The Health 2.0 conference is the chosen forum for new health IT technology launches and is attended by established companies to preview the latest innovations improving patient care.

“Social health communities are not ’one size fits all',” remarked Ms. Reynales. “I look forward to sharing Wellness Layers’ latest web and mobile social innovations at Health 2.0 and show how we truly cradle the details and connect the right parts in order to establish the most valuable patient and customer community portals for each stakeholder. In the end, the higher the value we provide and the more specific we can be, as far as the user experience, the better we can help companies and care providers scale and extend care to improve health.”

According to Matthew Holt, Health 2.0 co-founder, “Health 2.0 is known for its ground-breaking technology demos from health IT trailblazers and we believe Wellness Layers’ presentation will motivate seasoned health IT veterans, empower newbies, and provide guidance for those in the trenches.”
