Doctors 2.0 & You – More Than A Conference

The sun shone brightly in Paris last week as attendees flocked to the stunning location of the Cité Internationale Universitaire de Paris for the Doctors 2.0 & You conference.

Now in its third year, this unique event, brilliantly orchestrated by the indefatigable Denise Silber of Basil Strategies, brings together doctors, patients, healthcare innovators, industry and payers in a truly participatory event to share and learn from each other.

The Doctors 2.0 agenda addresses the role of new technology in healthcare from healthcare social media best practice to innovative web 2.0 tools and mobile apps  – crucially from both the doctor and patient perspective.

I was honored to be invited to speak on both days of the conference on the proof of healthcare  social media (in the form of patient blogs and tweet chats) from the patient perspective.

This was my first Doctors 2.0 & You experience and it truly surpassed all my expectations. It is so more than a conference – it is about the exchange of stimulating ideas, the spark of creativity and the illumination of inspiration, and above all the delightful coming together of old friends and the exciting creation of new partnerships. It is Doctors 2.o & You – the must-attend event of the year and an event you really shouldn’t miss.
