Berlin, Germany, July 14, 2011 – Health 2.0 Europe, a conference dedicated to how Web 2.0 tools, data and social media are transforming healthcare systems in Europe, announced that its second annual event will take place on October 27-28, 2011 in Berlin, Germany. Co-hosted with partner K.I.T. Group, this second edition will reconvene leaders and stakeholders in the Health 2.0 community for a day and a half of technology demos, networking and brainstorming.

Health 2.0 Europe 2011 will present the latest thinking about content, search & communities, data utility layer and analytics, provider and consumer tools for care management, and financing, mobile devices, smart phones and ‘unplatforms’ in a European context. In particular, the conference will address what a ‘boundary-less’ online world means for consumers and physicians working in different healthcare systems. Technologies that are shaping the future of European healthcare will be featured in live demonstrations, along with special videos, keynotes and interactive sessions.

In addition, during Launch!, a signature part of all Health 2.0 conferences, start-ups will demo innovative technologies. The call for speakers is open.

“Doctors, patients, and health care organizations are adopting a new generation of online and mobile technologies, and are fundamentally changing the way health care works,” said Indu Subaiya, co-chairman and CEO of Health 2.0. “This is particularly fascinating with Europe, given each country’s different system, language, and methods.”

“We’re thrilled to be bringing Health 2.0 Europe to Berlin. And we’ll again be contrasting and contextualizing the best of European health technology,” said Matthew Holt, co-chairman of Health 2.0.

“Health 2.0 is more than a conference: it is a network, a community, and a complementary suite of activities tailored for the Health 2.0 community,” added Pascal Lardier, international director at Health 2.0.

First held in San Francisco in 2007, the annual Health 2.0 conferences are rapidly expanding to other continents as the use of web and mobile technologies in health grows worldwide. Its inaugural European event was held in Paris, France in April 2010 and saw over 500 attendees. Future conferences are planned for countries including India and China, all featuring Health 2.0’s unique format.
