Get Ready For A Brave New World
February 4, 2012

Canadian author Don Tapscott has been hosting a special five-part series on CBC Radio One called ReCivilization, in which he gathers some of the most prominent thinkers in several fields to discuss the major challenges facing our world.

So far, Don and his guests have tackled questions about the new media landscape and the development of open-source knowledge. This week's subject is Collaborative Health Care, and the notion that patient-directed care and the internet can fundamentally change the way we manage our health. He'll be joined by James Heywood, the founder of patient networking site PatientsLikeMe; Dr. Mike Evans, director of the Health Design Lab at St. Michael's Hospital in Toronto; Dr. Jay Parkinson, a New York doctor who uses technology to make house calls; and Sir Andrew Witty, CEO of GlaxoSmithKline.

Dr. Mike Evans was one of the creative forces behind the Animated Guide to Staying Healthy that we posted on our site a few weeks ago:

You can tune in to the discussion this Sunday, at 11:00 a.m. on CBC Radio One.

Don was on the show last year, talking about the power of social media and revolution, and his book "Macrowikinomics".
