If you've been following the ongoing debate about the merits of Enterprise 2.0, you'll likely agree that we need to hear from more companies actually doing this stuff and that can point to specific business value as a result of their efforts. Our agenda for the San Francisco Conference will include a heavy dose of cases studies and customer perspectives that will get right to the heart of the value of Enterprise 2.0 in hard business terms.With that in mind, I'd like to announce the next winner in our call for papers selection process. Kaiser Permanent is one of the largest health care providers in the US with 8.6 million members and 200,000 people on staff. This session was submitted by Miles Appel from Kaiser Permanente and Gia Lyons (@gialyons) from Jive Software. Mike and Gia, please join us in San Francisco to present your session on:

Making Health Care Providers Social: Kaiser Permanente''s Enterprise 2.0 AdoptionKaiser Permanente''s success as a premier health care organization depends on connecting approximately 200,000 physicians, nurses, employees, and contractors to promote collaboration, the sharing of best practices, and overall continuous improvement. KP IdeaBook is a socio-collaborative environment that helps make this happen. Learn how we''re rolling out KP IdeaBook in a way that creates excitement and sustained adoption, while balancing the risk of introducing an open environment in a regulated industry and a traditional culture. We will also share how our Enterprise 2.0 vendor is helping us to develop adoption strategies.Miles Appel, Executive Director, Intranet Web Capabilities, ISG, Kaiser PermanenteGia Lyons, Strategic Consultant, Jive Software

Congratulations Miles and Gia!
