About our project

Health Innovation Gets its Own Channel –

- If there existed a healthcare innovation channel, would you watch it?
- Would you want to broadcast on it?
- Do you have a show you would like to syndicate on it?

…if your answer to any of these questions is yes, then please support this project because your support will help us build a channel for you!

Update: Post HIMSS13

It is Done! With over 30 hours of interviews and footage from our first week of operation, the site is full of amazing content. We are still crowdsourcing content and Crowdfunding support, selling show slots, ad space and more. Please support your and tell us what you would like to see in the comments section. Thank you for your generous support!

Who are we?

We’re an independent association of respected, professional journalists, producers, bloggers and e-patient health activists who have joined forces to create the first ever Health Innovation Broadcast Channel. We did this just prior to the HIMSS 2013 Conference, a meeting of more than 40,000 healthcare IT professionals. Now, we are continuing the mission to create a sustainable independent resource, that is available for all healthcare innovators everywhere.

Founding members include Gregg Masters of XanateMedia, Nate DiNiro of Open Affairs Television, Pat Salber of The Doctor Weighs In and Health Tech Hatch and Alex Fair of MedStartr, Health 2.0 NYC and FairCareMD. Coverage of the conference and the ‘innovation conversation’ began on Sunday, March 3 2013 with “HIMSS’13 Highlights” and continues for events all over the world.

If this is a TV Channel, Who are the Stars?

Our subject matter is Health Innovation – so if you are a health innovator, activated patient, empowered early adopter physician, or any organization doing something very cool, YOU ARE THE STAR. Here are some of the Stars of our network already:

Neil Versel (@nversel)
Jane Sarasohn-Kahn (@healthythinker)
Regina Holliday (@ReginaHolliday)
Dave Chase (@ChaseDave)
Matthew Holt (@boltyboy)
David Lee Scher, MD (@DLScherMD)
Arthur Lubitz, MD
Aafia Chaudhry, MD (@AafiaC)
Leah Carey (@thehealthmaven)
Patricia Salber of The Doctor Weighs In and HealthTechHatch @healthtechhatch
Alex Fair of Medstartr @medstartr
Nate DiNiro (@UncleNate ) of OpenAffairs.TV – @OpenAffairs
Gregg Masters of XanateMedia, @2healthguru, @ACOWatch, @JustOncology

Together, we have created the world’s first network dedicated entirely to independent healthcare innovation programming.

Who is Watching?

Programming has been distributed via our network of affiliated journalists/bloggers averaging 250,000 unique monthly viewers in our first month! And you will have the opportunity to participate as well by choosing the “I WANT TO PLAY HIBC.TV” option on the right.

Just during HIMSS13 alone, for example, we reached over 45,000 viewers and had well over 4 million impressions.

When will it be live?

We launched the network and broadcast our first 96 hours of content LIVE from the 2013 HIMSS conference.

We have professionals, equipment, and over 20 interviews in the “can”. What we need is you!

What kind programming is offering? was conceived to provide a platform for independent voices to bring programming to an audience hungry for meaningful innovation in the health industry whether technology, platform, app or business model. Frequently, health industry stakeholders complain of the digital divide between programmers/developers and the real world of healthcare workflows and operations. We intend to do our best to minimize if not bridge these sometimes clashing cultures.

Here are examples of our programming:

Social HIMSS

Hosted by Gregg Masters @2HealthGuru discusses the stats and stars of social media at HIMSS and telling you what all those crazy abbreviations mean.

Health 2.0 NYC

Hosted by Alex Fair – Bringing you live events from the health Innovation Capital of the World!

How can you help

First, as the audience, we need to know if you will watch it? If so, please show your love by clicking the I WANT MY HiBC.TV at the right and make a contribution. This will not only support the idea, but it shows that we have an audience that really wants this to exist. We will also send you the HiBC.TV Guide, an electronic weeklyhat are coming up so you can stay on top of all your favorite shows.

Next we need Syndication – would you add the live feed to your website or blog? We will provide our feed for free to any contributing journalist or blogger, but if you want a customized version for your site, show your early support by taking the “I WANT to PLAY HiBC.TV”. Do it now so you can be one of the first 25 that will get it in time for HIMSS and have it for every other conference and our regular shows.

After places to show the shows, we next need the Shows themselves. We have some great ones lined up already but in order to have a real network we need to have a full line up. What are you a world expert at and want to share every week or month? Here is your chance to become the nest Dr. Oz or Oprah. If you already have lined up a sponsor, then go ahead and just buy air time Not ready for your close up? That’s fine, just tell us what kind of shows you would like to see, also in the comments.

Finally, most importantly, we need advertisers and sponsors. We have assembled a number of sponsorship packages at the right. Obviously this isn’t the SuperBowl yet, but the viewers, as you will see from the backers above, are not your average Joes and Janes either.

Why did we choose to start now at HiMSS 2013?

HiMSS’2013 assembled a time-limited, though comprehensive, critical mass of thought leaders, policy wonks, activists, epatients, payors, providers and regulators into a dynamic series of conversations in the healthcare innovation theater. Absent digital capture and selective audience targeting the content half life of HiMSS messaging opportunities may not have the impact intended by its sponsors, organizers and participants. Our presence, engagement, capture, and amplification of those conversations will leverage and extend the useful life of the generated content generated. Go watch the content now, it is pretty amazing!
