Sketchnotes & Reflections from Digital Health Summer Summit SF

Link to flickr album for Sketchnotes from Digital Health Summer Summit SF

The Digital Health Summer Summit San Francisco may be over, but the conversations linger.  Common themes throughout were the emphasis on building TRUST, relationships, good business strategies, providing VALUE and OUTCOMES.  Many exciting things on the horizon in this high growth area.  There is no shortage of interest or need, but a lack of products that deliver on their promises.  Opportunities abound for those who want to dive in.  Partnerships between private and public sector, entrepreneurs and established businesses and organizations.  It will be exciting to see where this leads.  As Dr. Aenor Sawyer of UCSF pointed out, the changing demographics will entice us to appeal to the geri-actives.  Let’s get creative and innovative in solutions for the future.

Thanks to Robin Raskin for inviting me.  Jill Gilbert, you did a phenomenal job even in your glowing state. I look forward to seeing you in Vegas at CES when I have the results of my wearables and presence of mind study to share.  In the meantime, keep innovating, sharing, learning and doing with each other!

Sketchnotes from WearableWorld GlazedCon 2014

Link to flickr album for Sketchnotes from GlazedCon

The conference is over, great conversations with exciting players in the wearable tech space. They covered development, design, business, communication, engagement, research, the future and more. I loved scribing this event, as the content feeds my current passion for wearables and their potential. My PhD dissertation study seems to be falling perfectly in terms of timing and need for answer seem burning questions in this community. I will be looking at the relationship between wearables and presence of mind; (both mindfulness and presence with others) for my dissertation study. But the interest is so high for data on the effectiveness and impact of these devices, that there is room for many more studies with a wider scope when I finish.

If I missed you there and you are interested in the study, please do not hesitate to reach out either here or directly at heidi (at)  I am still accepting other monitor/alert category devices to be part of the initial study.

With Apple announcing the Health Book at WWDC (the Apple developers conference) this week, perhaps there is finally a space for us to collect all this data in one place.

Thanks to Wearable World for hosting such a great event, Redg Snodgrass you are a dear and I loved your team! Can’t wait to test out my gifts from the generous Sonny Vu of Misfits and Brian Dunham of OhMiBod.  You guys are the best!  I am so glad you are enjoying the sketchnotes. The Glazed2014 Album on Flickr is for sharing, so please feel free to embed and use the images to spread the word on the great work you all are doing (Just don’t forget attribution, please).
