Health Information Technology Video Film Festival



Health Train Express is designed to bring health care providers out of their own silos.

The health care industry is already involved in data exchange and interoperability. The next step in order to move forward is  to dissolve distance and barriers between information, science, medical science and social media.  Social media allows all to dip their toes into areas physicians have previously ignored either intentionally, time constraints, or accidental negligence.

It is equivalent to the ‘cocktail party’ of social circles….many of which have led to great discoveries and collaborations.

2012 and the Developer Challenge has thus far brought major innovative mobile health applications to the world stage. Winners will harvest not only a moderate of cash prizes, but attract the world stage of kick starter funds and venture capital. The cast of new possible star will create enthusiasm to industry critical analysis. This is occurring as electronic health records are adopted by hospitals and physicians alike.


Health2con is occurring in San Francisco next week and is anticipated to bring more new players to mHealth. Physicians and hospital managers as well as health information technology producers are observing the potential connect with other industries and adoption of not only information technology  robotic, analytic and even gaming applications in design of  healthcare and scientific problem solving.
