Insights on the Rise and Future of Participatory Health 2.0 for Physicians and Podiatrists*

[What is it – How it works]

By Dr. David Edward Marcinko; MBA, CMP

By Professor Hope Rachel Hetico; RN, MHA, CPQH, CMP



In 1995, the primary use of the internet was e-mail for the masses. Next, doctors linked to hospitals and MCOs for clinical information and insurance benefits coverage. Today, physicians are finding deeper avenues for the Internet and cloud computing:

  • Queries from patients, newsletters, podcasts and educational links.
  • Continuing education, consultations and professional presentations.
  • Nurse connectivity and lab results with alerts for abnormal values.
  • Computerized Physician Order Entry Systems.
  • Picture Archiving and Communication systems and clinical imaging.
  • Appointments, open scheduling digital transcription services and administration.
  • eMRs and clinical groupware, etc


The broad term eHealth was introduced in 2000. It refers to the use of computers, networks and the internet to store and manage medical records, instead of paper files. According to the WHO, it refers to components delivered, enabled and supported through the use of technology. It may involve administrative, financial and clinical communication between providers, patients and payers; like referrals and e-prescribing. More formally, eHealth provides stakeholder access to databases, knowledge resources, checklists and decision support tools to guide healthcare service delivery. https://healthcarefinancials.wordpress.com/?page_id=21352&preview=true

But, ever since the term “web 2.0″ was first used in 2004, there has been much definitional obscurity about its’ true impact in medicine. And, although no one’s defined it clearly, we think the health-on-the-internet evolution falls into 3 categories.


Health 1.0

This is the dying healthcare system of today. Information is communicated from doctors to patients. It is a basic B2C [business-to-consumer] website as the internet became one big encyclopedia by aggregating knowledge silos. Some doctors maintain websites, others do not. Nevertheless, Health 1.0 has a command and control hierarchy; doctors on top of the pyramid, patients on the bottom.

Health 2.0

According to Matthew Holt [personal communication] Healthcare 2.0 may be defined as:

“The foundation of healthcare 2.0 is information exchange plus technology. It employs user-generated content, social networks and decision support tools to address the problems of inaccessible, fragmentary or unusable health care information. Healthcare 2.0 connects users to new kinds of information, fundamentally changing the consumer experience (e.g., buying insurance or deciding on/managing treatment), clinical decision-making (e.g., risk identification or use of best practices) and business processes (e.g., supply-chain management or business analytics)”.

And so, if Health 1.0 was a static book, Health 2.0 is a dynamic discussion http://www.health2advisors.com

Example: The power of the internet is illustrated in the phenomenon of “crowd-sourcing.” In this context, the term means to harvest the reach of social networking [wisdom of crowds] to solve a problem. A knowledge seeker asks a question and participants respond.  For example, readers can participate on the www.MedicalExecutivePost.com or www.BusinessofMedicalPractice.com sites to improve the administration of any medical practice. And, www.PodiatryPrep.com is an example of how podiatrists connect for global board certification assistance.

Health 2.0; plus

The Dictionary of Health Insurance and Managed Care defines this emerging hybrid as a bridge uniting the philosophy of contemporary Health 2.0 with futuristic Health 3.0 technologies. Cisco System’s HealthPresence is one example developed in 2010, by Dr. T. Warner Hudson. Using the network as a platform, HealthPresence combines video, audio and information to create an environment similar to what patients experience when they visit their own doctor.


And, firms like 23andMe, Navigenics, DeCodeMe, CollabRx and Cure Together, hope that genomics and aggregated patient experiences will advance fast enough so the current epidemic of “more diagnosis with less ability to change outcomes” will morph into one where knowing your  future averts adverse medical consequences.

Health 3.0

Soon, patients will not only be seeking information; but actionable intelligence – whether it is artificial or real. Patients will communicate almost as with another patient or doctor. The internet won’t just blindly do what we tell it to do – it will think and represent some amazing opportunities. For example, imagine your toilet running a SMAC 20 and then being instantly notified of the results by your smart phone? Or; use your iPhone to send pictures and streaming videos of conditions for a second opinion www.KnockingLive.com
