  • Atkinson, Benjamin I'm working on a project to "crowd-source" medical treatments. It's a web platform to enable physicians to build, distribute and collect feedback on treatment protocol. Taking a cue from John Wennberg, I believe that unwarranted treatment variation is the result of the medical free-agent model. I hope to build a tool to facilitate the use of physician extenders and enable dialog and innovation. Comments and suggestions are welcome!

And the 2.0 part of it all is that doctors can enhance their own profiles with detailed information about their practices, insurance accepted, photos, forms, even online appointment scheduling. On the flip side, patients will soon be able to provide referrals and testimonials about their doctors. You can read my blog here.

As father of ISO TC 215 on health Informatics, former Chair of ANSI HISB and ASTM E31, CORBAmed, and many other healthcare informatics standards organizations, my work has put me often at the center of health informatics developments. I was Chair of the Standards Committee for Personal/Consumer health Records and have been speaking for years about the third development (Chinese Medicine being the first, Western Medicine being the second), I have been calling it Personal Health Information Management. Whether it is called patient-centered, or health 2.0, or something else doesn't matter. Our Institute intends to focus on these issues at the TEPR 2008 conference to be held in May 2008.
