Pre-Conference Events for Friday Sept 28, 2012:
7:00 AM – Breakfast/Coffee
8:00 AM – Welcoming remarks – Larry Chu, MD, Executive Director Medicine X
8:05 AM – Opening keynote address – What is the Future of Self-Tracking? Susannah Fox, Pew Internet & American Life Project
Susannah Fox studies the cultural shifts taking place at the intersection of technology and health care. Her research has documented the social life of health information, the concept of peer-to-peer healthcare, and the role of the internet amongpeople living with chronic disease. The best summary of Fox’s research can be found in this video of her speech, The Power of Mobile, or this at-a-glance guide. Fox contributes to a health care blog, e-patients.net, and you can follow her on Twitter:@SusannahFox. Susannah Fox will discuss the Project’s latest survey results and what the future might hold.
8:35 AM – Part 1: Meet the health self-trackers. Why do they self-track?
These speakers first engaged in the process of self-tracking because chronic health issues were interfering with their quality of life. They sought medical care and then gradually realized that a deeper understanding of their own body was necessary to more completely address their illness and the potential for a cure. It is that journey—what life was like before, how they realized they needed to be more engaged in “debugging” their own health situation, what they experienced through the process of self-tracking, and what life is like now, that will be captured by these speakers.

9:50 AM – Break
10:20 AM – Part 2: How do we spread opportunities for personal health self-tracking?
Self-tracking provides opportunities to collect health information and share that information with others with the aim to gain insights into personal health issues. What are the challenges facing self-tracking of personal health information? How can patients best work with their entire health care team to incorporate self-tracking into their care? How do we spread opportunities for personal health self-tracking beyond niche communities?

11:55 AM – Part 3: How can groups self-track together? Leveraging the power of groups.
What happens when groups of patients self-track their health information together? How can we use the synergies of groups of patients to gain insights about health and disease that can be generalizable to larger populations? What are the technological barriers that limit self-tracking in groups? How can group self-tracking data be analyzed, visualized, and generalized?
