How social software can improve the Healthcare Industry

View Comments

Through the power of Dogear, I found the following video which shows Bob Picciano, General Manager of Lotus, presenting the collaborative suite of Lotus solutions.

The presentation starts talking about information overload and how our collaboration software addresses that problem. Here's a brief summary:

  • 05:40 - Bob starts by showing Atlas for Lotus Connections and how it allows you to visualize your network and where information may be getting lost.
  • 07:00 - Bob mentions the importance of having mobile access to your connections and how Lotus Connections
  • 10:50 - Ron Sebastian starts with a demo of Lotus Connections
  • 12:55 - Ron demonstrates the power of Lotus Connections' SOA architecture. He shows how a Line of Business application has been built. It's a Healthcare application that happens to be built on WebSphere Portal.
  • 13:15 - See how you can feature certain Dr's blogs and continue to see the person card everywhere
  • 13:40 - See how you can easily search for providers / doctors based on their expertise (i.e. sports injury)
  • 14:00 - Start chatting in real-time with a nurse (even via VoIP if Instant Messaging is not enough)!
  • 14:45 - Find out more about your potential provider by looking at his blog, learning from their patients, even form a community with others
  • 16:15 - See how you can access all this information from your BlackBerry

Here's the video:


As a bonus, at 22:30 you see how Boeing used Lotus Mashups to assist during the Katrina disaster. You'll see how easy it is to create widgets which can also run on Lotus Connections.

I hope this demo helps you see how the possibilities are endless with social software!
