I will be part of a panel on self-tracking at the Health Datapalooza in Washington, DC, on Tuesday. My fellow panelists include Naveen Selvadurai, a co-founder of Foursquare; Roger Magoulas, the director of market research at O’Reilly Media; Jodi Daniel, director of the Office of Policy and Planning at the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology; and Abdul Shaikh of National Cancer Institute’s Health Communication and Informatics Research Branch.
Naveen wrote an intriguing essay on the topic:
Jodi shared this page, part of the ONC’s vision for putting consumers at the center of health care:
Here’s a retrospective of essays I’ve written about tracking and the Datapalooza:
- Unpacking self-tracking (2012) – a post which led directly to a new series of survey questions, the results of which can be found in the report, “Tracking for Health” or in my speech, “The e is for engagement“
- How can a community organization tap into the health dev craze? (2011)
- Making Health Data Sing (Even If It’s A Familiar Song) (2010)
Watch for tweets with the tag #HDPalooza if you can’t be part of the event in person.
