COPE Today is pleased to announce its CEO, Tania S. Malik, J.D., will present “The Virtual Couch: Online Behavioral Health,” at the Health 2.0 conference to be held Sept. 25-27, 2011 in San Francisco.
The Health 2.0 conference is the chosen forum for the hottest health IT technology launches and is attended by established companies to preview the latest innovations improving patient care and scout new talent. Software developers, physicians, start-up companies, global corporations, HIT vendors, payers, providers, and health care leaders gather each year to ensure they are the first to see new, innovative health technologies before they are introduced to the rest of the world.
Malik is a lawyer by trade and an entrepreneur by practice. She started several businesses over the past decade involving patient care and services over the Internet, but her long-term goal has always been to create a portal where individuals can seek treatment for emotional well-being over the Internet. She will be speaking during The Virtual Couch: Online Behavioral Health session on September 26, 2011 at 2pm and will examine how COPE Today provides confidential, accessible, and affordable online therapy via live chat, video conference, telephone, and secure messaging.
The Health 2.0 community consists of hundreds of organizations and thousands of inventors. Well over 1,000 of those IT and health care professionals are expected to attend the Health 2.0 conference, during which dozens of health pioneers will demonstrate how they are using technology to advance the delivery of health care. The conference agenda may be viewed here or you can follow #health2con on Twitter for the latest conference news.
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 Tania Malik’s presentation will motivate seasoned health IT veterans, empower newbies, and provide guidance for those in the trenches.”
