The video of Marty Tenenbaum’s presentation Healthcare 3.0: Transforming Medicine through Collective Intelligence can now be downloaded as well as viewed online. This particular presentation was given at the Biomedin 200 Collaquia at Stanford University in May.
Here’s the abstract:
All of healthcare is an experiment, but we measure only a small
portion of the outcomes, i.e., in clinical trials. We’re also not very
good at collaboratively analyzing the data, interpreting the results,
and disseminating them in a timely and meaningful manner. In this talk
we will present a vision and technological approach for addressing
these problems by using the Web to tap the collective intelligence of
patients, physicians and medical researchers, ultimately bringing the
world’s knowledge and resources to bear on curing diseases one patient
at a time.
