Transform Day 2 – New Perspectives, Elephants in the Room

Transform attendees talking in Peace Plaza during reception
Day Two at Transform 2012 started with new perspectives on "what health is," "design through the eyes of the patient," and "health care in the era of big data." Later in the day, it was time to address the Elephants in the Room -- end-of-life decisions, and suicide among teens and college students. Then speakers opined about Connecting for Change, making tele-health the norm in health care, and bringing innovation and technology to the underserved, among other topics.

Transformers on the street

Although it wasn't nearly as busy as the Transform 2012 Twitter stream, the Transform video booth did manage to lure a few folks willing to share their impressions about the symposium and what they're taking back to the real world after Transform is over. Watch the video.
