Together.Health is an organization that uses the power of community to accelerate change in healthcare. When the group isn’t hosting fireside chats and panels at some of the world’s biggest healthcare conferences, they’re busy working behind the scenes to develop standards, identify resources, and champion solutions that promise to move the entire industry forward. Recently the group rebranded from the “Digital Health Collaborative” to Together.Health. We sat down to interview some of the team members to express our admiration for their shiny new .health domain and to get the lowdown on what they’re up to. Here’s the interview:
Two years ago at SXSW, we hadn’t even launched yet, but innovators were already hustling and launching projects on .health domain names through our pre-launch partnership program – including ImpactPediatric.health and Energizing.health. This year, we stopped in and checked up to see “where are they now”… Here’s our recap of SXSWHealth 2019!
Last month, we attended the 7th Annual StartUp Health Festival in San Francisco, where we met with innovators from startups and established companies that are transforming the world of healthcare. One of those startups was Adjuvant.Health. Allied Physicians Group, one of the largest independent medical partnerships in New York, created Adjuvant.Health to solve a prevalent problem in the world of pediatrics. Now more than ever, independent practitioners are hampered by the business of “running the office,” and have less time to care for patients.
WTF Health is a new video series hosted by Jessica DaMassa that seeks answers to the question, “what’s the future (WTF) of health?” Wait. Hold on. You thought WTF meant something else? Oh right. Well, it means that too. After all, healthcare is an industry we all love, and love to hate. Recently we caught up with Jessica to find out WTF is going on in the ever-changing world of health and technology, and learn more about her labor of love (and awesome .health domain), WTF.Health.
We returned last week from the SHSMD Connections conference in Seattle from Oct 6-10 where we were excited to join thousands of healthcare marketers, creative strategists, and integral supporting vendors. The SHSMD organizing team successfully addressed serious topics with an event infused a sense of fun and playfulness – including a street artist as a keynote speaker and an energetic event at the Museum of Pop Culture.
Last week, we joined health innovators from around the world at the Health 2.0 Annual Conference in Santa Clara, CA. This was our 2nd year at the conference, and we remain convinced that it’s one of the best. Health. Innovation. conferences. ever. We were even more impressed with all of the amazing companies and projects built on .health that were at Health 2.0 this year — check them out here!
Do you know pheo and para? Chances are, the answer to that question is no. After all, fewer than eight out of one million people are diagnosed with pheo (pheochromocytoma) and para (paraganglioma) per year. But, if you are one of those eight people, or a doctor who is new to the disease, the information found on KnowPheoPara.health could save your life, or the life of someone else.
Many industries have been depending on project management tools like Trello, Jira and Slack for years. And yet, email still reigns supreme as the defacto communication tool for healthcare because of HIPAA. Enter: Dr. Michael Docktor, a practicing gastroenterologist at Boston Children’s Hospital and Keather Roemhildt, a user experience designer from Silicon Valley. After experiencing a typical afternoon in Docktor’s department (yes, Docktor is his real last name) the two began designing solutions that would make things better. This led to the creation of Dock Health, a mobile task management and collaboration tool for medical teams.
We are excited to announce that we are providing 6 health innovators with free tickets to attend the Health 2.0 Fall Conference in Santa Clara, CA from September 16-18, 2018! That’s a value of $1,599 per ticket, and a chance to attend the premier annual conference for innovators in health!
“There’s got to be a better way.” It’s a statement we hear so often in the healthcare industry. And for one company it was the inspiration behind their solution, MyGiHealth, a platform that helps people find relief for gastrointestinal issues, communicate with their doctor, and connect with others who have similar symptoms. To find out more about MyGiHealth, we caught up with Duncan McLaren, the CEO of My Total Health, the spinoff company that developed the app for consumers. In the process, we learned that MyGiHealth is waaay more than just an app.
