Crowdsourcing a Revolution: Can We Fix Healthcare?
    Healthcare is 18% of US GDP and will be 37% by 2050, if nothing changes. We must reinvent how we deliver healthcare. In the past year, prizes and challenges have come in to vogue in the health sector. Prizes and challenges have a long history of benefiting humanity and driving major breakthroughs, for example a prize was used to incentivize the first flight across the Atlantic. Prizes are effective at crowdsourcing innovation, accelerating progress, and attracting new talent. Some of the leading prize evangelists will describe their platforms from big dollar prizes to more modest amounts along with lessons learned. The XPrize Foundation is launching a bid to fund a $10M XPrize for a Tricoder device; Health 2.0 has launched over 25 challenges with over 150 teams; NASA has built and open innovation strategy for health and the government is seeding grand challenges for global health. We are in the early stage of challenges for health and most are focused on apps, games, and data visualizations. Come hear how we can use challenges to fix healthcare, spur new business models, and avoid prize and app fatigue. This Future of Health Track is sponsored by Aetna.

Supersizing the Classroom: 3000 Students & Beyond

    A standard, supposedly self-evident fact: small class size is pedagogically superior for all student learning. Poppycock! This presentation will outline our successful strategies for expanding the conventional college classroom to 3000 students...and beyond. Combining a dynamic speaker with innovative technologies, social networking tools, and non-conventional sources of knowledge can produce an environment which fosters student engagement, content retention, deep comprehension, and lifelong curiosity...even in ultra-large classes. Integrating video podcasts, graphic novels, film, Facebook, Twitter, Poll Everywhere, and Ustream into course structure can increase choices and flexibility in student-centered activities/assignments, and facilitate increased teacher-student and student-to-student interaction. This course model challenges conventional class-size wisdom, conquers the confines of physical classrooms, and defies the old-school, teacher-centered pedagogy of centuries past.

StartUp Health: Transforming Healthcare in America

3:30pm

Build a Massive Peer Learning Community Online
    Peer 2 Peer University is a volunteer-supported open learning community. Together with Mozilla we started the "School of Webcraft" - a place where web developers learn hackers' habits, build up portfolios, and receive badges for their accomplishments. We are currently developing similar programmes for social innovators, in-service teachers, and data scientists. The goal of P2PU is to enable anyone to learn just about anything - by connecting individuals with each other and with existing educational content on the web. We are fans of the idea of the university, but the traditional education system has become too expensive, too focused on one-size-fits-all solutions, and is growing out of touch with the needs of many learners, employers and society. It is time for a bit of disruptive innovation. P2PU started as a crazy idea a little over 2 years ago, and has grown into a registered non-profit organization with staff in three countries, users in over 100 countries, and partnerships with industry leaders and some of the leading traditional universities of the world. In this session, we would like to share our experiences and discuss what the open future of education will look like.

Social Media Cures Cancer and Speaks for Survivors

5:00pm

Crowdsourcing Cancer Support: A Love Story

    Cancer care and support is changing dramatically as blogging, social media, facebook and mmo gaming become mass media. Trisha Creekmore, aka Tinkerhell, a mother, wife and digital denizen since 1995, has had breast cancer twice. The first diagnosis in 2004 was hard and lonely. The second diagnosis in 2010 was harder, but not lonely. Trisha and her husband David found the content on health Web sites unhelpful and online disease-specific support groups depressing. So they made up their own plan, harnessing the power of facebook, the mmo Warhammer and thousands of strangers to create Cancerpalooza. David blogged every week. His plan was to keep family and friends informed, but the blog and the community it created became much more than the sum of their parts, inspiring and bringing value to complete strangers, the entire mmorpg community and even rockstars like Mike Patton and Ozzy Osbourne. But not in an annoying social-media-positive-sharing way. More in a FML-WTF-LOL way. This Future of Health Track is sponsored by Aetna.

Friending Pharma: Patients, Industry & New Media
    As more and more patients begin using social media as an information source and a support network, it's inevitable that they'll begin to interact with representatives of pharmaceutical companies looking to use new technologies to inform and educate. While consumer-industry interactions are not new -- Comcast crawls Twitter for those in need of tech support, and Gatorade sends electronic high-fives to high school athletes -- links between drug companies and those they serve are more fraught, with some patients celebrating dialogue and others warning that such relationships are intrinsically inappropriate. This panel -- including patients, advocates and industry -- will explore the ground rules of "friending" big pharma and the ground rules that biopharma firms must play by to ensure patients aren't taken advantage of.

