On March 20th, 2011 from the beautiful campus of the Rady School of Management (SOM) , Kaiser Permanente, and Rady SOM, with additional sponsorship by Cynergy Systems (other sponsors to be named shortly), in cooperation with 'Health 2.0 Spring Fling', are pleased to bring you the second HealthCamp San Diego, an un-conference on health and healthcare innovation.
HealthCamp is a collaborative experience designed to create ‘open space’ for one-to-one, or one-to-many, peer-to-peer learning, collaboration and creative expression. As an un-conference, all sessions are participant generated, with many tethered either direct or indirectly to how interactive digital or social media, open source and the best of the Internet, whether mobile (mHealth) web, or process innovation can enable better health(care) outcomes (i.e., better care, increased access or reduced cost).
An overview of the process is as follows: At the start, the whole group will gather together and be guided through creating an agenda using principles of ‘open space’. The exact process is not important to fully grasp in advance – as the process will become clear as the day unfolds. The important part is that all those gathered will have the opportunity to put conference sessions on the agenda. No session will be voted off or ‘won’t happen’ for some other reason. All sessions are welcome.
The sessions convened will range from the formal, i.e., a planned multimedia presentation reflecting years of research and practice, to the informal and spur of the moment ‘new idea’ that would be fun to talk about.
