Microsoft Health Tech Today launches season two on October 5th

I invite you to join us on October 5th for the launch of the second season of Microsoft Health Tech Today.  My special quest is Todd Park, CTO for the US Department of Health and Human Services.  Mr. Park takes us on a tour of the government’s new web site that connects citizens to information about health insurance options and their cost.  He explains how President Obama reacted when he first saw the new site, and why Mr. Obama made history by what he did next.

Finding health insurance can be a hassle, and finding a plan that is just right for you and your family is a big decision especially considering the cost of health insurance these days.  When I first laid eyes on www.healthcare.gov I knew we just had to find out more on Health Tech Today and share it with our viewers.  Join us on October 5th and see the interview that everyone will be talking about.  To say Mr. Park is enthusiastic would be an understatement!

Health Tech Today is the on-line video series at the intersection of health and information technology.  In its second season, Health Tech Today will present a new program segment each week.  Special thanks to Panasonic for their sponsorship of our programs in October.

Watch the promo above, and join us on October 5th.

Bill Crounse, MD    Senior Director, Worldwide Health      Microsoft
