HealthCamp SFBay was a HUGE success!! YNIO was glad to be part of it!

HealthCamp SFBay was held this week at Kaiser Permanente's Garfield Innovation Center in San Leandro, CA.

WOW! What an incredible facility! 35,000 sq ft of innovation location- full clinical work-study stations that can be rearranged in minutes to study the effects of work environment on efficiency, safetey and patient experience and outcomes. GENIUS!!  Kudos to KP and their forward thinking innovators!

The HealthCamp itself was a wonderfully eclectic mix of E-Patients, Healthcare aficionados, care product innovators and industry types all coming together to explore new ideas in healthcare and to revisit some old assumptions.

The blend of Kaiser Permanente and the Health 2.0 accelerator as sponsors was a refreshing blend of visionaries and practitioners in the same room- on the same page.

A big thanks to Dr. Yan Chow and his amazing team at Kaiser for hosting us and a big round of applause for Julie Murchinson of the Health 2.0 Accelerator for organizing another successful HealthCamp. Julie's team was incredible and a big thanks to all who helped run the show!! Go Green Shirts!! was pleased and proud to sponsor such an important event and will cherish our new friends and ways of thinking.
