Sitting next to +Ronan Kavanagh in a nice French restaurant after the first day of the Doctors 2.0 conference, he commented, in his lovely Irish brogue, “You know, at our age we are not supposed to have the opportunity to make so many new friends. But look at this table, all brought together by a common bond.” 

What great fortune, to be sharing dinner with six interesting people who I’d had the fortune to meet on Twitter during the last year. The cool thing was–they were every bit as awesome IRL (in real life) as they are on line. All of us share a passion for making the patient experience better using digital tools–gamification, the quantified self, video patient information, social media for physicians and patients, etc. And while I didn’t meet John Brownlee on Twitter, he was the other common bond amongst us; the CEO and founder of ClearMD who organized the meal.


The Doctors 2.0 conference brought doctors, patients and entrepreneurs together in an incredible setting, la Cité Universitaire:


We heard from healthcare startups, e-patients, pharma, doctors and medical futurists among others while networking and eating French snacks. Maybe it was the wine, but when the two day conference was over, I was left with a hopeful feeling that patients, doctors and healthcare entities who put patients first can brainstorm and make a difference for the better in patient lives.
