I’m not going to blog on my experience at last week’s Third Healthcare Blogging & Social Media Summit in Chicago and the Health 2.0 Conference in San Francisco, since so many other bloggers (including the organizers of both events) have already done so.
Instead, I’ll give you a list of companies that presented or otherwise had a presence at the events. Some you’ve no doubt heard of, others might be new. Some have workable business models, others don’t. Some are bankrolled by Steve Case, but most aren’t.
File this away and see how many are around at this time next year, and if any are actually thriving. (OK, I have a feeling Microsoft’s business model is pretty solid, but there was a reason why venture capitalists were busy at the Health 2.0 conference.)
An asterisk denotes sites that recently launched or are still in beta. You will notice quite a few asterisks in this list.

Health Heroes Network
* Newly released or in beta
I will give you one other highlight of the San Francisco conference: Seeing J.D. Kleinke of Omnimedix Institute and Adam Bosworth, just “relieved of his duties” at Google, chatting. I was hoping to get the two of them together with Scott Shreeve, late of Medsphere, for a podcast, so each could listen to my long-winded question and then give me a terse, “I’m not allowed to comment” due to pending litigation or other contractual obligation. Perhaps next time.
