I had the privilege to be part of the hosting team on the live streaming online conference on You Tube, first IBM SEE Industry Talk of its kind. IBM focused on key healthcare indicators and transformation process in healthcare, worldwide. The example of integrated IBM data center and network at Unihospital has been the spotlight of this hot topic. It’s interesting that from the six Bulgarian natives on the panel, all came from specific different expertise on a global level: IBM South East Europe, Digital medicine futurist from Glaxo Smith&Klein, Google Plus Expert, Medical Doctor and Patient Organisation Chairman. IBM Watson Healthcare Expert joined from Prague and Google Partner joined from Georgia, US. The speakers on the panel came from 6 locations: Sofia, Panagyurishte, Vienna, Toronto, Atlanta and Prague.
The Conference had a consecutive translation live online, which is the first ever experience of its kind and it went quite well. Speaking in one’s native language is contributing to in depth talk, more insights and makes the Conference rich in more aspects and experiences to the participants.
The interactive comments were taken care on IBM SEE You Tube channel since Google is separating Hangouts and events from Google Plus and Spaces was not accessible from some of the domains of the participants. The guests invited journalists from Romania, Serbia and Bulgaria were a part of the event, asked questions and got the answers during the Q&A sessions at the end. The conference was open for the announced 40 min and it finished in time. Thank you to IBM SEE, UP Agency, Viktor Donkov Interpreter, Stan Bush, and all participants. You can watch the event on replay.
It’s been an extraordinary experience to be part of the first-ever live online Industry Talk for IBM SEE. The fact that UniHospital Bulgaria is in the spotlight of a worldwide transformation in healthcare augmented the excitement of the Bulgarian participants, including myself. We could look from the perspective of the transitioning steps and become aware that this is just the beginning. Most important, it’s a chance for Bulgarians to invalidate the shocking numbers of death rate and expenditure and take advantage of an integrated technology system as a whole solution.
The highlight from the event is Doctor Lucia Dobreva’s message. It’s the first consecutive translation in Hangouts, as far as I and +Stan Bush know.

Comments: “Thanks for the great summary. Indeed this hangout discussion was a great experience and a great way for us to highlight a very important topic. Healthcare across South East Europe can be easily deemed deathcare as SEE countries spend between 6 and 10% of GDP on healthcare, yet this does not translate into higher life expectancy and
