Health 2.0 – A One Stop Shop for the Quantified Self
Health 2.0 Europe took place at the Charité University Hospital in Berlin, Germany from the 27th to the 28th October 2011.
“Berlin combines the culture of New York, the traffic system of Tokyo, the nature of Seattle and the history of, well, Berlin.” (Hiroshi Motomura, UCLA Professor)

Quantified Self and the QUENTIQ Health Plattform
The QUENTIQ Health Platform lets people track and benchmark their personal health data. We make use of gamification and social media principles to motivate users to improve their health.
With QUENTIQ a user can self-track all his measurable biometric data inputs. Following the three key pillars: “My Emotions”, “My Activities”, “My Body” reflect the QUENTIQ Health Score.
It tracks the data in real-time by incorporating data from scales, blood pressure monitors, smartphones and fitness tracking devices.
1) “My Emotions” Quality of Life (Happy, Stressed, etc)
(2) “My Activities” (physical workouts) can be added by a “Manual Entry”, directly over the “Tracker App” for smartphones or it can be imported from a external file from e.g. Polar.
(3) “My Body” (Weight, Body Dimensions, BMI, Blood Pressure, Lipids, Glucose) – Medical History (Questionnaire regarding Diseases, Diabetes, Stroke, etc) – Lifestyle (Questionnaire regarding Cigarettes, Alcohol, etc)
That gets turned into a unique QUENTIQ Health Score which is a a indicator of the individual’s current health status.
Later this data can be summarized by visualizations, cross-referenced and the discovery of correlations can start. This helps to live a more aware healthier life.
Health 2.0 Europe Agenda
Health 2.0 Europe integrates the best of European web/mobile based technologies, and compares, contrasts and contextualizes them with leading examples of Health 2.0 from around the world. We’ll be seeing what works in the context of Europe’s evolving healthcare systems, and what the “boundary-less” online world means for consumers and physicians working in distinct healthcare systems – all in our lauded format of “rapid-fire” technology demos, provocative keynotes, and interactive discussions: Patient and physician social networks Search & content Consumer and provider tools Health promotion and wellness 2.0 Privacy, data, trust Government as a stakeholder