The New Black? How Digital Ed Is Everything

    …Back to school? Not necessarily appealing right? The experimental, embedded, and reflexive departments of education and training within creative industries are reinventing education. This panel gathers some visionaries to discuss the positioning of education in the modern workplace. Many traditional business functions such as PR, sales, marketing, philanthropy, recruitment, and business development are now “education initiatives.” There is a need for a 21c model of professional adult education in the workplace. We’ll discuss what the possibilities are given new cooperative models, technological tools, talent gaps, and knowledge sharing in the increasingly competitive fields of global business. We will also share thoughts on pioneering schools including ones internal and/or external to the organization, institution, start-up, and platform-specific models.

How STDs Can Be Good for Your Health

12:30pm

Designing Positive Daily Addictions
    There’s no secret behind what makes for healthy living. Don’t smoke, eat right, and get some exercise to start. The problem is, being healthy feels a lot like work.

    So our core question: How can we make healthy behavior as seductive as a kiss or as addicting as a bag of potato chips? Once you go in for one, you can’t stop.

    This panel will shed light on what’s working – and what’s not – when it comes to using interactive tools to turn good health habits into actions people crave. We’ll explore the role of rewards and recognition; the forces such as love and fear; and the effectiveness of fun, enchantment and ambient integration.

    More specifically, we’ll take a close look at innovative programs that are helping to change people’s engagement in their health, and drive new habits; and we’ll also explore the successes of non-health programs such as Angry Birds for how we can translate their stickiness to health.

    And then we’ll talk about what happens when the “game” is over. Do people relapse? How can that be prevented – if at all?

The UnCollege: Learning Outside University
    Since 1980, the cost of college has risen more than 350% and the average student has more than $25,000 in debt. It used to be that each year of college correlated to an significant increase in lifetime earnings, but 44.4% of college graduates under the age of twenty-five are unemployed or working jobs that don’t require their degree. College teaches us conformity rather than innovation, rather than learning, and theory rather than application. Imagine if the millions of kids sitting in class started their own companies, their own causes, their own initiatives. Imagine if we approached learning in small groups like the French Salons, gathering to discuss, challenge, and support each other in changing the world. This may sound crazy, but I’m an unschooler. While my peers went to school, I started businesses, helped build a library, worked on political campaigns, lived in France, found mentors, and worked at a start-up. College isn't the only path to success.

WARNING: Are Online Reviews Bad for Your Health?
    Should you pick your doctor the same way you pick where to eat dinner? We are all consumers of health services. Our culture is exploding with information sharing and reviewing of services, and businesses are feeling anxious about the power of social media to damage their reputation. Yet the difference between which pizza to order and which plastic surgeon to trust is more than mere matter of words. Plus, as the numbers of angry and anonymous reviews grows, contentious battles are forming between healthcare providers and their patients, giving rise to an entire industry devoted to defending online reputations and fighting back against bogus posts. So what is the healthy balance? This panel will explore the legal rules at play (including copyright, free speech and patient privacy), the ethical obligations of healthcare providers (including confidentiality and the Hippocratic oath), and the innovative practices being developed in response.

#NoFailWhale: Tweet More, Drop Out Less
    Join Rey for an engaging, lively, beat-box-a-licious discussion about how the college classroom can be transformed into an engaging, collaborative learning community with the help of Twitter. Last year at SxSWi, Rey presented research to show that using Twitter can help increase student engagement and improve grades. This year, he’s back with fresh and compelling data to show that Twitter can not only be used to engage students, but improve understanding of course content and reduce the college dropout rate after the first year. Rey will summarize analyses of qualitative data describing how students interact on Twitter and what this means for the learning process; he’ll also provide quantitative data to explain how Twitter use affects acquisition of course content, engagement and persistence. In addition to presenting these results, Rey will discuss specific applications of Twitter technology higher education professionals can utilize to maximize educational good.

A Dr, Patient & Insurer Walk into a Social Network
    What happens next? Mobile, social and peer-to-peer tools are blowing up politics, news, and entertainment. But what about health care? Why is it that you can connect with everyone you know online except for your doctor or your health insurance company? Why is it easier to update your status on Facebook than it is to update your health history? Why do clipboards and paper forms still play a prominent role in the doctor's office? On the flip side, patients and caregivers who have their lives on the line are literally putting their lives online. Research shows that if you enable an environment in which people can share, they will. The benefits of that sharing will entice others to join and there is mounting evidence that sharing is, in fact, caring. When people connect with the right tool, the right advice, or the right person who is just ahead of them on a treatment path, their health outcomes improve. Everyone - clinicians, health insurance companies, patients -- know we need to figure this out. So what's going to happen in that bar? A fistfight? A love connection?

Are Wired Hospitals Losing the Patient Connection?

