Six Health 2.0 firms reinvent doctor-patient ties » VentureBeat (UPDATED: Added screenshots and a link to video of the Myca patient-record interface.)The just-concluded Health 2.0 Conference in San Diego showcased some 30-odd startups and Web sites — with dozens more in the audience — all intent on using the Internet to improve patient care, streamline healthcare practices and bolster the ability of individuals to take charge of their own medical treatment. There’s lots more to say, and I hope to do so over the next few days. For now, though, I want to highlight six startups with some big, and very different, ideas for reinventing the doctor-patient relationship — everything from making it deeper and more convenient to practically doing away with it altogether. Visualize your medical records, keep your doctor on call Calling up a patient’s record displays her major health problem — asthma, say — surrounded by floating word tags for each of her other medical conditions, each sized larger or smaller depending on its severity.

The Top 50 Productivity Blogs (most of which you haven’t heard about) I love productivity blogs — they’re probably my greatest waste of time. But as they teach me to better use my time, I don’t consider it a waste. If you like reading about productivity, goals, habits, GTD, time management and other such topics, I’ve compiled a list of the best productivity sites for your perusal. Now, you might not like all of these, but there are some real gems here — and many of them aren’t that well known. Here’s the list: The A List The Rest of Us (not in any order) This list isn’t intended to be comprehensive. If you liked this article, please bookmark it on or vote for it on Digg!

Evernote Now this is a pitch I can relate to. I was talking to Phil Libin, the new CEO of Evernote, and he was selling me on the new Web-based version of the note-taking app his company makes. Libin was giving me the big picture: Evernote is "an extension of memory." It's an "external brain." The previous version of Evernote (which I used for about two years, before switching to OneNote), was very good at recording a "river of notes." The new Evernote, version 3, is a free suite of tools that let you access one synchronized database of notes from a desktop (PC or Mac), the Evernote Web site, directly off a USB stick, or from a mobile device. The app is still a great tool for recording text notes, either typed or written (on a tablet PC). What's really cool, though, is Evernote's affinity for visual notes. I took some camera phone shots of whiteboards and it did a surprisingly good job of indexing the text. I'm smitten by Evernote 3.0.

Gmail Search Bookmarklet Mihai's saved searches greasemonkey script is great, but in my experience it imposes a noticable overhead on every gmail operation, so I decided to re-create the saved search feature using a bookmark (I think the overhead has been fixed in new versions of the scripts, but my version still has the advantage that it provides one-click access to your searches when you're not already in gmail). It's possible (but not straightforward) to make a normal bookmark that links to a gmail search, but this is not ideal because it reloads the full page and all the javascript, which makes it slow if you're already in gmail. A javascript bookmarklet can reach into the page and submit the form directly, avoiding the overhead. This form will generate a customized bookmarklet for a query of your choice (only tested in firefox).
