How to advance the use of Health 2.0.

Are we asking the right questions?
Do we have the right partnerships?
Are we using the right technologies?

FDA Investments:
– Great content but content is not necessarily king. We have a glut of content. We need good content.
– How do you make content usable – Information Structure and Design to bring clarity.

– Syndication: we need to reuse good content. Widgets and Feeds play a big part.

– Mobile: Everyone has a phone (96% of US population. – 34% have a smartphone)

Open Government: 

– Government as a Service
– Government as a Platform (this will tie in with the George Thomas presentation later tonight)