    From high-tech to high-touch: are wired hospitals losing the patient connection? This panel of nationally recognized leaders in healthcare has applied technology solutions to enhance quality of patient care across disciplines. The impact of mobile, remote monitoring, the Internet, video education, and patient portals on the patient experience will be discussed. With so many technology tools available is face-to-face interaction with the doctor necessary? What role can patient portals play in improving communication with patients? How do we place the right amount of value on the patient-doctor relationship (high-touch) while improving care delivery and efficiency? We turn to innovators in two healthcare segments – telemedicine and end-of-life care – to find answers, and to a leading provider of online solutions for healthcare to tell us how to effectively coordinate technology tools to improve the patient experience.

Three Innovative Approaches to Mobile Learning

    Ready to throw out the heavy textbooks and jump into the world of mobile learning? Yes, but how do you do it? Are you on the mobile learning train but feel the content and teachers aren't quite there yet? This panel will explore three different ways mobile learning is being incorporated today in the elementary school environment. Katherine Burdick from Learning A-Z argues that it is better to take the safe approach and blend traditional book learning, online, and mobile apps. Tom Wolf from eSpark Learning takes a bit bolder step and states that all after school programs should adopt mobile technology only. Finally, Matt Federoff from Vail School District has had teachers throw the textbook out the window as Vail has gone totally wireless making everyone operate off of laptops and iPads to the point that even the school buses are wireless. Angela Maeirs, author of Classroom Habitudes, serves as referee.

The Future of Digital Health
    Digital health is an emerging industry at the intersection of technology and health, radically changing how we access and use personal health information. It unites smartphones/tablets (new means of 24/7 access to information), with big data in the cloud (enabling personalization), game dynamics / mechanics (new engagement mechanisms), the increased engagement of physicians online (interactive doctors), and a vibrant social conversation about health. The panel, composed of pioneers in this new space (WIRED Magazine, HealthTap, Rock Health, Massive Health, CakeHealth, others), will explore why Digital Health is happening now, and how it is poised to forever transform how we access and use personal health information, how we manage our personal health, and how we interact with physicians using online/mobile applications. The panel will discuss the future of online/mobile health information, apps, and interactions, and disruptive emerging trends in the health space.

    A recent article in Health Affairs titled: “Games for Health: the Latest Tool in the Medical Care Arsenal” stated that “computer-based simulations and interactive programs are introducing a powerful new force in health care: FUN”. At the same time the article also noting that “new tools in health care are proliferating like viral spoors in a virtual pond.” While there is a growing proliferation of stand alone health games, this panel will consider the specific use of health games embedded in persistent avatar-based worlds where users manage the health and well being of their avatars as virtual substitutes for their own health and wellness. The panel will present actual data from use cases ranging from tweens to boomers, including what evidence is available to suggest that virtual behavior crosses into behavior in the real world. The panel will also discuss how new mobile health devices are likely to contribute to the blending of virtual and real worlds.

Gaming Tools Kids Want to Use
    Limited choices exist when kids seek to author, not just play, their own video games. If video games are on track to topple film as the last big media mammoth, how can we build a video game workforce that we need? Instead of reinforcing the divide between artists and programmers, can we get more kids interested in learning the complex work that game development involves, and foster a really great game development community? What kids like to use for game development may surprise you. Come hear what they like, why the like it, and how new tools need to be built to meet the demands of future game developers. Join a conversation about authorship, identity, creativity, and the tools kids really use for developing serious and social games. Gain insight on elements of game tools that kids would use--if they existed!

How Technology Is Killing (or Saving) the Lecture

    PowerPoint is boring. Today, professors are letting students pass virtual notes in class on Twitter. They're trying "clickers" that turn classrooms into game shows. They're videotaping classes to let students watch lecture reruns to cram for the test, or to share the knowledge with the world on YouTube. They're monitoring how many minutes students spend reading online textbooks to see who needs help.This session will explore some surprising ways tech is changing classroom dynamics and leading to the end of the lecture as we know it. While enthusiasts see the high-tech changes as a needed upgrade to a model that is hundreds of years old, others see dangers ahead. Is all that gear a distraction? Is academic freedom threatened when Web tools and video make public the once-sacred space of the classroom?Participants are asked to watch a 5-minute video (chronicle.com/lecturefail) before attending the talk, which will serve as a starting for an interactive presentation and discussion.

Language Technology and the Clinical Narrative
    Electronic health records have the potential for enormous good, but in order for them to live up to their full potential, information about patients -- their symptoms, diagnoses, allergic reactions, medical backgrounds, family histories -- must take the form of standardized, structured, easy-to-manipulate data. One obvious way to get there is to tightly structure the way that doctors create the medical record. As a result, physicians are under increasing pressure to abandon unrestricted natural language and the clinical narrative, and turn the medical documentation process into a jungle of pull-down menus, checkboxes, and restricted vocabularies. In this presentation I argue that the results could be catastrophic, I make the case for preserving the clinical narrative, and I argue for a practical way out of the dilemma: using natural language processing technology to produce the structured records we need, while still allowing physicians the freedom of unrestricted clinical language.
