I recently attended the Health 2.0 conference in San Francisco. One of the companies that was highlighted at the meeting was ‘American Well’. An impressive company that has created an online care system that allows instant connection between a patient and a provider. Using a web cam and VOIP technology the concept of online care becomes fairly straightforward. Their current partners include Blue Shield, Blue Cross, Optum Health and Tri West Healthcare Alliance. Check them out at http://www.americanwell.com. I will be following them very closely as I think this space in healthcare is set for huge expansion.
