVault, etc) for care continuity.

    - mobile phone use for healthcare and wellness.

    - improving integration of the 911 system and emergency responders with a much more technically sophisticated healthcare delivery system.

    - identifying lessons learned in open source communities, e.g. the drupal community, and exploring how they might be applied to healthcare, particularly EHRs.

    - real, value adding uses of twitter in healthcare.

    - Privacy law -- HIPAA and Son-of-HIPAA (in the HITECH Act) -- and its effect on social media in health care
