Lucien Engelen sur Twitter : "Will be speaking at Cannes Health Lions 2015... Health 1.0, 2.0, 3.0: today’s flow of information has changed what’s possible.

This 51 second animation accompanies my article last week in the BMJ, “From Patient Centred to People Powered: Autonomy on the Rise.”

Health 1.0, 2.0, 3.0: today’s flow of information has changed what’s possible

The video expresses, concisely, a slide that for years I’ve presented in 3-5 minutes. It’s an idea first published back in 2010 by Lucien Engelen, during the same time period when he was preparing for the TEDx Maastricht event in April 2011 where I spoke. It shows how the flow of valuable information has changed, which makes new things possible, as in all other parts of life. From the BMJ article: The change is illustrated by a visual model created five years ago by Lucien Engelen at Radboud University Medical Center in the Netherlands and Marco Derksen.

TEDMEDathens : Live now @TEDMEDATHENS Ioannis... A Cancer Diagnosis Involves the Whole Family Not Just the Patient. FutureMed: Hanging out with smartest people in healthcare. By Patricia Salber Last fall, I decided to splurge on tuition for FutureMed (FM), Singularity University’s week long celebration of all things cutting edge in healthcare and bioscience.

FutureMed: Hanging out with smartest people in healthcare

It is only day four of the six day course and already my brain is stuffed with enough info on innovation to last a life time. Just when I think it can’t get any better, FM rolls out a new speaker on yet another mind-boggling topic: cancer genomics, synthetic biology, robotics, the impact of virtual reality on behavior, exponential thinking, and more. Unbelievable…and fun. We have had the privilege of being inspired by Peter Diamandis, founder of the X-Prize and co-founder (together with Ray Kurzweil) of Singularity University.

Frequent Chocolate Consumption Linked to Lower BMI. By Chippy YanEpoch Times Staff Created: April 9, 2012 Last Updated: July 24, 2012 Research finds that people who eat chocolate more often have a lower body mass index, despite consuming more calories. (Cat Rooney/The Epoch Times) More frequent chocolate consumption is linked to lower body mass index (BMI), recent findings from the University of California–San Diego (UCSD) show. Chocolate has already been found to have associations with lowered blood pressure, cholesterol levels, and improved insulin sensitivity.
