co·her·ence   (k-hîrns, -hr-) The working definitions for coherence range from the tangible to the abstract, from the literal to the figurative, from the cosmic  to the cosmetic. Our aim at this conference is to apply them to real-world issues facing people from all walks of life as we enter the era of Health 2.0. Bring your own brain!

This article Concept Creation, Coherence, and Cohesion  gave us this version of it...  

[coherence] - relating the new concept to an element of the conceptual schema



The conceptual schema we're exploring like these blind men touching the elephant here is how coherence can be applied to the emerging world of Health 2.0 going forward. This transcends the dry clinical and academic arguments and gets into the more raw terrain of economics, memetics, epigenetics and other socially-based fields that Health 2.0 will bump into as it evolves. So we're calling all cars..

What the heck is Health 2.0?

May 14th, 2010 by Cari Reisinger

Health 2.0

This week’s caller is Dr. Mark Filippi, an eclectic and cutting edge chiropractor/radio host, who wanted to dive into the topic of Health 2.0 with Kathleen.  Or, in layman’s terms…the overall health conversation on the Web.

Is it a good thing or a bad thing that we can Google symptoms and self-diagnose before we see a doctor?  With so many resources floating out there, how do we get solid, trust-worthy health info?  It’s actually a topic that’s too big for 8-minutes, and we’ll definitely be returning to this conversation, but for now listen to Kathleen and Dr. Filippi’s hot and bothered Health 2.0 convo:
