About our project



NEW REWARDS: The famous artist and patient advocate, Regina Holiday, of the Walking Gallery has offered original paintings for our backers. See below and to the right for details!

We created the Doctor 2.0 Conference in order to discuss and drive innovation in medicine from the Physician’s perspective. While this is our main focus, without the patient in the conversation it is easy to lose sight of the ultimate person with a stake in the innovation: The Patient. This is why every year since we founded this conference we have opened up free access to leading patient advocates and thought leaders, people like Regina Holliday and ePatient Dave Debronkhart. In 2013, with your help, we now are offering Patient Travel Scholarships as well to help get these important voices to our midst. Please support our cause by choosing a donation level at the right.

To learn more about our conference or to attend yourself as a Physician or Exhibitor, please visit our main Doctors 2.0 site.

Why the Patient Voice is So Important in Healthcare Discussions

If you’re a patient out there (and unfortunately, who hasn’t been?), you want your doctors and other healthcare professionals to have all the right information at their fingertips— about you and about the latest in medical technologies. And you want to be able to have a conversation about all this with your doctor!

We’re bringing all the healthcare stakeholders together to make things MOVE. That’s what Doctors 2.0 & You is all about.

Doctors 2.0 is an international conference, taking place for the 3rd time in Paris on June 6-7 and it’s PATIENT INCLUSIVE.

Yes, that’s right. We want patients from all over the world to attend. We’re making it free for patients to attend, but getting patients to Paris is the hard part. So, we’re raising money to make sure patients like you can come to Paris…and attend the conference!

This Conference is Important

Doctors 2.0 & You is the only European event dedicated to bringing physicians into the picture, getting them to engage with web 2.0 tools & social media.

And Doctors 2.0 & You is the only conference that really gives the floor to Patients — as advisors in the parallel sessions, and as members of our jury, judging posters and exciting start-ups.

The conference will also offer a special look at the impact of the latest technologies, from mobile apps to connected objects, and social media and how they are affecting the traditional doctor-patient relationship.

Details of the Conference

Last year the conference drew over 400 attendees from over 26 different countries! The congress takes place in Paris over two days with 22 hours of programming. (That’s a lot!)

Patients who once connected mainly through email discussion groups and chat rooms will be talking about the new virtual communities that enable them to share information about treatment and coping IN PERSON! This is the chance for them build a personal network of friends and to discover how much they can accomplish through the Doctors 2.0 & You network.

They’ll talk about their blogs, podcasts, and the use of WebTV, Serious Games (what’s that?), and Big Data (lots of numbers). As with previous years, there will be plenary sessions, workshops and keynotes. There will also be a networking evening between the two days. That’s intense.

AND they’ll get to do this with and in front of doctors, techies, and industry & government insurers from all over the world!

Why We’re on MedStartr

We need more patients! There are literally hundreds of ePatients out there who want to attend. It takes about $2000 for a patient to travel to Paris from another continent and cover their accommodation.

How We Help Patients

Doctors 2.0 & You empowers patients with a voice and with knowledge. Our conference motto? “Nothing about me, without me”.

The Power of E-Patients

The E stands for: emancipated, empowered, enabled, expert, engaged.

We need you to help patients gain the E, by donating to the travel fund! It is their experiences and passion that drives change and inspires innovation.

How We Help Doctors

Our conference gives doctors real time interaction with colleagues, with active patients, with tech experts, and with the tools themselves. E-patients provide feedback for new technologies and new ways of working together.

We believe that this collaboration and instant feedback is what drives change and progress in a sustainable way. What’s at stake? The quality of care.

How We Help Hospitals & Institutions

This is all about engagement and the quality of care. Getting feedback and input from patients and doctors is key for all medical facilities. Learn what is important to your patients and drive both business and quality of care up!

How We Help Our Partners

Aside from the satisfaction of helping ePatients travel to THE web 2.0 conference of the year, by donating to the fund, partners will gain extra visibility!

Our conference receives full social media exposure. In 2012, our #doctors2.0 hashtag received over 5,200 mentions with an estimated reach of 8.9 million people.

Our sponsors will receive exposure across all media formats including web, mobile, table, in print and on television where we have over 22 hours of unique programming. Imagine your company’s name or institution’s logo all around the room!

We attracted participants from 26 countries last year and fully expect that to rise to over 40 this year. In 2012 we attracted 27 media partners and anticipate over 30 attending this year.

Our conference blog is also syndicated worldwide.

How We’ll Spend Your Contributions

These contributions will only be for the patients’ Travel Fund. Ideally, we’d like to offer 24 E-patient grants.

How Do These Lucky Patients Get Chosen?

A patient selection panel will review the applications and make judgments based on the impact a patient has in their community and to the wider world.

We’re looking for patients who are really trying to make a difference. Do they use social media? If so, how? Do they engage with the many layers of the healthcare industry? And finally, we try and gauge what they’re looking to gain from the conference.
