Digital health is an emerging industry at the intersection of technology and health, radically changing how we access and use personal health information. It unites smartphones/tablets (new means of 24/7 access to information), with big data in the cloud (enabling personalization), game dynamics / mechanics (new engagement mechanisms), the increased engagement of physicians online (interactive doctors), and a vibrant social conversation about health. The panel, composed of pioneers in this new space (WIRED Magazine, HealthTap, Rock Health, Massive Health, CakeHealth, others), will explore why Digital Health is happening now, and how it is poised to forever transform how we access and use personal health information, how we manage our personal health, and how we interact with physicians using online/mobile applications. The panel will discuss the future of online/mobile health information, apps, and interactions, and disruptive emerging trends in the health space.
Surveys regularly show 80% of Americans consider themselves religious or spiritual. How do religion and faith play out online, and how are organizations trying to engage diverse faith audiences? In this panel, 3 highly successful faith organizations and the interactive agency that has supported them will discuss their success and frustrations as they try to bridge the digital and the divine. Patheos will share their expertise in social media engagement and talk about how to monetize content in the faith space without losing your soul. Odyssey Networks will show how they are using multiple applications, including a mobile app, to distribute content. Interfaith Youth Core (IFYC) will discuss their new digital strategies, via their Webby-nominated website and social media platforms. Digitaria will bring its extensive interactive knowledge and the new technologies they use for both non-profit and Fortune 500 clients to drive engagement and dynamic user experiences.
The digital era has taken media in Latin America by surprise. While some media groups jumped in right away, others are still trying to decide how to (or if they should) join the digital and Social Media sphere. At the same time, new social media are approaching the Web audience by delivering relevant, timely and sometimes ad-free content. For example, YouTube recently broadcast the entire Copa America (a very popular regional soccer tournament) using a dedicated channel on its website, thus challenging the TV monopolies in several countries of the region.
This session will focus on presenting the various approaches to Web 2.0 in media across Latin America. Attendees will gain a better perspective on demographic, political and cultural differences within the region, and the correlation with the main media groups accross the various countries. The session will include success stories to provide a more thorough picture.
